Stanislaw Mayakovsky once wrote a book about the cybernetic ant he designed to infiltrate an Alien hive in order to gain precious knowledge about the species. Now, a beautiful young thief has approached Mayakovsky to use his experience and expertise — not in the pursuit of scientific knowledge, but in the pursuit of the Alien Queen's precious jelly. The mission is a perilous one, but the motives are compelling . . . Formerly collected as Aliens: Hive, this newest "remastered" Aliens Library Edition features an introduction and gallery by Kelley Jones!
