Dissecting Aliens by John L. Flynn. In 1995, prior to the release of "Alien: Resurrection," Flynn wrote an interesting and informative study of the popularity of the Alien films. 20th Century-Fox opened its vaults so that John could read the original scripts and look at the background material for "Alien" (1979), "Aliens" (1986), and "Alien 3" (1993). He conducted interviews with most of the original casts, and compiled an exceptional work. The book was a huge success in England.

And although the book contains many interesting black-and-white photos, they are all maddeningly devoid of the helpful captions that would have made them more than just decorations. As a longtime fan of the Alien franchise, I must admit that I did enjoy the book: but I can't imagine that any non-fans will care very much.
