Alien Isolation is out now for pretty much every console and PC, and is the newest title in the video game tie-ins for the film franchise. With such a deep and scary universe the Alien franchise has been ripe for a good game, but almost every attempt has fallen flat. Well, now that Alien Isolation is released, consider that dry spell long gone.

Another IHC regular self publishes: 'A Dark Pattern'
All and sundry. have finally self-published my novel, A Dark Pattern. It’s available for the bargain price of $4.44. And it mentions IHC! Just look at Chapter 7.
A Dark Pattern is a Weird Fiction Mystery set in Seattle. It involves romance, fear, psychoactive drugs, trans-dimensional demons, stray cats, dive bars, a slaughter of not-so-innocents, precognition, baseball, military-grade drones, panty-sniffing, ramen-stealing, and much more. It starts with a hornet’s sting and ends with a bang.
Not really asking anything, but I got to meet Joss Whedon yesterday. He was pretty cool. I confess that I got a little gooey, mentally speaking. I didn't exactly fawn, but I came close.
That’s not bad. I tend to get really light-headed meeting celebrities in person. It’s not from “OMGILOVEYOUSOMUCH”, but just the weirdness of meeting someone in person that you’ve seen on TV, movies etc. I accidentally met Natalie Merchant once and I’m not even a big fan, but I nearly fainted, because wow wtf is Natalie Merchant doing here?
The site seems to be updating sparsely over the last month or so. You got something cool going on? Tell us what you've been up to.
A whole lot of real life work as well as a bunch of other small projects that I’m working on slowly. A couple years ago, when the site was being updated every hour for 12 hours a day, that was a tremendous amount of work for one person— I was only sleeping a couple hours a night for a while, and while it at times appears that I’ve given up on IHC, that’s not really the case, I’m just no longer killing myself to try and keep up with much bigger sites with an actual paid staff of people.
