<INTERFACE 2037 READY FOR INQUIRY>
Welcome to Spotlight on… Alien Explorations, the web site written by Dominic Kulcsar that examines the Alien films – and the influence of H. R. Giger – in exhaustive detail!
Over the next six days, we will have a look at a variety of articles that bring to light details about the creation of the Nostromo in ALIEN.
Dominic cites reference material for all of his articles, which can be very educational as one encounters new tidbits of information about this favored science fiction film. The care with which he carefully documents these things is laudable, and an investment in fandom’s understanding of how ALIEN came to be and saving us from ambiguous stories with no factual basis.
For your convenience, I have posted hyperlinks to the first eight below.
