Alien Invasion From Hollyweird (The Outer Limits #10)

by John Peel

From inside the book: Melanie almost stopped breathing as she realized something. She couldn't feel anyone beneath the costume. It was as if there wasn't anybody actually inside the costume! Which was crazy. Of course there was! The waving spaghetti-tentacles were still writhing away. Melanie wished the actor would turn them off, as they made her feel queasy just to look at them. Then she realized something: the tentacles were bunched up, and angled in her direction. As if they were eyes and were really watching her. Melanie wanted to yell, or throw up or something. Then Jeff was beside her again. "Jeff," she said, voice trembling, "didn't you notice? That wasn't a special-effects alien! There was no actor inside it at all!" He frowned at her. "What are you trying to say, Melanie?" "That wasn't fake blood. Or a fake alien." Melanie couldn't stop trembling. "It was exactly what it looked like. That alien was real!"

Captain's Peril

by William Shatner Judith Reeves-Stevens John Peel

The Dominion War is over. The Federation is at peace. What better time for two legendary starship captains to set aside the demands of duty and simply take some well-deserved time off? But when James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard arrive on Bajor to dive among the ruins of an ancient sunken city, conditions are far from what they had planned. The small group of scientists the captains have joined suddenly find their equipment sabotaged -- isolating them from Deep Space Nine and any hope of rescue -- as one by one, a murderer stalks them. Cut off from the people and technology on which they have always depended, Kirk and Picard must rely more than ever on their own skills and abilities, and their growing friendship, to solve the mysterious deaths and protect one of Bajor's greatest living treasures. At the same time, Kirk finds the events he and Picard struggle with are similar to one of the first challenges he faced as the new captain of the Starship Enterprise , less than six months into his first five-year mission. Now, with time running out for a dying child trapped in the scientists' camp, and Picard missing after a diving disaster, Kirk must search his memories of the past to relive one of his earliest adventures, propelling him into a harrowing personal journey that reveals the beginning of his path from young Starfleet officer to renowned legend, and the existence of a new and completely unsuspected threat to the existence of all life in the universe. From the breathtaking shores of Bajor's Inland Sea to the welcoming arms of a seductive and deadly alien commander intent on making Kirk her own, Star Trek®, Captain's Peril is the exciting new novel that spans space and time to present Captain Kirk's most personal, and most extreme, adventure yet.

His face lit up. "Hi, Stacy," he said, cheerfully. "It's great to see you." She pulled away from him slightly. "Justin? Are you okay?" "Never better, sweetheart," he assured her. Sweetheart? Stacy stared at him, totally confused. He never called her that! What was going on here? "What happened to you?" Amy asked, considerably less tactful than Stacy. She stared at Justin. "What's with the middle-class poster boy look?" He frowned slightly. "I don't know what you mean," he confessed. "The clothes,'" Amy said, gesturing. "Why are you dressed like that? Your folks get really heavy with you because of your arrest?'' "Arrest?" Justin looked completely astonished. "Me? Arrested?" He laughed. "You're pulling my leg, right? Amy, you crack me up. Arrested? Me!" He laughed. Stacy was getting the chills clean through to the bone. What was going on here? This looked like Justin-except for the clothes. It sounded like Justin-except he was polite.
