In space, no one can hear you meow.
Have you ever looked at one of your pets and wondered what the world looks like through their eyes? I mean, our world of noise, industry, and technology must be somewhat confusing to our pups and kitties. So just imagine what life might be like for a pet in space; specifically, imagine what was going through the mind of Jonesy the cat during the terrifying ordeal aboard the Nostromo in Alien!
If you can’t, we’ve got just the book you need! Written and illustrated by Rory Lucey, Nine Lives on the Nostromo is due for release October 16th. It is also available to pre-order on Forbidden Planet.
Official Synopsis: “In space, no one can hear you meow. Aboard the USCSS Nostromo, Jonesy leads a simple life enjoying The Company cat food and chasing space rodents. Until one day, his cryostasis catnap is rudely interrupted. The humans have a new pet and it’s definitely not housetrained. This full-color, illustrated book offers a cat’s eye view of all the action from the movie Alien.”
