The ultimate alien A-Z, featuring the greatest fantasy, TV, cinema, science fiction and real life aliens of all time. Here are the facts as we know them on everyTHING and everyBODY that mankind has encountered in fact and fiction - and in those strange dark places in between! Awesome Aliens ranging from Dalek Invaders to the Klingon Empire, via the sinister Greys and Men in Black, through Jawas, the Sand Worms of Dune, Time Lords, Venusians, Vulcans and Yoda. This is the complete guide to Interstellar life in the Galaxy, containing all the information a visiting humanoid needs to survive on the Galactic rim and beyond...And when you've been through it all. When you think you're ready to explore the galaxy, you can take the G.A.T. (The Galactic Aptitude Test.) This is a recognised interstellar exam which has been written by some of the biggest brains (and longest tentacles) in the Universe.

About the Author

Andrew grew up in the London suburb of Ilford. His early ambition was to be an astronaut, however with the British space programme consisting of one washing up bottle painted silver to look like a rocket, tragically it was not to be. Instead he became a writer, at first for comics (in both the UK and USA), and since the mid-nineties he has written over 30 books for children, including Collins, Scholastic, Hodder, Macdonald, DK and Bloomsbury.
