Re: the literature/sources that "Alien" (1979) borrowed from

I've read Voyage of the Space Beagle. Good fun.

I'm surprised you haven't mentioned Dark Star. I would say it had the most influence on Alien. O'Bannon was IN it, wrote it... and has said the Beach Ball with Claws sequence led to it Alien...
