Staff Reviews


As a fan of the The X-Files TV series, I couldn't resist reading this book.  It took me back to episodes that I still think of to this day and to some of the scariest TV I have ever watched!

In addition, a fascinating introduction gives insight to how and why this series was created and what other shows helped pave the way for its creation and success. A great read, not only for fans, but for anyone interested in the making of a TV show.
