The X-Files: beneath the tranquil surface of a north Texas town, the future of the human race awaits…
After forty years, members of the global conspiracy known only as the Project are finally nearing the completion of their plans.

And only they know that the truth isn’t out there anymore – it’s already here.

Written in perfectly deadpan, Mulderish style, Chris Carter's X-Files: Fight the Future film novelization (adapted by noted sci-fi author Elizabeth Hand) is a faithful reproduction of the film, with the addition of a couple of cutting-room-floor sequences to make it worth an X-phile's while. X-Files neophytes will probably be confused by the appearance of unexplained characters and in-jokes, but the story is like a really good episode of the show, and if you can be hooked, you will be. A few purely visual things don't translate well in the novelization. For instance, dialogue between the Cigarette-Smoking Man and the Well-Manicured Man, both referred to by their complete "titles" throughout, becomes an exercise in ridiculousness. But that could hardly have been helped, and otherwise the book accurately adapts the action and fast pace of the movie. A nice colour-photo spread completes the package.Review:
‘The X-Files leaves you in no doubt that you are watching television’s rarest phenomenon – an original gem, mined with passion and polished with care.’
‘The X-Files is a true masterpiece. There’s no more challenging series on television and, as a bonus, it’s also brainy fun.’
Los Angeles Times
‘The most provocative series on TV’
