David Duchovny ads a third novel to his shelf after the success of “Holy Cow” and “Bucky F*cking Dent.” “Miss Subways” will be available May 1, 2018, and is available for pre-order from a variety of stores.
Macmillan publishers shares this summary: “Emer is just a girl living in New York City who takes the subway, buys ice cream from the bodega on the corner, has writerly aspirations, and lives with her boyfriend, Con. But is this life she lives the only path she’s on? Taking inspiration from the myth of Emer and Cuchulain, loosely based on W. B. Yeats’s play The Only Jealousy of Emer, and featuring an all-star cast of mythical figures from all over the world, David Duchovny’s darkly funny fantasy novel Miss Subways is one woman’s trippy, mystical journey down parallel tracks of time and love. On the way, Emer will battle natural and supernatural forces to find her true voice, power, and destiny. A fairy tale of love lost and regained, Miss Subways is also a love letter to the city that enchants us all: New York.”
The next audio adventures of Mulder and Scully, “The X-Files: Stolen Lives,” will be available from Audible on October 3rd. Get a head start on your listening and check out these excerpts shared by Audible and Bleeding Cool. Like “Cold Cases,” “Stolen Lives” follows the stories in the Season 10 comic books from Joe Harris and IDW. The excerpts are from the arc set up in issues #16 and #17, “Immaculate” Part 1 and Part 2.
Scully dressing down Skinner about Mulder’s whereabouts is particularly delightful, as is Mulder’s snark while investigating.
If you haven’t given this audio world a try yet, check out our recap and review of “Cold Cases.”
“It’s interesting because the world of The X-Files is linked along parallel universes anyway. The first and the 10th of our new [TV] episodes are going to be mythology, and everything in between is going to be stand-alone. So that means that the world can be ending [in the first episode] and Scully can be the only person alive who can save the planet, yet in the next episode, we don’t even bring it up. That gives permission for this alternate world that’s a common thing in the spinoffs.“ - Gillian Anderson
Gillian had that to say about The X-Files, Season 11, and the new audiobook “Stolen Lives” that comes out on October 3rd. See what else she says about playing Scully, finding balance, and how she spends her Sundays in this article from Parade Magazine.
Based on the Season 10 comics from IDW, "Stolen Lives" continues the adventures of Mulder and Scully from "Cold Cases." The stories are written by Joe Harris, executive produced by Chris Carter, and produced for Audible by Dirk Maggs. As with the first audiobook, you won't need to be familiar with the comics to enjoy this audio version, but it will help. If you haven't yet listened to "Cold Cases" I'd suggest trying that first. The audio series does not follow the timeline established in the TV version of Season 10 so there are events and characters that would seem out of place to new listeners.
Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and Mitch Pileggi return to their roles, and other fan favorites lend their voices as well. "The X-Files: Stolen Lives" will be available on Amazon's Audible and if you're a new member, you can listen for free!
If her name isn't familiar to you, her character sure is. Karin Konoval played Ma Peacock in Season 4's "Home" and left many Philes checking under the bed in terror. Entertainment Weekly has confirmed Ms. Konoval will return for several roles in one episode in Season 11. She won't be revisiting Ma Peacock, but as creator Chris Carter says "she will be returning in a tour-de-force performance in an early episode. Or, more accurately, performances."

David Duchovny shared this peek at what they may be getting up to in Darin Morgan's episode. Is Mulder going as Swamp Thing for Halloween? Or maybe dressing in camouflage to hunt for Bigfoot in his backyard? It does look like they're hanging out on the porch of the Unremarkable House. Hurry up season 11!
