Fresh off the presses... here it is for your enjoyment!
It seems like yesterday when all of this started, yet it has been twenty-four years since The X-Files premiered, and now… ten years since X-Files News opened its’ doors to so many of us.
From the very first iteration of our website, to the excitement building up to IWTB, the campaigns and productions, the trips and fan reunions, the conventions, the Q&A’s with cast and crew, and then the return of the show to the small screen… It’s been wild, it’s been unique, it’s been incredibly rewarding.
We’ve been blessed with fictional and real role models that have inspired careers, promoted change, and created friendships and families all over the world.
This amazing experience continues to grow and transform; it’s a labor of love for everyone that has ever been involved in the many arenas that we’ve covered over time. With new generations joining our beloved fandom, we hope to adapt to changing times, always welcoming and promoting the best of this community. X-Philes are the best fandom for a reason, and we’re privileged to have served you for so many years.
We want to thank every single one of you that have walked this road with us: to the ever gracious, talented and selfless members of the cast and crew of the show, that entertained and welcomed so many crazy ideas and the tenacious hunger for more. To 20th Century Fox, for trusting us and daring to believe with us. Thanks to our families for understanding that this quest is a lifestyle. Thanks to the fans, because without you, we wouldn’t have a reason to exist.
Here’s to many more trips around the sun, filled with the excitement of the unique experience of being a fan of The X-Files.
Another audiobook has joined The X-Files library shelf. "The X-Files: Stolen Lives" was released by Audible on October 3rd. Based on the Season 10 comics from IDW, this 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. Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and Mitch Pileggi return to their roles, and other fan favorites lend their voices as well. As with the first audiobook, you don't need to be familiar with the comics to enjoy this audio version, but it does 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. "Stolen Lives" has some solid scares so if you're a monster of the week fan you're in luck. But it also dives into some mythology, though not quite as heavily as "Cold Cases."
Does "Stolen Lives" pass the bar set by "Cold Cases?" Hit the jump for our recap and review.
