Happy 25 AnniverXary everybody..
Some stories were great. Some didn't make sense for the time period they were in. The last one was set in 2002 which was after season 9 so it didn't make sense that they were still FBI agents. And there were a few that were out of character (especially the one from Scully's POV.) But the others were all great. ...more

Super enjoyable for fans of the show. Some of the stories are a bit weaker than others, but I (almost) always think that about short story collections. After I finished it, I wanted to binge some episodes.

In general, I liked it, but it's true that I liked the other two of the saga more. It's entertaining and there are certainly good stories in it, but some others were more simple. To sump up, it's not bad. ...more

I love all things X-Files and this collection of short stories is no exception.

At this point in my life I am unable to be impartial towards anything having to do with the X-Files. The nostalgia is too great. As long as it feels somewhat true to the original series, I’m into it.

Great collection of short stories for people who love the show. Even with many different authors contributing, Mulder and Scully are just as dynamic on the page as they are on the screen. A few of the side characters felt a bit off, and some of the stories didn't feel like an episode of x-files, but overall its worth a read. ...more

Not nearly as good as the first two in the Trilogy.
It took me a while to listen to this one because it was a mix of hit and miss. Some of the stories I found really engaging and others just didn't quite hit the right note. For the most part, I enjoyed another chance to explore the X-Files universe, Mulder and Scully hitting the right notes for their characters, if only occasionally slipping out of character, but while they felt right supporting characters such as Skinner, Cigarette Smoking Man and Gibson just didn't quite sit right with the char ...more

A little bit about my background... I've always been a closet-writer. As a kid, I lived for the opportunity to write short stories. I was the editor of my high school newspaper for a while (the Valor Dictus, Robinson High School, class of 1975), until I quit ("You can't fire me! I quit!") over a lofty First Amendment issue that seemed very important at the time. My goal, in fact, was to become a j ...more
