“Opening The X-Files” is Now Available on Amazon Kindle and Google Books!
Frequently cited on my Year of Bests series, blogger and now author Darren Mooney has just released a compendium of his thoughts on the seminal TV series of the ’90s — The X-Files. To be on my reading list shortly (via my Kindle app)…the analog form, i.e., paperback, lands on October 15, 2017 here in the U.S. Either way, so looking forward to this.
Just a quick update to let you know that my new book, Opening The X-Files: A Critical History of the Original Series, is now available as an eBook from Amazon and Google Books. Links available below.
There will also be a print book available, and that will be released in a few weeks. But if you absolutely, positively have to read it now, you can pick it up for your eReader of choice at that links below.
The book has been a labour of love. It is basically the distillation of all of my reviews of The X-Files into a singular linear narrative that charts the show from its origins and influences through to the release of I Want to Believe. It includes sidebars and tangents for particular creators of interest and for the various other tie-ins, spin-offs and other interesting thematic divergences.

Looks like an intriguing read, Michael.
Never really got the hang of the original Fox series. But I did like the shadowy, dusty sets throughout Canada. And the directors and camera men allowing the audience to see only what they wanted to be seen.

Yeah, am looking forward to getting back into these seasons. Thanks, Kevin. 🙂
Right now, I’m finishing the last of the 3 book “Complete Hammer’s Slammers” series of short stories, novellas and novels by Vietnam veteran, David Drake.
A compelling premise set in the future where a mercenary armor unit equipped with hover tanks and Armored Personnel Carries fight proxy wars for top dollars from aggrieved settlers.
Many similarities to the TO&E of The Dark Horse Cavalry, its soldiers, battles and skirmishes fought in that war so long ago.

Cool! Thanks for the recommendations, Kevin. We’ve similar tastes with sci-fi and military history. Finished the Bobiverse SF trilogy of sentient spacecraft by Dennis E. Taylor and am currently engrossed with Mark Bowen’s HUE 1968.
