Publisher Comments:

The Complete X-Files is a declassified look at all nine seasons of the American Peabody and Emmy Award-winning science fiction television series created by Chris Carter. Delve into the mystery and myth of X-Files with in-depth looks at its entire television run, the first X-Files film, and the upcoming cinematic sequel. X-Files creator and producer Chris Carter takes us into the never-before-seen archives with explanations of unsolved plots, discussions of the FBI's paranormal investigations, scene by scene breakdowns of popular episodes, and insider information on both the previous and upcoming X-Files films. Discover the mystery behind Mulder's alien abduction, Scully's secret objectives, the designs of the shadowy "Cancer Man," and the full truth about the Mytharc episodes. Includes many bells and whistles, such as gatefolds, alien and monster charts, alien and monster cards, movie posters, a secret dossier, Mulder and Scully booklets , and more! The Complete X-Files will captivate fans and sciencefiction audiences, proving that nothing is what it seems and that "the truth is out there."

About the Author

Matt Hurwitz is a prolific entertainment journalist, having written for Daily Variety, Washington Post, Hollywood Reporter, Directors Guild of America Magazine, International Cinematographers Guild Magazine, Videography, Digital Cinematography Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Emmy, American Cinematographer, Mix, Wired, and Fade In to name a few. His work takes him behind the scenes in film and television production, gathering up the stories of actors, directors, writers, cinematographers, composers and visual effects artists, to help tell the story of their work. A native of the Washington, D.C. area, Hurwitz currently lives in Los Angeles.

Chris Carter is the creator and executive producer of "The X-Files." Carter started Ten Thirteen Productions with a concept for "The X-Files" that he developed as a synthesis of urban myths, conspiracy theory, and stories of extra-terrestrial abduction. "The X-Files" was picked up by Fox and remained a hit primetime evening show from 1993 to 2002. "The X-Files" inspired a 1998 movie version written and produced by Carter, video games, and multiple network spin-offs. Carter is currently on location in Vancouver shooting the next "The X-Files" film slated for 2008.

I am a HUGE X-Files fan, however while this book is beautiful and informative it seems rushed and somewhat unfinished. There are multiple typos, incorrect information and could have used more photos from the series and behind the scenes. If it weren't for these silly mistakes I would have given the book 5 stars. This, however, is the most complete X-Files book I have seen and would recommend it to any X-Files fan, but you might want to wait and buy it used or wait until the $50 price tag goes down.
