Here’s a little about Elsa:

1. When did you become an X-Phile?

I became an X-Phile when I was a child. I was born in 1989 and I remember watching X-Files at a very young age. My older brother loved the show so I watched it with him. I was about 5 when I first saw an episode. I remember being really scared but I loved and still love to watch the show. So I guess I became an X-Phile back then.

Pre-Order Gillian Anderson’s Next Book

092115 WEYou may remember that in addition to her work on the Earthend Saga, Gillian Anderson is also hard at work on another book. WE: A Manifesto for Modern Women will hit stores next March. The self-help book was first announced in April, and its 2016 release will coincide with International Women’s Day. 

Gillian herself describes the book as “call-out to all women around the world…that we need to stick together and stand up for each other and not compete against each other.” In a day and age when there is a constant barrage of pressure on young girls and women, WE should be a very interesting read. 

Check out the original article on WE here, and head over to Amazon to pre-order the book now!




Review: The X-Files FAQ – All That’s Left to Know About Global Conspiracy, Aliens, Lazarus Species, and Monsters of the Week.

txffaq1With The X-Files FAQ, John Kenneth Muir presents us with a well-written, if at times exhaustive, look back at our favorite show. The book covers all nine seasons and two movies, going so far as to delve into precursors, spin-offs, and homages that would later be produced. The X-Files FAQ: All That’s Left to Know About Global Conspiracy, Aliens, Lazarus Species, and Monsters of the Week is a result of either painstaking research, or abiding love. I suspect it’s a combination of the two.

We have a copy of John’s book to giveaway, so read on for details and our full review.
