9780061050671: The X-Files: Fight the Future

Beneath the surface of North Texas, something has been sleeping for more than thirty-five thousand years, since the last ice age until the present, when a group of young boys stumble upon something unspeakable deep inside a cavern. Their discovery draws the attention of the mysterious group known only as the syndicate--but will the syndicate save humanity, or bring on a viral Armageddon?

In nearby Dallas, FBI special agents Fox Mulder And Dana Scully save hundreds of lives from a terrorist attack on a federal building. But in the government investigation that follows, their careers--and lives--are on the line, as the bureau attempts to pin the blame on them.

Why?

Mulder and Scully's search for answers takes them from FBI headquarters in Washington, D. C., to a hidden laboratory on the Texas border and finally to a frozen wilderness, where their worst suspicions about a global conspiracy are confirmed. And when Scully is kidnapped and infected with an extraterrestrial virus, Mulder has only hours to find the antidote and his partner before it s too late--for all of us.

Will one man be able to fight the future?

Review:

Written in perfectly deadpan, Mulderish style, Chris Carter's X-Files: Fight the Future movie novelization (adapted by noted SF author Elizabeth Hand) is a faithful reproduction of the film, with the addition of a couple of cutting-room-floor sequences to make it worth an X-phile's while. X-Files neophytes will probably be confused by the appearance of unexplained characters and in-jokes, but the story is like a really good episode of the show, and if you can be hooked, you will be. A few purely visual things don't translate well in the novelization. For instance, dialogue between the Cigarette-Smoking Man and the Well-Manicured Man, both referred to by their complete "titles" throughout, becomes an exercise in ridiculousness. But that could hardly have been helped, and otherwise the book accurately adapts the action and fast pace of the movie. A nice color-photo spread completes the package.
