THE X FILES GROUND ZERO BY KEVIN J.†ANDERSON



Copyright 1995.

Dr. Emil Gregory a renowned nuclear physicist is found dead in his laboratory at the Teller Nuclear Research facility in California. The nature of his death is very peculiar. He is found burned to a radioactive cinder almost like he was caught in a nuclear explosion. A nuclear explosion that was confined to a single room. Naturally anything weird and unexplained gets forwarded to the X-files. Mulder and Scully head out to California and immediately run into a wall of bureaucratic dead ends and national security. Soon after this other mysterious deaths occur under the same circumstances. A rancher whose family sold the land for the Trinity test, two Air Force officers in a nuclear silo, a Department of Energy bureaucrat. Soon the trail leads to a mysterious project code named Bright Anvil a new nuclear explosion with no fallout. It all comes to a climax on a small Atoll in the Pacific during a hurricane. An atoll where back in the fifties a whole tribe was accidentally wiped out in one of the atomic tests. Now the ghosts of that tribe strike out in vengeance.

Finally a X-files book that that gets it right. The Charles Grant books were commercial successes and lets face it back then anything with X-files on it would make money. But they were not critically well received so they went with Kevin Anderson. This is what an X-files book should be, government cover ups and mysterious clandestine tests, a mysterious paranormal threat. Anderson is a writer that really understands the characters and the TV series. He clearly did a lot of research and you learn a lot about the nuclear tests back in the fifties. They were finally on the right track in novelizing the series.

THE X FILES RUINS BY KEVIN J.†ANDERSON



Copyright 1996.

An archeological expedition to the Yucatan has discovered a Mayan city deep in the jungle. The city of Xitaclan has been undisturbed for centuries. While exploring the team lead by Cassandra Rubicon disappears. The father of Cassandra convinces the FBI to investigate and naturally the FBI chooses Mulder and Scully. Mulder being the more imaginative one thinks that there is an extraterrestrial connection with ancient astronauts. Scully tends to believe in a more mundane explanation.

When they arrive in the lost city they run into a whole boatload of conflict. A shady guide who deals on the side in stolen artifacts. Superstitious natives that still believe in blood sacrifice. A police chief secretly in charge of a Yucatan secessionist terrorist movement. Sightings of mythical feathered serpents in the jungle. A strange alien spacecraft inside the pyramid. After finding the team murdered and dumped in a sacrificial pool all hell breaks loose when a covert U.S. military commando group shows up to blow up the city to stop a mysterious radio signal emanating from the pyramid. It ends in a battle between the commandos and the secessionist with a visit by the mysterious aliens.

The second book by Anderson is even better than the first. I think this is my favorite X-files book. The exotic location of the Yucatan was an excellent setting. Throw in aliens and government conspiracy and you have a classic X-files story. The history and culture of the Yucatan was well researched and informative. Lots of fast paced action and an interesting story that keeps the mystery going makes this a worthy book in the X-files series.

THE X FILES ANTIBODIES BY KEVIN J.†ANDERSON



Copyright 1997.

A security guard at the Dymar research facility is found dead from a fatal disease. The Dymar was recently destroyed by arson from animal rights activists killing the head researcher and his assistant. The strange nature of the death qualifies it as a X-file and so Mulder and Scully go to Oregon to investigate. Their investigation soon points that animal rights activists were a cover for the shadow elements of the government who were really responsible for the fire. They wanted to suppress a new nanotechnology that could be the key to immortality. Now the lab assistant has survived and is infected with defective nanobots that are killing him and infecting anyone he comes into contact. The key to the cure is the researcherís son who was cured of his terminal cancer and hiding out in a cabin in the Oregon wilderness.

The third and final Kevin Anderson book in the series is another solid story. He managed to cover a different X-files theme in each of his books. The first dealt with the paranormal. The second with aliens and this one with science gone horribly wrong. Sort of all the major themes from the TV series. Once again there was well researched information on nanotechnology showing he puts a lot of effort in this stories. His books were all unique and kept within the mythology that the series established. This books were a great improvement from the Charles Grant ones.
