Matt here: Recently an X-Files book was just published whose theme is long overdue, a book that explores the spiritual aspects of the X-Files. Long time fan, Amy Donaldson's "We Want To Believe: Faith and Gospel in the X-Files".

Here's a few positive comments from none other than Frank Spotnitz, and the author of "The Philosophy of The X-Files".

"What a wonderful book. With grace and intelligence, Amy Donaldson explores the questions of faith and mystery that form the secret heart of the The X-Files. Skeptics and believers alike are bound to come away with new insights into the series--and life."
--Frank Spotnitz
Executive Producer, The X-Files

"Donaldson utilizes the synergy and convergence of Mulder and Scully's relationship and her impressively vast knowledge of the X-Files universe to uniquely argue that by not giving up on the truths of the heart--faith, hope, and love--one may thereby discover (and become renewed in) the 'truest truths' that are 'out there.'"
--Dean A. Kowalski
author/editor of The Philosophy of The X-Files

Matt here: We ended up being lax about getting the updates posted in March, my apologies for that. Joe McBrayer's article for the Omnibus has been up, on the fascinating subject of Exorcisms.

We also updated the Character Dossier pages with new character descriptions, and art.

Again the podcast interview for The X-Files Truth was great fun. Agent Summer and Agent Shadow have been incredibly kind, and enthused, and I appreciate the experience, as one last reminder, you can check it out here.
