As such, this is one of — if not the only — guide of its kind to cover all 13 seasons of this extremely popular property. With this unauthorized guidebook, X-Files fans will be able to reevaluate these TV series with Shearman (World Fantasy Award winner, Hugo Award nominee, renowned playwright, writer on the new Doctor Who series and all-around nice guy) as he diligently comments upon all 282 X-Files-related episodes (and the two motion pictures), which form one of the most notable TV works of the 1990s — and is every bit as enjoyable today. Armed with Wanting to Believe, you will not only find yourself mulling over Shearman’s insights and opinions about The X-Files — you will want to pull your DVDs and re-watch this amazing and impressive series for yourself.
