As you have no doubt read, is proud to be involved in the online promotion of the event which will see Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz be joined by author Matt Hurwitz to promote the book "The Complete X-Files: A guide to the Myth and the Movies" in a book signing event on the 22nd April at 7.30pm at Barnes and Noble, The Grove, Los Angeles.

As part of our promotional activities, allow us to draw your attention to a fantastic competition to win one of two hardback editions of the aforementioned book thanks to a generous giveaway courtesy of Insight Editions. Being in with a chance of winning one of these superb books could not be simpler, no particular skills are required, there are no complicated criteria to meet and nothing to make or do!

All we require is that you guys get your thinking caps on and supply us with a humorous caption for the following image of the indomitable Frank Black passing Mulder and Scully on the stairwell (yeah, we know, they're body doubles but let's pretend shall we.)

Give us a caption for this image for a chance to win a copy of the book!

Yes, that really is all you have to do to win a copy of the book!

Because we are feeling extra generous we will not only send a copy of this book to the top two submissions as judged by ourselves but we will send a copy of Millennium Apocalypse to the submission judged in third place. What can you lose?

For those unfamiliar with this book allow me to say what a superb and thoroughly enjoyable trawl through the entire world of the X-Files this is.

The Complete X-Files is a declassified look at all nine seasons of the American Peabody and Emmy Award-winning science fiction television series created by Chris Carter. Discover the mystery behind Mulder's alien abduction, Scully's secret objectives, the designs of the shadowy "Cancer Man," and the full truth about the mytharc episodes. The book includes many bells and whistles such as gatefolds, alien and monster charts, alien and monster cards, movie posters, a secret dossier, Mulder and Scully booklets , and more! The Complete X-Files will captivate fans and science fiction audiences, proving that nothing is what it seems and that "the truth is out there."

If you are in the area we heartily recommend you join the chorus and support our 1013 brothers and sisters. We've also been part of the process of getting some media coverage so hopefully we can report anything that is said at the event in regards to Frank Black and Millennium! More on that when more is confirmed!

To celebrate this event we have an upcoming competition to be announced on Friday. We will be giving away two of "The Complete X-Files: A guide to the Myth and the Movies"! The two pristine sealed copies have arrived from the States courtesy of Palace Press Publishing and it is a great X-Files tome!
