Co-author of the popular YA books, Beautiful Creatures and Dangerous Creatures, Kami Garcia, is writing a book about Agent Mulder — yes, as in, The X-Files’ Agent Mulder. The book, Agent of Chaos, is set in 1979, when Fox Mulder was 17-years-old. Don’t worry, Agent Scully gets a book too, also set in 1979. Devil’s Advocate follows 15-year-old Dana Scully and is written by Jonathan Maberry, author of novels like Assassin’s Code, Dead of Night, and Patient Zero. The books are set to publish in January 2017.

“Writing an X-Files origin story about teenage Fox Mulder is a dream come true. Even the series name (The X-Files Origins) blew my mind. The only thing that makes the project cooler is that my publisher/editor Erin Stein is at the helm, and rock star YA author Jonathan Maberry is writing the other novel, about teen Scully,” says Garcia.

Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Creatures’ co-author, helped launch YALLFest in Charleston, but their ties to the Lowcountry don’t stop there. In a 2010 article with City Paper Garcia says, “Charleston is my favorite Southern city, I’ve been there a million times. We’re captivated by the strong sense of place here.”
