E.B.E. is another X Files book based on the tv series and written by Les Martin.
It is a dark night with plenty of stars in the sky. But the Iroquoian fighter pilot doesn't have time to enjoy them. He is up in the air to protect his country. Suddenly he sees a star coming down. No not a star, an flying object. He checks his radar but can't see anything. No wonder, the radar has been down before. He calls in to the base to check their radar. His friends answers that there isn't anything out there, and asks if he still has eye contact. He has lost eyesight, then he is blinded by a bright white light. After a moment his friend is back on again. He is surrounded by enemies and is allowed to open fire. He shoots down the object. The craft crashes near a VS station in Turkey.
A truck driver has an important load to get from one coast to the other. He has orders not to stop for anything. It is dark, and there's a storm coming. He's sleepy but it's an important trip. Suddenly there is a bright light and the lights of the truck, the engine and the radio die. He gets agitated and grabs his shotgun and checks his cargo. He's just outside when he sees that his doors are open wide. With his flashlight in one hand and the rifle in the other he goes to check out the noise. In the light he sees a pair of yellow eyes. He drops the flashlight, aims and shoots.
This is what Mulder has been waiting for. An X-file, thrown in his lab, and obviously a file about aliens. Scully thinks that there is yet another logical explanation. The weather, swamp gas, the guy was sleepy. Deep Throat is helping Mulder out - well so he says. And The Lone Gunmen are introduced. Yep the first appearance of Frohike, Byers and Langly. The episode was awsome on TV. This book brings out some good memories. But the book isn't as good as the TV episode. I think that this is such a case where you just have to see it.
