The X-Files is another of the titles joining in the "Deviations" fun, with “Time and Being” exploring a world in which Fox Mulder was abducted instead of Samantha.

As with 2015’s Trust No One, this year’s short story anthology collects fifteen stories from a wide variety of authors including Sarah Stegall (co-author of The Official Guide to The X-Files Volumes One - Three), Greg Cox (author of novels for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek, Warehouse 13 and more), and Rachel Caine (author of the Morganville Vampires series).
