Praise Be To The Alien-Filled Heavens, Gillian Anderson Has Published A Sci-Fi Novel

I always believed.


The LA Times reports that Gillian Anderson has written her first book, a “supernatural thriller” due in stores this October. Everything about that sentence is exciting to me.

Anderson’s debut novel A Vision in Fire was co-written with author Jeff Rovin and stars a female child psychologist sent to investigate mystifying phenomena. Here’s Simon & Schuster’s synopsis:

The daughter of India’s ambassador to the United Nations starts speaking in tongues and having violent visions. A young Haitian girl claws at her throat, apparently drowning on dry land. An Iranian boy suddenly sets himself on fire […] Called to treat the ambassador’s daughter, renowned child psychologist Caitlin O’Hara is sure the fits have something to do with the recent assassination attempt on her father — a shooting that has escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan — but when teenagers around the world start having similar outbursts, Caitlin is forced to consider a more sinister force at work.

Yup, that sounds like exactly the kind of plot I would want Scully: the author to pen. If you’re excited as we are, you can order your copy on Amazon now.
