Gillian Anderson Gets Back To Roots Pens Sci Fi Book Deal.

resizedimageGillian Anderson has penned a Sci Fi book deal. The former The X Files star as Special Agent Dana Scully. Thanks to publishers at Simon & Schuster she will travel back in time to the genre which made her famous, it will be a new imprint dedicated to speculative fiction called Simon451. Anderson and co writer Jeff Rovin will write and develop a new franchise, titled the EarthEnd Saga.

The first book, A Vision of Fire, follows the fortunes of a child psychiatrist who specializes in treating kids who have suffered trauma from natural disasters and war, and meets a girl with unique troubles in the process.

Anderson looks forward to take on this new venture, saying her X Files days help her with the perfect background material.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, “It’s been a fantastic experience. I enjoy writing, but don’t usually allow myself the time, and I don’t think I’d ever think to write something in this genre without the prodding of someone like Jeff.

“After nine years of living in a semi-science-fictional universe, I think I now have an ingrained knowledge and rhythm for it.”

A Vision of Fire will be released in October, 2014.
