I have been collecting the X-files and Millennium books, and have come up nearly empty on 5 books which are listed on Wikipedia, three are Millennium novelizations, and two are X-files novelizations as follows.
* Weeds by Victor Koman ISBN13: 9780061058424
* Force Majeure by Lewis Gannett ISBN13: 9780061059629
* The Wild and The Innocent by Jorge Zamacona and/or Elizabeth Massie ISBN13: 9780061059230
* Ascension by Quentin Thomas ISBN10: 0694518662 ISBN13: 9780694518661 (this is a novelization of the episodes Duane Barry/Ascension/One Breath)
* Hunter by Charles L. Grant ISBN10: 006105416X ISBN13: 9780061054167 (novelization of the episodes Colony and Endgame)
The only books on this list i couldn't find a photo of online, were Force Majeure, and Hunter. Most of the editions of the Millennium books i found online, were of editions in languages other than English ( i believe they were in French and Spanish and/or German)
if anyone has any additional information on these books, or suggestions as to where I might obtain a copy of any of them, it would be greatly appreciated.
Snow Files of the Week: "Cortege" (1999/2002) from the "Cold Spring" sampler "The Chamber".
Here we have a very rare occasion, where Mark didn't compose for a movie or a tv series. The track "Cortege" was supposed to be an appetizer for an all non-movie album called "Death...be not proud", consisting entirely of new compositions by Mark.
The release date was set for spring of 1999, there was even a tracklist (Intonation, Cortege, If Hitler Had Autism, Mr Jones, Quietude and Colonel Parkinson). But apparently, that never happened, at least I coulnd't find anything concerning the album. It's not even listed on the label's website. The only thing, that was released, seems to be this track.
I sent a message to the label and got a very surprising response. Mark indeed started working on the album, but he had more and more soundtrack work on his hands, that he just didn't have the time to continue working on this album. The label still has a master for the album with a running time of 25 minutes and they now want to contact Mark again, if he still wants to finish it. So, sometimes asking is not a bad thing. 😉
The track shows Mark in his dark ambient mode. This is for all those dark-and-moody-loving X-Files fans.
