The LAX-Files is a fan-initiated charity book project from 2010 that collects anecdotes about the filming of the 6th season up to 9th season of The X-Files as well as the second X-Files feature film I Want To Believe.
The title is a play on the international code for the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), where the show's seasons 6 to 9 had been produced and the title of the show.
The book is dedicated to Kim Manners. The money that is raised with the sale of the book is donated to the American Cancer Society, selected by Kim Manners' family.
LAX-Files was written and published by Erica Fraga, an X-Phile. In collaboration with 40 fans from Los Angeles and all over the world, she has been able to collect many hitherto unknown information about the shooting of the seasons, including the help of cast and crew members such as David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, R.W. Goodwin and Laurie Holden.
In addition, the book contains detailed set descriptions of the locations in southern California, with the help of which one can easily visit the original sites yourself. A few highlights are, for example, Williams birthplace, the manor from the episode "How the Ghosts stole Christmas", the Federal Building from the first X-Files feature film and many more.
