Phoenix is a very early X-Files story by Sarah Stegall.

It may be the first X-Files story to contain song lyrics.

It was first posted to in 1994 and then published in the print zine Media Rare #3 in May 1995.


Mulder and Scully are in to investigate what may be a man made of fire.

Reactions and Reviews

Don't let the /other part of the story scare you away from it - leave that to the fire. Sarah writes about forest fires like they're a character in their own right, which in a way they sort of are in this spooky X-File where a bit of MSR creeps into the mix. It's especially fun to read this story thinking about its season two context, where the canon in season one's "Darkness Falls" and "Fire" play large roles. [1]
