Thanks for that Steve. I never knew there were that many books. I've been looking for something of this ilk for some time now but rarely see anything other than movie novelisations (which I don't have much interest in).

There were three novels based on Marvel's "Generation X" series done, of which I wrote the latter two, "Crossroads" in 1998 and "Genogoths" in 2000.
