Black Mirror Is Being Turned into a Book Series

Black Mirror Is Being Turned into a Book Series

The series' third season aired on Netflix in October, and received a rapturous reception from the critics and the viewers.

The book is to be published by Del Rey.

If you thought you could escape from the world of high-tech dystopian drama Black Mirror by retreating to low-tech, tree-pulped literature, then think again - because Charlie Brooker's famously dark satirical sci-fi is now coming to a bookshop near you.

The high-tech dystopian drama series, which moved from the UK's Channel 4 to Netflix for its third season a year ago, is branching out with an old-fashioned paper-based book anthology, its creator announced Tuesday. However, while he is the screenwriter for the TV series, he did confirm that the books would be written by different authors and that it wouldn't be the same stories seen before on TV. This collection will challenge you to see the world in a different - and more disturbing - light. The publisher went on to say that they would be working directly with Brooker on the project.

So get ready to be bundled up in the bitter month of February with a whole new set of stories from the twisted brain of Brooker.

"Apparently you just have to glance at some sort of 'ink code" printed on paper and images and sounds magically appear in your head, enacting the story. "In fact, more than we suspect it will ever be possible for Charlie to make", Ebury Publishing Deputy MD and Publisher Jake Lingwood said in a statement. Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker will edit them.

Black Mirror premiered on Channel 4 in the U.K.in 2011, with the first two seasons airing there through 2014.
