Anthology of books based on TV series will offer “new, original, darkly satirical stories that tap into our collective unease about the modern world”

You’ve been creeped out by “Black Mirror” the TV series, now prepare to be creeped out by “Black Mirror” the book series.

Charlie Brooker, the creator of the unsettling Netflix series, and Penguin Random House announced Tuesday that “Black Mirror” is being adapted into a book anthology.

“We’re pleased to announce Black Mirror will soon be available in high-tech ‘paper’ format,” Brooker tweeted, adding, “All-new stories from different authors, yeah?”

The first volume in the series, due for a February 20, 2018 release, will be edited by Brooker and promises to take “the very essence of the globally acclaimed cult TV show to create new, original, darkly satirical stories that tap into our collective unease about the modern world.”

“This is ‘Black Mirror’ in book form, allowed to roam through the imaginations of some of the leading names in contemporary fiction,” a description of the maiden installment reads. “This collection will challenge you to see the world in a different –and more disturbing — light.”
