Black Mirror to be adapted into a series of books

Prior to the turn of the century, the anthology TV series format - a new story every week, with new characters in a new setting - was a TV mainstay, tracing back to classics like The Twilight Zone and continuing through later efforts like Tales from the Crypt. That's why we're so inspired by Charlie's total enthusiasm for this project and we're completely salivating at the prospect of him working with some of the smartest, sharpest novelists around in order to create more "Black Mirror' - but this time in book form".

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

Publishers Del Rey - an imprint of Penguin Random House - call it "an exciting collaboration between Charlie Brooker and leading fiction writers".

Black Mirror has found a new way to creep you out: The Netflix anthology show is being adapted into a book series.

Black Mirror is a British science-fiction series that applies a dark and satirical take to modern society and its relationship to technology. This collection will challenge you to see the world in a different-and more disturbing-light.

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.

Black Mirror premiered on Channel 4 in the U.K.in 2011, with the first two seasons airing there through 2014. He said, tongue-in-cheek, that you apparently only have to look at some kind of "ink code" on the paper and the sounds and images will then magically appear in your head, telling the story. "Sounds far-fetched to me, but we'll see". Magician Penn Jillette has revealed he has contribute one story to the series.
