Black Mirror, the critically acclaimed Netflix original show, is a cultural phenomenon. Only this week creator Charlie Brooker accepted two trophies at the Emmy Awards for his beloved season three episode San Junipero, produced by Brooker’s TV production company House of Tomorrow.
And today Penguin Random House is delighted to reveal the authors of the first volume of Black Mirror fiction.
Edited by Charlie Brooker, the three-volume series of original fiction will feature novella-length stories from leading names within the literary world. The first volume, published in February 2018, will be authored by: New York Times bestseller Cory Doctorow, Carnegie-nominated Claire North and Sylvain Neuvel, author of Sleeping Giants. Each author will provide their own all-original story in the style of the show, with soon to be revealed plotlines.
Speaking after the announcement of the collection, Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker said: "All-new Black Mirror stories from exciting authors - that’s a joyous prospect. And they’re appearing in a high-tech new format known as a 'book'. 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. Sounds far-fetched to me, but we’ll see."
