Charlie Brooker’s frighteningly prescient television series Black Mirror is all about how humans use social media, video games, and other forms of technology to turn on each other in disturbing ways. But his latest project in that universe is exploring an entirely new format: the book. Del Rey, Penguin Random House’s science fiction and fantasy imprint, will release a series of three anthologies collecting the kinds of stories that made for nightmare-inducing TV episodes. Brooker will edit the collections, which will include “original, mid-length stories penned by soon to be announced popular writers.”
