A three-volume series of original fiction novellas will be edited by the creator of the popular Netflix anthology series, Charlie Brooker.

Though you'd be foolish to try and put "Black Mirror" in a box relating to genre, it's fair to say that a lot of what's been on offer so far is at least within touching distance of the sci-fi realm.

Charlie Brooker, a British journalist and screenwriter for the show, announced the news about the new #Book Series via Twitter, saying that "Black Mirror" is soon to be available in "high-tech "paper" format".

The authors have not been announced but publisher Penguin Random House said they will be "leading names within the literary world". Nor will they be based on stories that have appeared in the C4 or Netflix runs.

They say he did not mislead Congress because the encounters were part of his job as a senator, not as a surrogate of the Trump campaign.

"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". The first of three volumes is due to be published on February 20, 2018.

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

Jake Lingwood of Ebury Publishing said: "Black Mirror is the smartest, sharpest show on TV and as huge fans ourselves we know that we are always desperate for more episodes". Brooker himself is set to serve as editor of the books, one assumes to help make sure that each story feels like a proper entry into the established Black Mirror universe.

In a bit of an odd development for a show focusing so much on advanced technology, Black Mirror is set to be adapted into a series of books.
