As we await season 4 of Black Mirror, its creator is throwing a book at us.

Penguin Random House U.K. has announced a new anthology book series from series creator Charlie Brooker, who has selected Cory Doctorow, Claire North, and Sylvain Neuvel to pen new stories. Brooker was appropriately snarky about the appearance of something called a “book” in a series devoted to the wonders and terrors of technology:

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.

Black Mirror just won two Emmys for season 3’s fan-favorite “San Junipero.” A season 4 release date has not been announced yet, though the episode titles have.

Volume 1 is set for release Feb. 22, 2018. Two more volumes are scheduled for 2018 and 2019.
