According to details, the first two books, which are aiming for a fall release, will be a behind-the-scenes companion book, followed by a hardcover gift book for younger readers.

Netflix and Penguin Random House are teaming up to release Stranger Things books, including a prequel novel.

The first book is a companion guide entitled Stranger Things: World Turned Upside Down: The Official Behind-the-Scenes Companion. The as-yet-untitled gift book will reportedly offer "advice, wisdom, and warnings from the Stranger Things world", says the publisher.

Whenever a show blows up in the way "Stranger Things" has, there's usually merchanside to go with it.

The Netflix hit show Stranger Things is getting a novel next year, but rather than focusing on the existing content, it will serve as a prequel introducing stories the show hasn't covered. While some titles are for younger readers, one title coming next spring seems particularly intriguing: a prequel centering around Eleven's mother and the MKUltra program, which played a significant part in giving the young girl her powers of the mind.

It'll be a long wait until Stranger Things season 3 arrives sometime in 2019, but how about a little bit of...odd reading to bide the time? Season 3 has already added three new characters: Francesca Reale (Haters Back Off) as a lifeguard at the Hawkins Community Pool "who becomes the centerpiece of a dark mystery", Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) as Mayor Kline, and Jake Busey (Star Ship Troopers) as Bruce, a journalist for the Hawkins newspaper.
