After long last, I’m really excited to say that yes, I’ve been writing a novella for Black Mirror. Myself, Cory Doctorow and Sylvain Neuvel are doing three separate novellas drawn on the themes and ethos of the TV series, for release as one volume around February 2018. It’s a real honour to get to play with this universe, and Operation Don’t Cock It Up is well underway.
And it’s a tricky operation too. Black Mirror isn’t a single universe, or a single theme; it’s awesomeness comes from the scale and depth of its ideas, and wading into that with a cry of “I write books what what!” is an adventure. I can’t say much more at this stage, except to look out for the first volume in 2018….
