First up is Stranger Things: World Turned Upside Down: The Official Behind-The-Scenes Companion, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Based on Stranger Things the Netflix show, Eleven's mom was a participant in the USA government's MKUltra program, a real program often made the source of both conspiracies and fictional work.

Penguin Random House is partnering with Netflix to publish books based on the tremendously successful Stranger Things TV series.

This publishing deal will expand the Stranger Things mythos next spring with a prequel book focusing on Eleven's mother and her involvement in the dastardly MKUltra program.

Stranger Things is coming to your local bookstore! Season 2 explored a bit of that backstory from Eleven's point of view, as she discovered what happened to her mother and how she came to have her telekinetic abilities, but a full-length book will shed a lot more light on how that all happened.

Trump administration will no longer defend the Affordable Care Act in court
Sessions said in his letter that the Justice Department was not arguing that the entire law does not pass constitutional muster. The state has been at the forefront in resisting many Trump Administration policies, including on health care and immigration.

The novel is going to be penned by Gwenda Bond, who you might know as the brilliant author behind the Lois Lane lane trilogy and the Cirque American trilogy.

Two Stranger Things books are on their way from Penguin Random House. More books for young readers and adults will arrive later in 2019.

Sounds absolutely incredible. We'll let you know more about it when we get it.

The Stranger Things books will initially be released under the US and British Commonwealth publishing teams of Del Rey Books, Random House Children's Books, Cornerstone Publishing, and Penguin Random House Children's UK.
