'Stranger Things' Companion Book Available Today!

An official companion book for Netflix's hit series Stranger Things is available TODAY, and "Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down" sure looks worth it for fans of the show.

The book comes from Penguin Random House, and The Hollywood Reporter got some exclusive photos of the tome, as well as an excerpt. The outlet mentions that "Worlds Turned Upside Down" contains things like:

character bios modeled after a Dungeons & Dragons player character sheet, a "Monster Morphology" spread, which tracks the evolution of the Upside Down's most menacing creature from Pollywog through Demogorgon; and Eleven's Morse code decoder, which was featured on the show and is included with the companion book as a means of detecting secrets hidden throughout the text.

There is also a "a sneak preview of season three," but no one seems to know what all that preview is yet.
