Get inside the world of Stranger Things and discover everything you need to know about the hit TV show

Grab your Eggos and prepare to enter Hawkins, Indiana – just don't forget your fairy lights.

If you devoured Stranger Things and you're looking to fill the demogorgon-sized hole in your life, then look no further than Notes From the Upside Down. This fan handbook is here to tell you more about the origins of the show, including the mysterious Montauk Project conspiracy theory, get you clued up on the inspirations behind the characters, and assess the show's DNA.

If you've ever wondered why Spielberg is such a huge influence, which Stephen King books you need to read (HINT: pretty much all of them) and how State Trooper David O’Bannon earned his name, then this book is for you.

Guy Adams is a superfan and this is his amusing and informative guide to everything you're going to need to know to understand Stranger Things.
