Get the New Stranger Things Novel at Barnes and Noble in May, Get a Free Poster
The newest Stranger Things novel Darkness on the Edge of Town (cue the Springsteen), by Adam Christopher, hits stores on May 28th. Revealed today at ECCC, if you pick up the book at a Barnes and Noble store, you can get a free print of this exclusive poster.
The poster features Hopper when he was a beat cop in New York City in the 70's. This sounds like a really interesting backstory for the fan-favorite character, as a fan myself I am pretty excited to see where this all goes. Check ut the cover and full book description below:
Chief Jim Hopper reveals long-awaited secrets to Eleven about his old life as a police detective in New York City, confronting his past before the events of the hit show Stranger Things.
Christmas, Hawkins, 1984. All Chief Jim Hopper wants is to enjoy a quiet first Christmas with Eleven, but his adopted daughter has other plans. Over Hopper's protests, she pulls a cardboard box marked "New York" out of the basement—and the tough questions begin. Why did Hopper leave Hawkins all those years ago? What does "Vietnam" mean? And why has he never talked about New York?
Although he'd rather face a horde of demogorgons than talk about his own past, Hopper knows that he can't deny the truth any longer. And so begins the story of the incident in New York—the last big case before everything changed. . . .
Summer, New York City, 1977. Hopper is starting over after returning home from Vietnam. A young daughter, a caring wife, and a new beat as an NYPD detective make it easy to slip back into life as a civilian. But after shadowy federal agents suddenly show up and seize the files about a series of brutal, unsolved murders, Hopper takes matters into his own hands, risking everything to discover the truth.
Soon Hopper is undercover among New York's notorious street gangs. But just as he's about to crack the case, a blackout rolls across the boroughs, plunging Hopper into a darkness deeper than any he's faced before.
