We’ve still got several months of waiting for the debut of season 3 of Stranger Things. Fans hungry for the backstory to the various residents of Hawkins, Indiana, can play the mobile game. Or they might try one of the prequel novels published by Del Rey Books that delves into the pasts of some of the peripheral characters.

Suspicious Minds, published earlier this month, tells the story of Eleven’s mother, Terry Ives, and how she got involved with MKUltra. A second prequel novel, Darkness on the Edge of Town, will arrive June 4 and focuses on police Chief Jim Hopper’s early years in New York City as a homicide detective. And yes, both are considered “canon,” for fans who are purists.
