‘Stranger Things: Flight of Icarus’ – Season 4 Prequel Book Will Tell Eddie Munson’s Origin Story

The breakout character from “Stranger Things 4” was unquestionably Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn), so it only makes sense that Eddie is getting his own solo “Stranger Things” novel.

Stranger Things: Flight of Icarus will be a prequel to Season 4, EW reveals today.

The website has also revealed the upcoming book’s cover art, seen below.

Written by Caitlin Schneiderhan, Stranger Things: Flight of Icarus is “set in 1984, two years before the events of Stranger Things season 4. Tthe story follows Eddie as he meets a record producer named Paige, who gives the Hellfire Club leader the chance to achieve his musical dreams with his band Corroded Coffin.

“He just needs money, which gets him entangled in his dad’s latest shady scheme.”

Here’s the full synopsis for the prequel novel…

Hawkins, Indiana — for most, it’s simply another idyllic, manicured all-American town. But for Eddie Munson it’s like living in a perpetual Tomb of Horrors. Luckily, he only has a few more months to survive at Hawkins High. And what is senior year, really, but just killing time between Dungeons & Dragons sessions with the Hellfire Club and gigs with his band?

It’s at the worst dive bar in town that Eddie meets Paige, someone who has pulled off a freaking miracle. She escaped Hawkins and built a wickedly cool life for herself working for a record producer out in Los Angeles. Not only is she the definition of a badass — with a killer taste in music — she might be the only person that actually appreciates him as the bard he is instead of the devil incarnate. But the best thing? She’s offering a chance for him to make something of himself, and all he needs is to get her a demo tape of Corroded Coffin’s best songs.

Just one problem: Recording costs money. Money Eddie doesn’t have. But he’s willing to do whatever it takes: even if that means relying on his old man, Al Munson. His dad just stumbled back into his life, with another dubious scheme up his sleeve, and yet Eddie knows this is his only option to make enough dough in enough time. It’s a risk, but if it pays off he will finally have a one-way ticket out of Hawkins.

Eddie can feel it: 1984 is going to be his year.

Stranger Things: Flight of Icarus will release on October 31, 2023.
