There is great fun to be had in chasing a topic or setting across formats: getting into a TV show and then delving more into that world with a novel that explores a similar storyline, or vice versa. From hackers to courtroom drama to Jack the Ripper, here are a few ideas to get you started. (more)

Elliot: I'm gonna be normal now. Maybe Shayla could even be my girlfriend. I'll go see those stupid Marvel movies with her. I'll join a gym. I'll heart things on Instagram. I'll drink vanilla lattes.
Elliot, voice-over: There's a saying. The devil's at his strongest while we're looking the other way, like a program running in the background silently, while we're busy doing other shit. Daemons, they call them. They perform action without user interaction. Monitoring, logging, notifications. Primal urges, repressed
memories, unconscious habits. They're always there, always active. We can try to be right, we can try to be good. We can try to make a difference, but it's all bullshit. 'Cause intentions are irrelevant. They don't drive us. Daemons do. And me? I've got more than most. ... Daemons... they don't stop working. They're always active. They seduce. They manipulate. They own us. And even though you're with me even though I created you, it makes no difference. We all must deal with them alone. The best we can hope for... the only silver lining in all of this... is that when we break through, we find a few familiar faces waiting on the other side.
Whiterose: Oh, 60 seconds and this meeting will be over.
Whiterose: The concept of waiting bewilders me. There are always deadlines. There are always ticking clocks. That's why you must manage your time.
Elliot: I'll find a way to remove the honeypot.
Whiterose: Until 16 seconds ago, you were not aware there was a honeypot. This does not inspire confidence.
Whiterose: There's that word again.
Elliot: We'll take care of it. You know you could have told us about the honeypot weeks ago.
Whiterose: Every hacker has her fixation. You hack people, I hack time. So you should know that when I set a time line, there's a reason.
Angela: It's just that...well, I can't help but wonder, why do you seem so confident? Everyone else is worried, but you? You're sure that you're gonna get through this. Why?
Price: Hmm. People did this. Right? I mean, aliens didn't invade our planet. Zeus didn't come out of the
heavens to destroy us. Zombies haven't risen from the dead. No. Whoever's behind this, they're just people... like you and me. Except, of course, I have the full weight of the biggest conglomerate in the world behind me. You'll come to realize that when you have that, matters like this, they tend to crack... under that weight.
Price: Angela, just a word of advice. Don't talk your way out of a compliment.
Krista: What is it about society that disappoints you so much?
Elliot: Oh, I don't know. Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, when when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it's that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit. the world itself js just a big hoax. Spamming with our running commentary of bullshit masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I'm not saying anything new. We all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books make us happy but because we wanna be sedated. Because it's painful not to pretend, because we're cowards.
Elliot: What I'm about to tell you is top secret. There's a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I'm talking about the guys, no one knows about the guys who are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%. The guys that play God without permission. And now I think they're following me.
Tyrell: Give a man a gun and he can rob a Bank. Give a man a Bank and he can rob the world.
Tyrell: Well, now it's you and me. ... I have to know. Why did you do it? What did you hope to accomplish by doing all of this?
Elliot: I don't know. ... I wanted to save the world.
Mr. Robot: The world is a dangerous place, Elliott, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
