Great read for fans of the podcast, or of the weird in general
I love the podcast and wasn't sure how well it would transfer to novel format, but they've done a great job! The signature surreal humour is unchanged, but... READ MORE

Synopsis

You are leaving this story now. You were only an example and it is probably safer for you not to be in this story anyway. WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE ... … a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while its citizens pretend to sleep. It's a town like your town, with a city hall, a bowling alley, a diner, and a radio station reporting all the news that's allowed to be heard. It might even be more like your town than you'd like to admit. Yet in this ordinary town where ghosts, aliens and government conspiracies are parts of everyday life, time has no meaning, there is something not quite right, like a pawnshop where the price may be more than money – it may be visions, or dreams, it may be something even more valuable. In this town, like and yet not like many others, the lives of two women, with two mysteries, are about to converge. Originally conceived as a podcast, the Welcome to Night Vale transmission still airs twice monthly from www.welcometonightvale.com. In the style of community radio, it features weather reports, news items, unusual sightings and reports of extra-terrestrial activity, a broadcast The LA Times describes as ‘"A Prairie Home Companion" filtered through the anarchic paranoia of Art Bell's "Coast to Coast AM" with a generous helping of David Lynch.’ Now from the creators of the wildly popular Welcome to Night Vale podcast comes an original mystery of appearances and disappearances, a story about the ways we all struggle to find ourselves, no matter where we live. ‘The book is charming and absurd’ — The Washington Post
