Welcome to Night Vale

Based on the of (in)famous podcast of the same name, Welcome to Night Vale is set in the little desert town of Night Vale. A place that, on the surface, is just like any other small town you might come across, with a friendly, tight-knit community, quaint mom-and-pop stores, and mysterious plastic lawn flamingoes that cause you to relive every moment of your life from the moment of your birth until the end of time itself…. Oh, wait…

In a vein reminiscent of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, Welcome to Night Vale is a fast-paced romp which casually enters the world of the ridiculous, but with such a matter-of-fact delivery that will leave your head spinning if you aren't paying attention. It's a genuinely enjoyable read, not in spite of this, but because of this. It's wild. And this absolutely disorienting weirdness can really cook up some scares. Whether or not you're familiar with the podcast that spawned this novel, this is sure to be a delightfully spooky read.
