Welcome to Night Vale - it sounds so intriguing. Why thank you, I'd love to visit. Well be warned! Those who visit Night Vale are forever changed.
Are you familiar with the podcast from the brilliant minds of Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor? The Guardian says it is “Hypnotic and darkly funny. . . . Belongs to a particular strain of American gothic that encompasses The Twilight Zone, Stephen King and Twin Peaks, with a bit of Tremors thrown in," so you know you can expect something magical!
Well, this novel, Welcome to Night Vale, is great for fans of the podcast as well as newbies to the town. It is a mystery involving appearances and disappearances that is also a poignant look at the ways in which we all struggle to figure out who we are.
Joseph and Jeffrey are coming to ALA so I suggest you listen to the podcasts and get yourself an egalley so you can be fully indoctrinated into the fascinating and imaginative world!
