Find a quiet corner—perhaps a hole, in a burned out tree. Settle in, put your fingers in your ears—no! just your fingers—and begin to hum, until your teeth rattle in your jaw, as you let the sultry tones of Cecil’s voice wash out the nameless horror of your everyday existence. (Lauren)

“Welcome to Night Vale meshes the uncanny with the mundane in a way that doesn't so much elevate the mundane as it illuminates life's strangeness. For all its weirdness, Fink and Cranor's work rings true. Like the best metaphors, the novel makes its reader think 'Wait, what?' and 'Oh. Yes!' in quick succession. New visitors to Night Vale will be as entertained and absorbed by the story and characters as longtime listeners of the duo's popular podcast. Simply delightful!”

Description


Welcome to Night Vale . . . a friendly desert community where mysterious lights pass overhead. In this ordinary little town where ghosts, angels, aliens, and government conspiracies are commonplace parts of everyday life, the lives of two women, with two mysteries, are about to converge.

Like all of Night Vale, pawn shop proprietor Jackie Fierro abides by routine. But a crack appears when a mysterious man gives her a slip of paper marked by two words: KING CITY. Everything about the man unsettles her, especially the paper that she cannot remove from her hand. Yet when Jackie searches for the man, no one who meets him can seem to remember anything about him.

Diane Crayton's fifteen-year-old son, Josh, is moody and a shape shifter. Lately, Diane has started to see the boy's father everywhere she goes, looking the same as he did the day the day he left. Josh is growing ever more curious about his estranged father--leading to a disaster Diane can see coming, but is helpless to prevent.

Propelled by two words--KING CITY--Diane's search to reconnect with her son and Jackie's search to reclaim her routine life draw them increasingly closer to one another, and to this place that may hold the key to their mysteries and their futures . . . if they can ever find it.

Performed by Cecil Baldwin & Music by Disparition

Guest Starring Dylan Marron, Retta, Therese Plummer, and Dan Bittner
