Praise for Welcome to Night ValeThis is the novel of your dreams. . . . A friendly (but terrifying) and comic (but dark) and glittering (but bleak) story of misfit family life that unfolds along the side streets, back alleys, and spring-loaded trapdoors of the small town home you ll realize you ve always missed living in. Glen David Gold, author of Carter Beats the Devil and SunnysideThose of us who have gotten to know Night Vale through Cecil Palmer s biweekly radio broadcasts can finally see what it s like to actually live there. It is as weird and surreal as I hoped it would be, and a surprisingly existential meditation on the nature of time, reality, and the Glow Cloud that watches over us. Wil WheatonTake Conan s Hyboria, teleport it to the American Southwest, dress all the warriors in business casual and hide their swords under the floorboards that s Night Vale: absurd, magical, wholly engrossing, and always harboring some hidden menace. John Darnielle, author of Wolf in White VanI ve been a fan of Welcome to Night Vale for years, and in that time writers Jeffrey Cranor and Joseph Fink have delighted me with stories that are clever, twisted, beautiful, strange, wonderful, and sweet. This book does all of that and so much more. It s even better than I d hoped. I think this might be the best book I ve read in years. Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the WindThis small town full of hooded figures, glowing clouds, cryptically terrifying public policies, and flickering realities quickly feels more like home than home. . . . There is nothing like Night Vale, in the best possible way. Maureen Johnson, author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes and The Name of the StarThey ve done the unthinkable: merged the high weirdness and intense drama of Night Vale to the pages of a novel that is even weirder, even more intense than the podcast. Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and coeditor of Boing Boing"
