Críticas:

"This is the novel of your dreams. . . . A story of misfit family life that unfolds along the side streets, back alleys and spring-loaded trap doors of the small town home you'll realize you've always missed living in. When it says 'welcome, ' it's mandatory. You belong here."--Glen David Gold, author of "Carter Beats the Devil" and "Sunnyside"

"Brilliant, hilarious, and wondrously strange. I'm packing up and moving to Night Vale!"--Ransom Riggs, author of the #1 "New York Times" bestselling "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"

"They'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 co-editor of Boing Boing

"Emotionally compelling and superbly realized. This seductive, hilarious book unfolds at the moment when certain quiet responsible people find they must risk everything on behalf of love, hope, and understanding. Not a single person who reads this book will be disappointed."--Deb Olin Unferth, author of "Revolution" and "Vacation"

"Welcome To Night Vale" brings its eponymous desert town to to vivid life. . . . 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 Wheaton"

As a fan of "Welcome to Night Vale," 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 more. I think this might be the best book I ve read in years. --Patrick Rothfuss, author of "The Name of the Wind""

Welcome to Night Vale lives up to the podcast hype in every way. It is a singularly inventive visit to an otherworldly town that s the stuff of nightmares and daydreams. --BookPage"

Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel is easily enjoyed on its own terms - even for those who are new to the town of Night Vale - largely because the storytelling shines so brightly on the level of its individual parts. --Vox"

This is the kind of book that ll make you say ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD. Whether you re a fan of the strange and upsetting Welcome to Night Vale podcast or you re new to Night Vale and its quaint desert conspiracies, it s never a bad time to visit Night Vale. --Bustle"

Longtime listeners and newcomers alike are likely to appreciate the ways in which Night Vale, as Fink puts it, treats the absurd as normal and treats the normal as absurd. What they might not foresee is the emotional wallop the novel delivers in its climactic chapters. --Austin Chronicle"

This is a splendid, weird, moving novel It manages beautifully that trick of embracing the surreal in order to underscore and emphasize the real - not as allegory, but as affirmation of emotional truths that don t conform to the neat and tidy boxes in which we re encouraged to house them. --NPR.org"

The book is charming and absurd - think This American Life meets Alice in Wonderland. --Washington Post"

Fink and Cranor s prose hints there s an empathetic humanity underscoring their well of darkly fantastic situations. . . . the book builds toward a satisfyingly strange exploration of the strange town s intersection with an unsuspecting real world. --Los Angeles Times"

As a companion piece, Welcome to Night Vale will be hard to resist. Though the book builds toward a satisfyingly strange exploration of the strange town s intersection with an unsuspecting real world, its mysteries - like the richest conspiracy theories - don t exist to be explained. They just provide a welcome escape. --Detroit Free Press"

The charms of Welcome to Night Vale are nearly impossible to quantify. That applies to the podcast, structured as community radio dispatches from a particularly surreal desert town, as well as this novel, written by the podcast s co-creators, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor. --Minneapolis Star Tribune"

As enjoyable and eerie as the podcast --Paste Magazine"

A marvelous book.... Like the podcast, the novel is full of people we love and root for, full of frightening things, and full of dramatic tension that pays off beautifully with resolutions worthy of any great tale of traditional conflict. --boingboing.com"

A wonderfully creepy tale filled with revelations about the nature of the town and its residents. --AV Club"

Take Conan s Hyborea, 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 Van"

Brilliant, hilarious, and wondrously strange. I m packing up and moving to Night Vale! --Ransom Riggs, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"

A fantastic addition with a stand-alone tale of the mysterious desert town that also offers loyal listeners some interesting clues about the nature of the place. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Reseña del editor:

From the creators of the wildly popularWelcome to Night Valepodcast comes an imaginative mystery of appearances and disappearances that is also a poignant look at the ways in which we all struggle to find ourselves...no matter where we live.

"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."--The Guardian

Located in a nameless desert somewhere in the great American Southwest, Night Vale is a small town where ghosts, angels, aliens, and government conspiracies are all commonplace parts of everyday life. It is here that the lives of two women, with two mysteries, will converge.

Nineteen-year-old Night Vale pawn shop owner Jackie Fierro is given a paper marked "KING CITY" by a mysterious man in a tan jacket holding a deer skin suitcase. Everything about him and his paper unsettles her, especially the fact that she can't seem to get the paper to leave her hand, and that no one who meets this man can remember anything about him. Jackie is determined to uncover the mystery of King City and the man in the tan jacket before she herself unravels.

Night Vale PTA treasurer Diane Crayton's son, Josh, is moody and also a shape shifter. And lately Diane's started to see her son's father everywhere she goes, looking the same as the day he left years earlier, when they were both teenagers. Josh, looking different every time Diane sees him, shows a stronger and stronger interest in his estranged father, leading to a disaster Diane can see coming, even as she is helpless to prevent it.

Diane's search to reconnect with her son and Jackie's search for her former routine life collide as they find themselves coming back to two words: "KING CITY." It is King City that holds the key to both of their mysteries, and their futures...if they can ever find it.
