Book News: NIGHT VALE Spin-Off Novel in the Works

Book News

Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor’s sublime podcast WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2012, and soon they’ll take their unique brand of surreal storytelling to another medium with the release of its first spin-off novel. 

For those unfamiliar, the serialized podcast takes the form of a public radio show being broadcast from the titular town of Night Vale, a place that makes Twin Peaks look like Chipping Norton in terms of batshit crazy. Hovering cats, Glow Clouds, angels, doomed interns, The Faceless Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home, in Night Vale anything can happen. (And probably will at some point.)

If you haven’t listened to it yet, rectify that immediately by heading here and subscribing for free. As a Starburst reader we’re sure it’ll be right up your street.

Harper Perennial will release the book (of which details are currently slim on the ground) in hardcover sometime in 2015. Can a TV series be too far behind?

And now, the weather…

I've only just got round to listening to "Welcome To Night Vale" thanks to you wonderful chaps at Starburst. It's great and eases my pain during the empty void between Starburst Radio podcasts. I hope it generates every spin off imaginable.
