""The book is charming and absurd - think "This American Life" meets "Alice in Wonderland."--Washington Post
"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
"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
"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
"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
"Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel masterfully brings the darkly hilarious, touching and creepy world of the podcast into the realm of ink and paper."--Asbury Park Press
"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
"All hail the glow cloud as the weird and wonderful town of Night Vale brings itself to fine literature. . . . 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)
"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
"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
"Co-creators of the popular Welcome to Night Vale podcast, successfully expand the mythology of their strange desert town. Fans will find it refreshing to see Night Vale from different perspectives . . . but knowledge of the podcast isn't required to follow the story."--Publishers Weekly
"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
"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
"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
"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
"This 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 Star
