A new page-turning mystery about science, faith, love and belonging, set in a friendly desert community where ghosts, angels, aliens, and government conspiracies are commonplace parts of everyday life. Welcome to Night Vale…

“Brilliant, hilarious, and wondrously strange. I’m packing up and moving to Night Vale! –Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

 

From the authors of the New York Times bestselling novelWelcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international podcast of the same name, comes a mystery exploring the intersections of faith and science, the growing relationship between two young people who want desperately to trust each other, and the terrifying, toothy power of the Smiling God.

Nilanjana Sikdar is an outsider to the town of Night Vale. Working for Carlos, the town’s top scientist, she relies on fact and logic as her guiding principles. But all of that is put into question when Carlos gives her a special assignment investigating a mysterious rumbling in the desert wasteland outside of town. This investigation leads her to the Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God, and to Darryl, one of its most committed members. Caught between her beliefs in the ultimate power of science and her growing attraction to Darryl, she begins to suspect the Congregation is planning a ritual that could threaten the lives of everyone in town. Nilanjana and Darryl must search for common ground between their very different world views as they are faced with the Congregation’s darkest and most terrible secret.

Editorial Reviews

“If art exists to make the stone stony, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor exist to ask how the stone got there, and why is it shaped like a crocodile, and what strange and creeping threat will it eventually be used to smash.”

– Patricia Lockwoood, author of Priestdaddy

“Will be a delight for fans but also features a funny but nuanced story about the chasm between faith and science. . . A confident supernatural comedy from writers who can turn from laughter to tears on a dime.”

– Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Fans will find it refreshing to see Night Vale from different perspectives . . . but knowledge of the podcast isn’t required to follow the story. This unusual experiment in format-shifting works surprisingly well.”

– Publishers Weekly
