Reviews

Clever, twisted, beautiful, strange, wonderful and sweet . . . this might be the best book I've read in years
Patrick Rothfuss on WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE
A marvellous book . . . full of people we love and root for, full of frightening things, and full of dramatic tension that pays off beautifully . . . shot through it all is the love and integrity that made Night Vale a success from the beginning
BOING BOING on WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE
I'm packing up and moving to Night Vale!
Ransom Riggs
A splendid, weird, moving novel . . . it manages beautifully that trick of embracing the surreal in order to underscore and emphasise the real
NPR on WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE
Eerie, enchanting . . . With this tightly plotted adventure, Fink and Cranor successfully expand their universe beyond Night Vale's desert setting.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
A cinematic tale full of endless twists . . . a unique horror story with a rare swashbuckling and complex female protagonist I couldn't get enough of . . . Just when you think you know what's happening, the Faceless Old Woman will flip you around and make you question morality with a delicious, fun, well-crafted frustration
Gaby Dunn, NEW YORK TIMES
A chilling ghost story . . . A decades long, globe-spanning saga of adventure, betrayal, love, and fate [about] one of Welcome to Night Vale's most enigmatic and terrifying characters . . . How these stories converge and how the narrator becomes immortal are merciless in their ingenuity and immensely satisfying . . . A funny. terrifying. and unpredictable slice of Night Vale's macabre history
