This is book number 1 in the Welcome to Night Vale Episodes series.
Have you been lost to another dimension? Has this caused you to be wary of so-called "podcasts"? Never fear! You can now experience all the terror, humor, oddity, and terror again associated with Welcome to Night Vale, in good, old-fashioned book form! It may even tempt you to tune in and listen to Cecil's bewitching voice, but don't worry, it will only partially confuse, and wholeheartedly delight, you.— From Ashley
From the authors of the New York Times bestselling novel Welcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international podcast of the same name, comes a collection of episodes from Season One of their hit podcast, featuring an introduction by the authors, behind-the-scenes commentary, and original illustrations.
In June of 2012, the creators of Welcome to Night Vale began airing twice-weekly podcasts. By the anniversary show a year later, the fanbase had exploded, vaulting the podcast into the #1 spot on iTunes. Since then, its popularity has grown by epic proportions, hitting more than 100 million downloads, and Night Vale has expanded to a successful live multi-cast international touring stage show and a New York Times bestselling novel. Now the first two seasons are available as books, offering an entertaining reading experience and a valuable reference guide to past episodes.
