It all started in June 2012 as a bestselling podcast created by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, a radio show sensation for the fictional town of Night Vale that reported on the strange events that occur within it. Narrated by Cecil Palmer, the host of the towns radio show, Welcome to Night Vale covers news, announcements, and advertisements just like Lake Wobegon on Prairie Home Companion. . . Except its a lot weirder. A lot. Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel hit the New York
Times bestseller list at #4. The authors appeared live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, were featured in a prominent New York Times profile, and the book received and continues to
receive major media attention and praise.
Since then, the Welcome to Night Vale podcast has been downloaded more than 150 million times worldwide. Night Vale has also become a successful touring live show, performing to sellout 1000 + seat venues in front of audiences at over 200 live shows in 16 countries and 35 US states. In January 2016, the authors announced their new podcast network Night Vale Presents which has launched the fictional podcasts Alice Isnt Dead (March 2016.), Within the Wires (June 2016), and The Orbiting Human Circus of the Air (October 2016).
ABOUT IT DEVOURS!:
Nilanjana Sikdar is an outsider to the town of Night Vale. Working for Carlos, the towns 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 Congregations darkest and most terrible secret. A page-turning 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, It Devours! will entertain both fans of Welcome to Night Vale and those discovering its extraordinary world for the first time.
