The Great Glowing Coils of the Universe: Welcome to Night Vale Episodes, Volume 2 Cover Image
ISBN: 9780062468635
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Harper Perennial - September 6th, 2016

Mostly Void, Partially Stars and The Great Glowing Coils of the Universe are the first two volumes of the Welcome to Night Vale script books. Whether you’re a long time listener, or you’ve never heard of Night Vale at all, this is the place to start. Each volume contains a year’s worth of podcast episodes, illustrations by “our favorite weird artist” Jessica Hayworth, and behind the scenes introductions by the extraordinary creators Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor. Night Vale is a quiet desert community where conspiracy theories are always true, and all us residents can do is tune in to the Community Radio and hope for the best. In these volumes, you’ll learn about the forbidden dog park, Old Woman Josie and the angels, a foreboding glowing cloud (ALL HAIL), and a budding romance between our subversive radio host and that new scientist with his perfect hair. – Gary
