Description


From the authors of the New York Times bestselling novels It Devours! and Welcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international podcast of the same name, comes a collection of episodes from Season Three of their hit podcast, featuring an introduction by the authors, a foreword by Dessa, behind-the-scenes commentary, and original illustrations.

In June of 2012, the creators of Welcome to Night Vale began airing twice-monthly podcasts, hoping to be heard by anyone outside their close circles. They never had any idea just how much the podcast would take off, and by the anniversary show a year later, the fanbase had wildly 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 two New York Times bestselling novels (Welcome to Night Vale and It Devours!), and a new podcast network Night Vale Presents. Now the second two seasons are available as books, offering a valuable reference guide to past episodes. 

The Buying of Lot 37 brings Season Three of the podcast to book form. With foreword by recording artist and author Dessa, introductions by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, insightful behind-the-scenes commentary by cast members and supporters, and beautiful illustrations by series artist Jessica Hayworth accompanying each episode, this book is both an entertaining reading experience and an absolute must-have for any fan of the podcast.

Praise For…


Praise for It Devours! It Devours! is different from other mystery novels. It is as captivating and light as any mystery novel can be but explores one of the most complex issues: the conflict between science and reason on the one hand and, on the other hand, religion and cult.”


Washington Book Review

“[A] smart exploration of the divide—and overlap—of science and religion. . ..  a thrilling adventure and a fascinating argument that science and belief aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.”

Praise for Welcome to Night Vale: “This is a splendid, weird, moving novel…It manages beautifully that trick of embracing the surreal in order to underscore and emphasize the real - not as allegory, but as affirmation of emotional truths that don’t conform to the neat and tidy boxes in which we’re encouraged to house them.”
Los Angeles Times

“Welcome to Night Vale lives up to the podcast hype in every way. It is a singularly inventive visit to an otherworldly town that’s the stuff of nightmares and daydreams.”
BookPage

“If you like your stories creepy and soothing at the same time, you’ll love Welcome to Night Vale.”
— Mashable

“Defining its own corner of the dark comedy universe since it started in 2012, Welcome to Night Vale is a peek into the goings-on of a typical American small town if that burg had been co-conceived by H.P. Lovecraft, Philip K. Dick, Ayn Rand, and whomever else would come up with a dystopian present.”
— Vulture

Welcome to Night Vale is a bit like Twin Peaks if it were a podcast — with menacing glow clouds and monstrous mayors.”
— Digital Trends

“Each episode acts as a news broadcast of sorts from a small desert town named Night Vale, and they’re more horror/dark humor than sci-fi, really. The broadcasts are spooky, absurd, and, well, funny. That’s a hard tightrope to walk.”
— Mashable
