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.

Mostly Void, Partially Stars introduces us to Night Vale, a town in the American Southwest where every conspiracy theory is true, and to the strange but friendly people who live there.

Mostly Void, Partially Stars features an introduction by creator and co-writer Joseph Fink, behind-the-scenes commentary and guest introductions by performers from the podcast and notable fans, including Cecil Baldwin (Cecil), Dylan Marron (Carlos), and Kevin R. Free (Kevin) among others. Also included is the full script from the first Welcome to Night Vale live show, Condos. Beautiful illustrations by series artist Jessica Hayworth accompany each episode.

Mostly Void, Partially Stars is an absolute must-have whether you’re a fan of the podcast or discovering for the first time the wonderful world of Night Vale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent I own both volumes, religiously follow the podcast, and definitely recommend. The illustrations are a nice touch that does not take away from the eeriness by adding a visual aspect, but actually compliments it. This was well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully and weirdly delightful! As someone who picked it up not knowing what I was getting into (I had not heard of or listened to the podcasts yet), it was a bit hard to get into. However, finishing the first episode was all it took to get sucked in. After that, I couldn't put this book down! Also great to read/have if you're a fan of the podcasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful. Reading this was awesome. The commentary was excellent and gave good and really funny insight into the creation of and running of the podcast and the illustrations are fantastic. The only thing is, I'm glad I listened to the podcast before reading the episodes - it's hard to imagine reading this and not having Cecil's voice narrating it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immersive I lost myself in this book and found someone unlike me, but very familiar. A good read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightfully Sureal As a long time listener of the podcast I greatly enjoyed going back to the beginning with this script collection. Jessica Hayworth's illustrations are incredible and I greatly enjoyed the episode notes from the cast and creators. The transcripts would also make a great starting place for a new-comer to Night Vale who is just getting acquainted with this bizarre town and the soothing voice on the radio.
