Mostly Void, Partially Stars: Welcome to Night Vale Episodes | Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor
100 posts | 41 read | 3 reading | 45 to read
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.

I read the tidbits for each episode in the book after listening to them on Spotify. I only recently discovered this podcast and I‘m in love! I can‘t wait to keep going with the second book/audio combination.

Jojen wanted to pose for you all 🐱

TheBookbabeblog84 There is a novel by Joseph Fink as well “Welcome to Nightvale”; You might like it if you love the show. I struggled with the book. 2mo
collegecatlady @TheBookbabeblog84 I have that one and It Devours and I‘m definitely going to read them when I start catching up to the current episodes of the podcast 2mo

"And now, a brief public service announcement: alligators. Can they kill your children? Yes."

ohyeahthatgirl I love listening to this show, but reading it might have been even more my jam. And the new ones come out very soon! 4mo
RebelGrrrl I love reading it because I can process things slightly better and it already feels like the words are sticking more than they do when I listen, but I have to admit, Cecil makes this show what it is. His voice is everything and as a result it's a little weird to be reading rather than listening lol 4mo

Today I decided to finally get back to reading the first Night Vale script book and listening to Good Morning Night Vale. I like how I can experience the story again but in a slightly different way than before! #welcometonightvale #currentlyreading #lazymorning

This book collects the scripts of the first 25 episodes of Nightvale. Each chapter begins with a very brief introduction giving a little background in the writing if the chapter or something similar. Fun to revisit if you haven‘t listened to the early episodes in a while. Also a very quick read.

"PROVERB: What has four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three legs in the evening? I don‘t know, but I trapped it in my bedroom. Send help."

quote
morevna

"And listeners: Night Vale is an ancient place, full of history and secrets, as we were reminded today. But it is also a place of the present moment, full of life, and of us. If you can hear my voice, speaking live, then you know: We are not history yet. We are happening now. How miraculous is that? Goodnight, listeners. Goodnight."

quote
morevna

"We did not back down. We stood eye to eye with violence and it blinked first. Stand proud, Night Vale. Be afraid on the inside, of course. You are, after all, your own downfall. But stand proud against those predators that would harm your family."

quote
morevna

"Dear listeners, stay tuned next for a live broadcast of a man locked in a recording booth, silently staring at the microphone with intense suspicion. And, as always, since always, and for always: Goodnight, Night Vale. Goodnight."

I haven‘t actually listened to Night Vale in a very long time but I‘m revisiting my 2013 self‘s deep love for the podcast by reading the first script book 💜

I just do not believe violence is ever the answer. (It is a question. The real answer is far more terrifying.)

Oh yeah! I already read a book that works for #litsyAtoZ #letterF! These compilations of the first two seasons of Welcome to Night Vale podcast episodes (with commentary before EACH ONE) are amazing. You can't beat listening to the podcast, but this is a great way to catch another layer of understanding and get genius background info on the podcast, process, and people. A million stars to these wonderful weirdos. #recommendsday

This was so great! I love reading the episodes rather than listening to the podcast. For some reason, I just can't pay attention to audio books or podcasts, so this format is much better for me. If you have the same issue and you want to see what Welcome to Nightvale is all about, then I highly recommend this book. If you're already a fan, then this is a great way to revisit the older episodes.

Got in another argument with my mother over politics (I will not start, but let me just say she needs to get out of her own head more because the voices in it seem to be the only ones she is listening to) so I bought myself this pretty. I am definitely considering a welcome to Nightvale tattoo for my 27th bday

This last paragraph from Cecil about the live show just speaks to me in ways that Nightvale has always spoken to me. ---------- My mother died last week and I was just now able to be in my home with my cats and boy and feel things I needed to feel. And this observation just blew me away.

Leniverse My condolences. 3y
Brenley @Leniverse thank you. It was sudden and I've just now been able to stop and reflect. 3y

Sometimes the best/only therapy is laughter.

Leniverse You're reading the episodes? I don't know... It wouldn't be the same without Cecil's voice in my ear. He has a great radio voice. Actually, reading the excerpt I can hear his voice in my mind, so that kinda works. 3y
Brenley @Leniverse yeah I've listened to most of the beginning episodes multiple times so I can hear Cecil's voice most of the time. I really like the intros by Fink and Cranor at the beginning of each episode in here. It's cool to here some behind the scenes writer stuff. 3y
Leniverse Aha, the book provides extras! Ok, yes, that's a hook. Lol 3y

As I finish my final book of the year, I can't help but look a head to 2017. Clearly I haven't been paying attention to my growing TBR pile! Oh well 😂 #BookwormProblems

Reading this book is almost as much fun as listening to the podcasts. Only downfall is not having Cecil Baldwin's deep velvety smooth voice in my ear.

Wonder if reading the text will be way different than listening? Had to bail...with my reading time so limited and having listened to all of these before, time to move on...

If I'm looking for #horror, NightVale is my go to! #ScaryRead #AllHallowsRead it's not outright scary (except for intelligent spiders and man eating librarians), but the imagery stays with you for a long time.

I'm finding three-year-old episodes of Welcome to Night Vale eerily prescient on the topic of politics.

I'm a big fan of Welcome to Night Vale and I was so excited to get the scripts and they don't disappoint! I really loved the intros to each episode and gaining a little bit of insight into the script writers and voice actors thoughts and inspirations. I hope they do more of these later!
