In early March, the folks behind the popular podcast Welcome to Night Vale announced that they would be releasing another book. This was teased back in January 2016.
It's a book you can really sink your teeth into. Gnash through its heartfelt characters. Eat that book. Chew that lush prose. Eat it.

The team already has one fiction book, Welcome to Night Vale, which hit #4 on The New York Times Best Seller list. They also have available two books that consist of episode scripts and extra goodies about the making of the podcast.
It Devours! looks to be another foray into the fictional side of the world of Night Vale. According to their website, it’s “a 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.”
The podcast, which passed 100 episodes last December with a special episode, is still going on strong, and the team is currently touring another live show, “All Hail”. They’ve also been busy with the other podcasts on their network, with Alice Isn’t Dead just starting the second chapter.
It Devours! goes on sale October 17 in hardcover, ebook, CD, and audio, and is currently available for pre-order on their website.
