“Welcome to Night Vale” by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor: Fiction Book Review

A friendly desert community where the sun is always screaming, the sky is full of strange arrows and patterns, and next door to a desert otherworld which holds the absolutely terrible Desert Bluffs and their monstrous radio host, Kevin.
