Welcome to Night Vale
by Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor

This light, fun novel is a spin-off of the popular podcast of the same name. The plot revolves around 19 year old pawnshop owner Jackie, office worker Diane Crayton, Diane's teenaged son Josh, and their involvement in the mystery surrounding slips of paper with the words King City written on them. But the plot is actually kind of thin and isn't really the point of the book anyway.
The point is an exploration of Night Vale and its denizens. Night Vale is a pretty typical town in the American southwest, if your idea of normal includes lovecraftian horror, shadowy government agencies, strange conspiracies, time not working quite right, a variety of monsters, mysterious glowing clouds, ghosts, angels, and aliens. It's a really fun place to read about.
(Also, you do not have to have listened to the podcast to enjoy the book. I had only listened to a couple of episodes, and had no trouble following any of it.)
