What kind of bid is the Night Vale Worldcon bid?
TO CONTACT THE BID: SPEAK QUIETLY INTO YOUR PILLOW AT MIDNIGHT IN A LANGUAGE LONG SINCE DEAD
The bid takes its inspiration from “Welcome to Night Vale”, the most popular podcast on the internet, which is formatted as community updates for the small desert town of Night Vale, featuring local weather, news, announcements from the Sheriff’s Secret Police, mysterious lights in the night sky, dark hooded figures with unknowable powers, and cultural events.
They launched with a party at Arisia in Boston last night. Don’t you wish you’d been there?
