Description

A new fiction serial from the creator of Welcome to Night Vale, Alice Isn’t Dead follows a truck driver in her search across America for the wife she had long assumed was dead. In the course of her search, she will encounter not-quite-human serial murderers, towns literally lost in time, and a conspiracy that goes way beyond one missing woman. New episodes every other Tuesday through July 12. Performed by Jasika Nicole. Written by Joseph Fink. Produced by Disparition. Part of the Night Vale Presents network.

Customer Reviews

If you liked Night Vale… well, here’s more.

I can imagine it’s difficult for a writer of something so viral to try and do anything different, to try and live up to that standard, or try to remove any new work from the shadow of a goliath he’s created. Unfortunately, Fink’s writing doesn’t give “Alice” much opportunity to do so.

I’m a big fan of Night Vale, so of course I assumed I would enjoy this podcast. But here’s the thing: when I heard we were getting something new and different from the Night Vale team, I expected to get something new and different. But, so far (as of episode one, so I still have hope that this could change) it just feels like Night Vale. Yes it’s a different story, unsettling and interesting (I have more questions about the Thistle Man than I do about Alice), but the words feel to be lifted right from a Night Vale transcript. With its roundabout and complex analogies and its discussion of nonexistence and humanity’s insignificance, it’s more of what we’ve already heard from Joseph Fink. And that’s the downfall of it. It doesn’t sound like Fink is catering to an audience who expects the American Gothic, purple-prose-style writing that Night Vale is so famously known for, but rather that Fink simply can’t write anything else. You can tell that he’s trying, but as of episode one our narrator’s words strike me as no different than those of a certain Mayor of Night Vale.

Don’t get me wrong, Jasika Nicole’s acting is wonderful and Disparition’s score is excellent, but the writing makes it difficult to imagine we’re listening to anything other than another chapter in the Night Vale universe.

Unrestrained creepy

Nightvale gets its humor from a facade of normalcy over a world of creepy. It's hard to imagine living life normally of all the things that go bump in the night were real, and that tension is what makes that podcast.

Alice strips away that facade and drives right into the creepy depths.

I don't know if the truck driver is actually seeing all these horrors, or if it's all just a schizophrenic fantasy, but I think that tension, combined with the tension of the open road, is what's going to make this podcast

Alice should die.

Let me breakdown Alice isn't dead for you. It opens with an ad and a riddle. Followed by 9-10 minutes of fantastic storytelling followed by 11 more minutes of ads. Then finishes with the answer to the riddle (which is also an ad) then 4 minutes of music and finally the last 7 minutes is cut off. If you like this sort of thing then by all means please download.
