Publisher's Summary

Could you find a museum for a monster? Or a jazz bar for a jabberwock?

Zoe Norris writes travel guides for the undead. And she's good at it too - her newfound ability to talk to cities seems to help. After the success of The Sbambling Guide to New York City, Zoe and her team are sent to New Orleans to write the sequel.

Work isn't all that brings Zoe to the Big Easy. The only person who can save her boyfriend from zombism is rumored to live in the city's swamps, but Zoe's out of her element in the wilderness. With her supernatural colleagues waiting to see her fail, and rumors of a new threat hunting city talkers, can Zoe stay alive long enough to finish her next book?

What the Critics Say

"Shows exactly why so many writers have been buzzing about Mur Lafferty for so many years: an unbeatable mixture of humor, heart, imagination, and characterization. I want to live in Mur's New York.""A wild ride through the secret side of New York City, Mur Lafferty's mighty debut is urban fantasy the way it should be: fast, funny, with bags of action and characters you'll love. A total delight from cover to cover.""Mur Lafferty is a bright, shining light in speculative fiction. She brings a warm, humourous and startling fresh voice to the genre in The Shambling Guide to New York City."Now THIS is the urban fantasy heroine we want."Without Mur Lafferty, the SF genre would be a much duller place. Mur is constantly inventive, always great fun and deserves every success."An engagingly funny, and fun, romp through NYC. You'll love Zoe... to bitsMur Lafferty's debut novel is a must-read book for those who like their urban fantasy fast, furious, and funny. Terrific stuff!"Zombies and vampires and golems, oh my! The Shambling Guide to New York City rounds up the biggest cast of the undead and never-quite-alive ever to appear in a single novel, along with a wisecracking heroine whose picture belongs over the dictionary entry for spunky. This is a comic tour-de-force by a writer who lives and breathes popular culture. Mur Lafferty is throwing a monster party and you're invited.""Lafferty's writing has an easy style that draws the reader in... She manages to shape the well-worked clay in entertaining new ways."This is a great start to what promises to be one of the gems of the comic urban fantasy crown. The Shambling Guide sets the wonderful world of the supernatural--and the slightly more esoteric world of travel guide publishing--on its ear, and the result is nothing short of delightful."The Shambling Guide to New York City is a monstrously fun romp by one of our most engaging new authors."Wit, style and plenty of sardonic dialogue, like Douglas Adams writing an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer."Looking for a very different kind of travel guide? One that shows you the real Manhattan? The one the tourists haven't discovered yet, but the vampires and the watersprites have? Then The Shambling Guide to New York City is just what you need!

With really interesting restaurant recs and sightseeing suggestions, and unusual (to say the least) takes on the Statue of Liberty and Grant's Tomb, it's got everything you need to know for the trip of a lifetime--or longer! And with the smart and intrepid Zoe to show you around, how could you possibly get in trouble? I give it 5 Michelin stars and 8 Zombie Planet Thumbs Up (with real thumbs)!"Well-written and immersive...a travel series you'll definitely want to stick with.If Buffy grew up, got therapy and found a real job, it would look like this.

    Really liked the book. Mur Lafferty is always enjoyable and a good narrator. I thought the first book in the series was a little bit better. Looking forward to seeing the next.

    "Good story"

    I enjoyed the story and the concept. But the author shouldn't read it. Not enough change in the characters from her voice. The author can be a bit monotonous
