Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book, like its predecessor, feels inhabited and alive... Even more entertaining than the Shambling Guide."―Locus on Ghost Train to New Orleans

"Lafferty's writing has an easy style that draws the reader in... She manages to shape the well-worked clay in entertaining new ways."―Publishers Weekly on The Ghost Train to New Orleans

"Mur Lafferty's debut novel is a must-read book for those who like their urban fantasy fast, furious, and funny. Terrific stuff!"―Kat Richardson on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"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."―New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire

"An engagingly funny, and fun, romp through NYC. You'll love Zoe... to bits."―New York Times bestselling Tobias S. Buckell on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"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."―Cory Doctorow on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"Without Mur Lafferty, the SF genre would be a much duller place. Mur is constantly inventive, always great fun and deserves every success."―Paul Cornell on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"Wit, style and plenty of sardonic dialogue, like Douglas Adams writing an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer."―Financial Times on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"If Buffy grew up, got therapy and found a real job, it would look like this."―Scott Sigler on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"Well-written and immersive...a travel series you'll definitely want to stick with."―SFX on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"Now THIS is the urban fantasy heroine we want."―i09 on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"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."―Adam Christopher on The Shambling Guide to New York City

"The Shambling Guide to New York City is a monstrously fun romp by one of our most engaging new authors."―Tim Pratt

"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."―James Patrick Kelly, Hugo and Nebula Award Winner

"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."―Kaaron Warren

"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)!"―Connie Willis

"Funny, smart, and original."―Library Journal on Ghost Train to New Orleans
