THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY is a high-concept, high-comedy romp through the supernatural underworld. It's like nothing you've ever read before - and that's a good thing.
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.
If Buffy grew up, got therapy and found a real job, it would look like this.
Without Mur Lafferty, the SF genre would be a much duller place.
An extremely exciting and incredibly amusing read
Well-written and immersive . . . a travel series you'll definitely want to stick with
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.
Lafferty's novel has wit, style and plenty of sardonic dialogue, like Douglas Adams writing an episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
