io9 Book Club for September: The Shambling Guide to NYC!

I just found out that The Shambling Guide to New York City will be the io9 book club pick for September! I’m utterly thrilled about this, and if you haven’t gotten your copy yet, I encourage you to support my local indie book store, Chapel Hill Comics and get a signed copy!

Read io9’s review here.

The hero of Mur Lafferty’s Shambling Guide to New York doesn’t wear tight pants, tote a crossbow, or have the most special power ever. She doesn’t fall in love with any magical creatures, or have everybody smitten with her. She’s just a travel book editor trying to finish her supernatural guidebook on time, and we love her.

And the first person who can work in “counterpoint the surrealism of the underlying metaphor” into the discussion – seamlessly – will win an ARC of The Ghost Train to New Orleans

“…counterpoint the surrealism of the underlying metaphor…” Hm-hm. Death’s too good for them. ~ Vogon Captain, HHGG radio scripts Ep 2
