cover for Mur Lafferty's The Shambling Guide to New York City. A woman with curly brown hair walks down a New York City street, looking thoughtfully at the notepad she's writing on. Behind her are the usual pedestrians, cars, and buildings, but also a man with a tail, a goblin eating out of the trash, and a dragon perched on the Empire State Building.Congratulations to Mur Lafferty on the nomination of THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY for the 2014 Manly Wade Wellman Award for North Carolina Science Fiction and Fantasy!

Because of the disaster that was her last job, Zoe is searching for a fresh start as a travel book editor in the tourist-centric New York City. After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position though, Zoe is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can’t take off her resume — human.

Not to be put off by anything — especially not her blood drinking boss or death goddess coworker — Zoe delves deep into the monster world. But her job turns deadly when the careful balance between human and monsters starts to crumble — with Zoe right in the middle.
