Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce that as part of our 10th/35th Anniversary Festivities, we will host a release party for Mur Lafferty’s new book, The Shambling Guide to New York City! The event will be from 7pm until 9pm on Saturday, June 1. What’s the book about? Here you go:
A travel writer takes a job with a shady publishing company in New York, only to find that she must write a guide to the city – for the undead!
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.
We’ll have copies of the book on hand, and we’d love you to come down and meet the author! This is a prose novel, not a comic, though it does sport a fantastic cover by noted comic artist Jamie McKelvie!
Plus, check it out: the book is already getting good reviews! Publisher’s Weekly listed The Shambling Guide as one of the best summer books of 2013!
Mur Lafferty is an author and podcaster based in Durham, NC. She is the host of the I Should Be Writing podcast and a two time John W. Campbell Award nominee.
