On a space ship far from earth, someone is murdering the crew. And the crew's newly awakened clones will have to find their killer--before he strikes again! Maria Arena awakens in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood. She has no memory of how she died. This is new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died. Maria's vat is one of seven, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it can awaken. And Maria isn't the only one to die recently...

Unlock the bold new science fiction thriller that Corey Doctorow call Mur's "breakout book"!

Reviews

"Now THIS is the urban fantasy heroine we want." ""i09" 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"" "Funny, smart, and original." ""Library Journal "on" Ghost Train to New Orleans""" "And Then There Were None meets Alien in this locked-room, SF-thriller, which grips you from the first scene in the frozen depths of space."--Mysterious Galaxy on Six Wakes "Lafferty keeps the reader guessing and throws in just enough twists and turns to keep us on the edge of our seat . . . . I loved this book and am excited to read what Lafftery has in store for us next."--Barnes & Noble Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog on Six Wakes "An exquisitely crafted puzzle box that challenges our thoughts on what it means to be human - Six Wakes is a scifi murder mystery of light speed intensity."-- New York Times bestselling author Scott Sigler on Six Wakes p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} "And Then There Were None meets Alien in this locked-room, SF-thriller, which grips you from the first scene in the frozen depths of space."--Mysterious Galaxy on Six Wakes "Engrossing and thoroughly satisfying."--BookRiot on Six Wakes "Six Wakes is [Mur Lafferty's] breakout book."--Cory Doctorow "This is a great book with so much going for it: clever structure, wonderful characters, and a fiendishly clever puzzle that you'll roll over in your mind for months after you close the covers."--BoingBoing on Six Wakes "Lafferty delivers the ultimate locked-room mystery combined with top-notch sf worldbuilding. The puzzle of who is responsible for the devastation on the ship keeps the pages turning."--Library Journal (starred review) on Six Wakes "Polished writing and a cast of characters who are emotionally on edge make this space adventure a compelling murder-mystery that takes its time revealing the details necessary for readers to rule out possible culprits. The suspense is kept at the forefront of this clever, politically charged tale."--RT Books Reviews on Six Wakes "Lafferty delivers a tense nail-biter of a story fueled by memorable characters and thoughtful worldbuilding. This space-based locked-room murder mystery explores complex technological and moral issues in a way that's certain to earn it a spot on award ballots."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Six Wakes p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 17.0px Times; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font: 14.0px Calibri; font-kerning: none} span.s2 {font-kerning: none} "Lafferty keeps the reader guessing and throws in just enough twists and turns to keep us on the edge of our seat . . . .

I wish I wrote this book."--New York Times bestselling author Chuck Wendig on Six Wakes "This is one of the cleverest and most exciting murder mysteries I have ever read. The confined space of the colony ship Dormire is filled with feisty and memorably strange characters who bounce off one another in ways that vary from the comic to the horrific. You like ideas in your science fiction? Lafferty does for clones what Asimov did for robots. Six Wakes will keep you turning pages right up to its startling climax. Mur Lafferty scores in this, her best book!"--James Patrick Kelly, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards on Six Wakes "Funny, smart, and original." Library Journal on Ghost Train to New Orleans" "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" "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" "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" "The Shambling Guide to New York City is a monstrously fun romp by one of our most engaging new authors." Tim Pratt" "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" "Now THIS is the urban fantasy heroine we want." i09 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" "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" "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" "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" "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" "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" "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" "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" "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" "This book, like its predecessor, feels inhabited and alive... Even more entertaining than the Shambling Guide." Locus on Ghost Train to New Orleans"
