The ten thousand things and the one true only.

by Kip Manley

Table of Contents

Vols. 1 and 2.

Bookslut calls it an “entire, swirling, beautiful mess.” The Web Fiction Guide says it’s “utterly captivating” and “brilliant.” Felix Gilman has said, “Kip Manley’s City of Roses is the most fun I’ve had with a book in a good while,” and Aishwarya Subramanian says, “If I could illegally download City of Roses I would.” Now the first 22 chapters of the acclaimed webserial have been bundled together in two convenient volumes, in ebook and paperback formats.

City of Roses is a serialized epic firmly set in Portland, Oregon—an urban fantasy mixing magical realism with gonzo noirish prose, where ancient sea-gods retire to close-in apartments with lovely views, and the Duke of Southeast throws wild parties in the Masonic Temple on Hawthorne Avenue. —It’s the story of Jo Maguire, a highly strung, underemployed telemarketer, and what happens when she meets Ysabel, a princess of unspecified pedigree. Jo rather unexpectedly becomes Ysabel’s guardian and caretaker, and now must make a place for herself among Ysabel’s decidedly unusual family and friends—which involves rather more sword-play than most of us are used to.
