City Of Roses 2nd Season Of Stories Reading & Signing With Kip Manley says
Join us to celebrate the 2nd season of City of Roses with Kip Manley! City of Roses, firmly set in Portland, is an urban fantasy epic that mixes magical realism with noirish prose, where ancient sea-gods retire to close-in apartments, and union meetings are besieged by ghost bicycles. It's the story of Jo Maguire, an underemployed telemarketer, and what happens when she meets Ysabel, the Princess of the Court of Roses.

The Guardian says "City of Roses is an absorbing read that many fantasy fans will enjoy immensely," and Bookslut has called it an "entire beautiful, swirling mess." Season One, Autumn into Winter, comprises 22 novelette-length zines, published between 2006 and 2014. Season Two, Spring; Summer, premieres in June.

Kip will be reading from older chapters as well as brand new material. Paperback collections of Season One (“Wake up…” and The Dazzle of Day) will be available, along with the first three zines of Season Two.

Kip Manley lives in Portland with the celebrated cartoonist Jenn Manley Lee and the generally astounding Taran Jack, a Crystal Gem and an auxiliary member of the Justice League. He spends a lot of time walking about the city looking for cool places to stage sword fights.
