Book Details

Bordertown. Once a normal American city, now a perilous nexus between the World and returned Elfland. From the banks of the addictive Mad River to the all-night clublands where young elves and humans fight and play, all the way up to glittering dragon's Tooth Hill, where high society seals itself away from the street--this is no city to trifle with.

Bordertown. A place of hidden magic, flamboyant artists, runaway teenagers, and pagan motorcycle gangs. The city you always knew was there.

Bordertown was created by Terri Windling, multiple World fantasy Award-winning editor, artist, and writer. Now thirteen of modern fantasy's finest writers return to Bordertown once again, to tell a new cycle of tales of the city. Here are Charles de Lint, Ellen Kushner, Patricia A. McKillip, Felicity Savage, Delia Sherman, Midori Snyder, Caroline Stevermer--and here is bestselling author Steven Brust with "When the Bow Breaks," chosen as a finalist for the Nebula Award after the hardcover publication of this volume.

Bordertown. It's an attitude and a state of mind. It's elfin light and human sweat. It will never let you go.

In The News

“Irresistible: this is what the universe ought to be like.” —Interzone

“There isn't a weak story in the book.” —Vector

“The stories are personal ones, not epic stories with empires or worlds in the balance. A rock 'n' roll atmosphere pervades the stories. there is something about a punked-out, mohawked el in a leather jacket that shatters the Tolkien mold, that allows the characters to be different, to be apart from the previous mythologies....The chronicles of the Borderlands are heartily recommended.” —Different Worlds
