Publisher Comments:

In the 1980s, author Terri Windling wanted to bring more writers into fantasy, so she invented a world, and invited young authors to build and contribute to it. That world was Bordertown, a city on the edge of contemporary human civilization and the Elven world--a place where magic and science both only work half the time as they influence each other--and a place that dreaming teenagers run to. One of the forerunners to today's urban fantasy, a total of three anthologies and three novels were published by several publishers (one of the anthologies and all the novels are still in print). Flash forward to 2010. Acclaimed authors Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Cory Doctrow, Neil Gaiman, Janni Simner, Sara Ryan, and more are now adding to the Bordertown world--to honor its inspiration to them in their own writing. They are joined by many of the original writers: Charles de Lint, Ellen Kushner, Jane Yolen, Patricia McKillip, Will Shetterly, and Emma Bull.

Synopsis:

Stories and poems set in the urban land of Bordertown, a city on the edge of the faerie and human world, populated by human and elfin runaways.

Synopsis:

Bordertown: a city on the border between our human world and the elfin realm. Runaway teens come from both sides of the border to find adventure, to find themselves. Elves play in rock bands and race down the street on spell-powered motorbikes. Human kids recreate themselves in the squats and clubs and artists' studios of Soho. Terri Windling's original Bordertown series was the forerunner of today's urban fantasy, introducing authors that included Charles de Lint, Will Shetterly, Emma Bull, and Ellen Kushner. In this volume of all-new work (including a 15-page graphic story), the original writers are now joined by the generation that grew up dreaming of Bordertown, including acclaimed authors Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Cory Doctorow, Neil Gaiman, Catherynne M. Valente, and many more. They all meet here on the streets of Bordertown in more than twenty new interconnected songs, poems, and stories.

Ok maybe its not really the best book of the year, but for everyone who ever loved bordertown before, its a read that took 13 years to get to and it didn't disappoint. For newbies, its everything you live about elves and music. For bordertown veterans, its like coming home.
