Synopsis

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.

About Holly Black

Holly Black - Welcome to Bordertown
Holly Black is the bestselling author of contemporary fantasy novels for teens and children. Holly spent her early years in a decaying Victorian mansion where her mother fed her a steady diet of ghost stories and books about faeries. Holly collaborated with her long-time friend, Caldecott award winning artist, Tony DiTerlizzi, to create the bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles. The five-book serial has been called "vintage Victorian fantasy" by the New York Post and Time Magazine reported that "the books wallow in their dusty Olde Worlde charm." Holly has written three novels for teens including Valiant, which was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and a recipient of the Andre Norton Award from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Holly Black's most current work is a new series The Curse Workers. White Cat, Book 1 is a gripping tale of mobsters and dark magic where a single touch can bring love or death and your dreams might be more real than your memories. Holly Black lives in Amherst, Massachusetts. Visit Holly online at www.hollyblack.com.

Praise

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, April 15, 2011:
"This is punk-rock, DIY fantasy, full of harsh reality and incandescent magic...a masterful anthology."

Starred Review, School Library Journal, June 2011:
"It’s easy to be transported by each entry’s rich details and compelling characters, but this page-turner’s biggest success is in how veteran authors simultaneously address the themes through traditional fantasy tropes and current reality."
