Welcome to Bordertown: Now Available in Paperback!

"Bordertown is one of the most important places where Urban Fantasy began."
—Neil Gaiman
"I was a Bordertown fangirl before I was ever published. I wanted to go there so badly I could taste it."
—Annette Curtis Klause
"The original node for smart urban fantasy."
—Cory Doctorow
"This is punk-rock, DIY fantasy, full of harsh reality and incandescent magic."
Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Bordertown, a city on the border between our human world and the elfin realm. Where both magic and technology refuse to follow anyone's rules. Where Elves play in rock bands and race down the street on spell-powered motorbikes. Where human kids recreate themselves in the squats and clubs and artists' studios of Soho.

Bordertown, where runaway teens from both sides of the border come to find adventure, and to find themselves.

Bordertown, where nothing is ever quite what it seems.

Find your way.

Welcome to Bordertown is the latest addition to the Bordertown series, an urban fantasy shared world for young adults and teens. In this volume of all-new work (including a 15-page graphic story), original series writers like Charles de Lint and Emma Bull are joined by the generation that grew up dreaming of Bordertown, including acclaimed authors Cassandra Clare, Cory Doctorow, Neil Gaiman, Catherynne M. Valente, and many more. Join them on the streets of Bordertown with more than twenty interconnected songs, poems, and stories.
