Review:

Bordertown is the place where our world and the world of elves meet... but not just any kind of elves. These are hard-rocking, magic-flinging, motorcycle-riding elves who aren't entirely thrilled to be back in contact with lowly humans. Nevertheless, certain types of both elf and human are drawn to Bordertown, a place where magic and science coexist, and where neither works quite the way it's supposed to. Not everyone can find Bordertown, but those who do find it discover that it's a place where anything can happen, and where they can be anything they want to be. This collection of 13 stories continues the grand tradition of one of the most popular shared-world fantasy series of all time, and it also serves as an excellent introduction for anyone new to the border. --Craig E. Engler

From the Publisher:

"The finest of all shared-worlds." --Locus

"Irresistible: this is what the universe ought to be like." --Interzone

"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 elf 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

"There isn't a weak story in this book." --Vector
