Found this copy at a used bookstore. So far the best discovery I ever found in an used bookstore. ( )

A group of fantasy writers created the shared universe in which elves and humans met, and thus Bordertown was born. The city right off of the literal border of Fairy, it's home to misfits, outcasts, weirdos and poseurs of all types. The writing itself is uneven and often subpar, but the idea is one close to my heart, so I love this series anyway. ( )

Very enjoyable, and well written. I'm going to dock a star for Midori Snyder's contribution titled "Demon" It got better ten pages in, but I felt there was too much Asian culture, and barely any Bordertown culture at all. I kept forgetting I was reading a Bordertown book.
Ellen Kushner and Bellamy Bach (Terri Windling)'s "Mockery" had that good punky, edgy, passionate artist flavor that to me, is the core of Bordertown.

I recommend it to anyone who likes a good YA urban fantasy, but doesn't mind that it doesn't focus much on magic. I'll also note that it is not necessary to read "Borderland" before this book. ( )

Here's the thing about Bordertown: it's more than it appears on the surface. As a shared world project, it's a solid one - the premise is interesting (for new arrivals: Fairyland has returned, causing various calamities and upheavals, and creating a 'border' region between the two worlds, where neither human machines nor elven magic work reliably), the writers work well together, and the voices were fresh and compelling at the time. They still are, more or less, but that's not why we love it so much.

When I was young, we didn't have Youtube, much less anything like the "It gets better" project. Yeah, ok, we had zines and we had records, and sometimes you could travel to a bigger town and mingle with a larger group of freaks, but we didn't have a lot of older freaks to tell us the things we desperately needed to hear. In the Bordertown anthologies, the original writers - a mix of queer folk and musicians and former street kids and other assorted weirdos - found a way to reach us. They told us that sometimes running away is ok, depending, but that you still have to make a home out of wherever you end up - it's not enough to just survive, though survival comes first. They told us that it was great to be strange, and that we didn't have to outgrow it if we didn't want to, that we could go on to be weird adults and be proud and happy, if maybe totally broke as well. They told us that we had to take care of each other, and that the families we chose were as real and important as the ones we were born with. Most importantly, they told us that the million small acts of creativity and self-sufficiency that we practiced every day - making our own clothes, baking bread, growing food, making music, telling stories - were as vital and as magical as anything any Elfland could ever produce.

Bohemia is always changing and always the same, but like any other culture, it needs a certain amount of continuity. The Bordertown books gave us that sense of solidarity, and they still seem to - which is why you find them creased and bent all to hell, passed around from person to person to person, and why people will shell out as much as fifty bucks for an old paperback copy. They're a lifeline and a beacon and a map. Like the best books for young people, they show us how to navigate the route between childhood and adulthood and arrive in one piece. I hope they bring comfort to the strange - young and old - for many more years to come. ( )

In this anthology of Bordertown, the mythology is deeper as the authors fill out the world that they created and other authors join in. Bordertown is full of art and music as well as elves with their complex society. A theme that moves through Bordertown is the idea of how do you know where you belong and who you are. In each of the stories, the characters struggle with understanding the choices they must make to be where they fit. From dealing with a murder mystery to a rich, young woman who takes a foolish risk that could end up badly instead becomes a lesson. These anthologies are great reads for the what the authors do with Bordertown and seeing their styles change and grow. ( )
