Welcome to Bordertown: New Stories and Poems of the Borderlands (Library Binding)
June 2011 Indie Next List
“Imagine if someone lured all our best-known urban fantasy writers to one place and wouldn't let them go until they had collectively crafted interconnected stories of a wild, magical city on the borders of the real world and the realm of magic. That's exactly what Black and Kushner did, and the result is a madcap, rushing fantasy adventure with lost maidens, cursed shapeshifters, impossibly beautiful and cruel princesses, and a heavy dose of rock'n'roll. If urban fantasy is your thing, you'll find your next great fix here!”
— Jocelyn Koehler, Boswell Book Company, Milwaukee, WI
