When Ron runs away, he ends up in Bordertown, a grim city that lies between the real world and the world of faerie, a place where elf and human gangs stalk the streets side by side, and where magic works better than technology. If the city doesn't kill him, it just may teach him what it is to be human.

Praise for Will Shetterly's Bordertown novels:
"A gritty, vivid portrait of a half-familiar world . . . "Elsewhere "works almost perfectly."--"Newsday"
"Shetterly has just enough distance from his hero to shape [his] troubled journey with skill and conviction, too little distance to patronize."--"The Village Voice Literary Supplement"
"Breaks ground that other writers will certainly try to cultivate."--"Minneapolis Star Tribune"
"Sometimes violent and profane, yet beautifully written . . . Not for the weak of heart, but a book for the adventurous soul."--"The New Advocate"
