Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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

    A Captivating Read

    I read this book several years ago as well as the sequal Nevernever. The characters captivated me and I couldn't put either of the books down. It's a great book for anyone who dosn't usually like reading.

    Elsewhere is great!

    The fantasy world of Bordertown comes alive in this great book. It's well written, very engaging, and lots of fun.

    The Glittery fansastical side of NY

    Shetterly is awesome, so is Emma Bull (his wife) who wrote 'Finder' that ties in the cherecters from Elswhere and Nevernever. I love them all! Read all three in my freshman year in highschool. Those books really got me through the day with their mythical characters and awesome writing style.
