Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9-12-In this sequel to Elsewhere (Harcourt, 1991), Ron, a runaway, lives in Bordertown, where the World and Faerie meet. Once a human, he has been turned into a werewolf by a potent spell. His friends are humans, elves, and halfies, and his task is to protect Florida, an orphan elf who is the unwilling heir to the Elflands throne. It soon becomes obvious that things are not always what they seem in Bordertown. Technology is not reliable, magic is not predictible, and people are not necessarily who they say they are. This is cyberpunk fantasy, where magic, teenage gangs, elvish whimsy, rock-and-roll, and adolescent angst blend into a sometimes murky but always lively plot. A murder, a kidnapping, and a trip into the magical forests of the Nevernever lead readers ever deeper into twists and turns and an open-ended conclusion that could permit a sequel. YAs will want background information about the characters and setting that can only be learned by reading the first book. However, the dialogue is snappy and the action never flags. Ron seems to have learned a lot since his arrival in the Borderlands and is a character with whom many teens will identify. Readers may feel at times as though they have fallen into someone else's psychedelic dream, but they will probably enjoy the trip. Fantasy and science-fiction buffs who have read Elsewhere will devour this book and look for more.-Bruce Anne Shook, Mendenhall Middle School, Greensboro, NC
Sally Estes
In a sequel set several months after events in "Elsewhere" , Wolfboy, formerly the human named Ron, continues the narrative of his adventures in Bordertown and its environs--the boundary between the real world and the world of Faerie. Wolfboy is still trying to protect his young friend Florida, the missing heir of Faerie, from the gangs of Elves searching for her. There's a lot happening in the story: one of Wolfboy's close friends is framed for a murder he didn't commit, Florida is kidnapped, several wild bike chases take place, Wolfboy and friends make a bloody raid on the River Rats holding Florida and several others, Wolfboy loses his virginity or rather, chooses to leave it behind, and he comes to terms with being a mute wolf. The action is fast paced, and the plot moves quickly. Shetterly makes good use of what Wolfboy calls "Digressions," which are phrases, sentences, or paragraphs in parentheses, that allow Wolfboy to make personal comments outside the plot's main course; also, there are two "Fast Forward" chapters, which Wolfboy invites the reader to skip because they cover uneventful times of course, one doesn't bypass them. These artificialities work because they seem so much a part of Wolfboy's character. What is most interesting here is Shetterly's use of time and his allowing one character to exist simultaneously at different ages, a mystery that is cleared up nicely in the end.
Gregory Feeley
"In this tale of Ron, a young dropout who travels to Bordertownin search of his older brother, Will Shetterly combines the everyday adn the fantastic to create a gritty, vivid portrait of a half-familiar world....'Elsewhere' works almost perfectly." Newsday
Locus
The Borderlands series is the finest of all shared-worlds.
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

Meet the Author

Will Shetterly lives in Bisbee, Arizona, with his beloved wife, Emma Bull, and his tolerated cat, Buddha. (They didn't name him. They don't know who Buddha fooled into thinking he was enlightened.) He writes novels, screenplays, short stories, and comic books. He's proudest of Dogland-your mileage may vary. He thinks his two best short stories are "The Princess Who Kicked Butt" and "Dream Catcher."

In 1994, he ran for Governor of Minnesota and finished third in a field of six. It really isn't worth watching Toxic Zombies to see his very brief appearance in a very bad movie.
