Bordertown Lives!

If you're a fan of urban fantasy, you probably know about that place where magic and rock'n'roll meet, that place where elves and humans and Halfies make art and music and sometimes mayhem on the border between Faerie and the World. You probably already know about Bordertown.

If you don't, you should. I found it when I was in college, and I've wanted to find the way there ever since. And when Ellen Kushner and Holly Black announced a new Bordertown anthology, I finally found my road.

I was incredibly honored and delighted when I asked Ellen, Holly, and series creator Terri Windling if I could create pendants from an ARC of the new anthology, and they graciously gave me permission.

There are pendants that will appeal directly to long time B-town fans, and pieces that even those who haven't read the series will appreciate. If you haven't read Bordertown, you absolutely MUST get the new book. Start there, and then find the rest. Because B-town is magic, and much of the urban fantasy out there might not even exist without it.

I've had to delay this sale for a bit, unfortunately, but now it's time. I will be starting the Welcome to Bordertown sale on Monday, July 18th, at 11:00 a.m. PST.

Here's a preview of some of the pendants...see you Monday!

Woohoo! My first online persona 20 years ago was based on a Bordertown character. This is excellent news!

Christmas Pendant
Hi I don't mean to be rude but I STILL haven't had the pendant I bought as a christmas present. Last I heard you were checking the receipts and then... ermm nothing happened. Did you ever find anything out about what happened your end. I'm pretty sure I've missed the deadline to reclaim by paypal now :(

Re: Christmas Pendant
STILL? The post office NEVER got back to me. I will go ahead and refund your purchase because clearly either customs ate it or the post office mailed it to Outer Mongolia. I hoped since I hadn't heard in a while that you'd gotten it.

Please email chimerasale@gmail and let me know what PayPal to refund this to, or if you'd like me to send you a pendant from this batch instead I'd be happy to do that.

Re: Christmas Pendant
Thanks a lot :D Yep still. I'll wait till the new batch comes out, see if there's anything I want then email you with a request for one of the pendants or a refund! :D

Re: Christmas Pendant
Sounds good to me! If you get another one I'll put insurance on it, no charge, and we'll make SURE that they can track it.

On your recommendation, I just ordered the book. :-)

I love these pieces. Can't wait to see more.

I'm very excited about these. I've loved Bordertown forever, and I bet you will too.:)
