A new Bordertown book! HOORAY!

I've been reading them since the first one came out in paperback. They are very fond memories of my (ahem) misspent youth.

This is so wonderful. I read the Bordertown books in college-- a late newcomer. I've absolutely loved them, and seeing who is to be included in this collection, I can't help but be excited! This is going on my wishlist.

Just started re-reading my faded, torn old copies of Bordertown novels (as I do just about every Fall) and in complete randomness Googled to see if there was any fanfiction out there. But lo and behold I found something much much better.
The new book will come out mere days after my birthday and honestly, this girl who grew up reading these books as a teenager couldn't have asked for a better present. I'm thrilled to pieces - seriously!
Thank you thank you thank you!

Happy Birthday in advance, then! I hope you'll love the book as much as we do. Terri's posted a few updates here:

SO excited to discover there's going to be a new anthology. I'm in the middle of re-reading all of the old series, and they're as wonderful as ever. Hurrah!
