BORDERTOWN LIVES!!!

I have been sitting on my hands for months, now, and you know it's been TORTURE. But the deal is finally done, and now blackholly & I can joyously announce:

We're doing a new Bordertown anthology!

Here's the official announcement to the trade:

Terri Windling's groundbreaking urban fantasy shared world is back in an all new Borderlands anthology, WELCOME TO BORDERTOWN, to be edited by Holly Black and Ellen Kushner, featuring new stories from many of the original writers including Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, Midori Snyder and Charles de Lint, as well as new work by writers who were inspired by the original series, including Cassandra Clare, Cory Doctorow, Kelly Link and more. At auction to Mallory Loehr at Random House Children's Books, by Barry Goldblatt at Barry Goldblatt Literary LLC and Christopher Schelling at Ralph M. Vicinanza Ltd.

Of course, there's a long & entertaining backstory, which I will tell you when I'm not packing for big trip. But essentially Holly & I decided it was time. We went to Terri, who gave us her blessing. Terri's deep in her own art and writing these days and won't be editing the volume herself, but she's been closely consulting with us, and will write an Introduction to the new volume. The title is tentative, and so is the pub date, but we think it's Summer 2011 (I know, I know, seems like forever - unless you're the one having to write the story, design the cover, create the marketing, etc etc).

Is this the first of many? Will the old stories come back into print? Even we do not know the answers to any of this yet. All we know is, Random House is excited, we're excited, and right now we're dreaming of the Border . . . .See you there!

ADDED: Also see posts by Holly here & Terri here.
