After thirteen years of absence in the world, Bordertown–that awesome shared world of punk rock and elves that surfaced in the 80s and 90s–is coming back. It’s coming back on May 24th, to be exact, and those of us writer types who were invited to play in the new anthology have been holding contests leading up to the big event. And it is a big event. The book is big, and it’s beautiful, chock full of poems and stories and even a graphic story to boot. You won’t want to miss it.
For my contest, I’m asking readers of my blog to watch this book trailer for Welcome to Bordertown, and to maybe do a little research (for those who are unfamiliar with the Borderlands) to get acquainted with the place. Then, come back here and answer this one question in the comments of my blog:
How would you get to Bordertown?
It’s an important question, because Bordertown is a magical place, and all magical places have to be gotten to by particular paths. Wendy and Peter go to Neverland by flying on a celestial road called the High Way. Dorothy goes to the Emerald Kingdom by following the Yellow Brick Road. Alice tumbles down the Rabbit Hole to Wonderland. In Bordertown lore, it’s said that anyone wishing hard enough to be there will find a way. So what’s your way, if you wanted it bad enough? How would you get to Bordertown?
I’ll be picking one of the answers on May 24th, and will announce the winner here on my blog. The prize? This really cool Bordertown pendant fashioned by artist Mia Nutick:
So who’s first? By hook or by crook, I expect to see some fancy travel plans.
