    Maybe it helps if you know the setting a bit better, but I found the start a bit meh. But it certainly livened up and there’s an amazing ending. Makes me want to read more in this setting. I’ll add it to my summer projects list. The list of things that absolutely must wait until after the exams.

    (Which also includes downloading all the Doctorow podcast. If anyone has a neat way to automagically do this, I’m interested.)

    holy crap. i was NOT one of those kids who read the original series over and over. i was that kid that read one book once and could never find it again; the kid that has been sporadically searching for them over the past 20+ years based on tiny fragments…

    i didn’t find it in shadowrun (earthdawn was even nicer in it’s own way). i didn’t find it in any of my local bookstore’s sci-fi experts (the original search engines). but now, suddenly, “BORDERTOWN” – oh yeah! thanks (again) cory! can’t wait to dive back in (once I finish re-reading my copy of tMoPI, so like tomorrow, probably)! ;)

    Glad to hear this series is back. I was very disappointed that nothing more was done with it.

    I wish that Phil Hale had been hired for the cover of this one too! His art was what had initially drawn me into the series.
