“This is a series marked by its continued strength and vision, and lack of pandering to genre demands. We should all applaud the Monteleones’ nearly single-handed efforts to elevate the field.”
“The Borderlands series has showcased many excellent stories and award-winners—it should be on the shelves of everyone who enjoys truly dark fiction.”
—Into the Darkness
“Borderlands is an unnerving anthology series for all the right reasons. If you came for some soul-searched weird horror, you’ve got the right address.”
“Quite simply, you need to read this book.”
“The range of themes that propel these uncommon tales—personal alienation, religious intolerance, the quest for transcendence, the torture of hope—expand the horror story’s reach, and the wealth of relatively new writers featured is encouraging.”
