FINDER: A NOVEL OF THE BORDERLANDS. Emma Bull.

FINDER: A NOVEL OF THE BORDERLANDS. New York: Tor, [1994]. Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's second fantasy novel. "FINDER is both an independent novel and part of the shared-world Borderland sequence begun in 1986 ... Like Bull's debut, WAR FOR THE OAKS, the Borderland books all involve a contemporary world in which the human and faery realms meet, and Bull's treatment of such a world here, as in her first novel, is convincing. In addition to this imaginative setting, which focuses on a rough Bordertown filled with runaway teens (both human and elves), FINDER includes elements of crime fiction, which contribute to the dark mood of the book." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 7-58. "... one of the more successful of several recent attempts to blend fantasy with elements of the traditional detective story ... FINDER is an odd contrast to WAR FOR THE OAKS because the mood is so different, grim and relentlessly realistic at times, even though both use the contrast of magic and the real world." - David Pringle (editor), St. James Guide to Fantasy Writers (1996), p. 83. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#145876).
