* {{Animorphism}}:
** Wolfboy is turned into a wolf-man hybrid by an elf he insulted; she was meaning to turn him into a dog, but magic gets screwed up on the Border.
** Gray becomes a were-cat due to a curse laid on her family by an elf her parents betrayed. The curse is only active while she's in Bordertown, but she kind of likes having some magic, especially once [[spoiler: she's blinded and can only see in her cat form]].
* FairCop: Sunny Rico.



* BigBrotherInstinct: The standoffish Stick becomes this for Manda Woodsdatter.



* {{Animorphism}}: Wolfboy, Gray
* BigBrotherInstinct: Stick and Manda

''Bordertown'' is a semi-dystopian UrbanFantasy setting where [[MagicVersusScience technology and magic each work half the time in an unpredictable fashion]]. Outside the city, there is the magical wasteland called the [[Trivia/{{Bordertown}} Nevernever]], and through it runs the Mad River, the water of which is an [[FantasticDrug addictive drug]] to humans.

The series consists of five multi-author anthologies--''Borderland'', ''Bordertown'', ''Life on the Border'', ''The Essential Bordertown'', and ''Welcome to Bordertown''--and three novels--''Elsewhere'' and ''Nevernever'' by Will Shetterly, and ''Finder'' by Creator/EmmaBull.
