Borderlands novel out tomorrow

Here’s a surprise: Borderlands has a novel, and it’s out soon. As in tomorrow soon.

Penned by John Shirley of BioShock: Rapture fame, it goes by Borderlands: The Fallen and follows the story of Roland, the soldier class character from the first game.

We honestly don’t quite know what to make of this as the game wasn’t really a story-driven romp, but perhaps the 40-page excerpt here (*.pdf link, via) can sway you one way or the other.
