NINE TALES OF THE DARK CITY KNOWN AS PUNKTOWN Monsters, mutants and maniacs…here, they call them citizens. In the opening story, “In His Sights,” shape-shifting war veteran Jeremy Stake (protagonist of Thomas’ novels DEADSTOCK and BLUE WAR) is reminded of the last enemy soldier he killed, every time he looks in the mirror…while the concluding story, “Life Work” (Thomas’ first novella-length Punktown story), follows a young businesswoman with a secret past and a syndicate hit man with no future. Between these tales one will encounter a wide and wild variety of the lost souls, both human and other-than-human, that haunt the streets of Punktown. "Whether (Ghosts of Punktown) is your first visit to Punktown, or you're a long-time resident, you'll certainly find at least one corner of its twisted streets to call home." - Rue Morgue Magazine "For Jeffrey Thomas, an entire city can become a haunted house." - Scott Connors, Weird Tales "One of the weirdest yet most vividly rendered cities in the genre, a gritty melting pot of desire and despair, of the grotesque and the sublime, of love and dread." - Paul Witcover, Locus Magazine ""Punktown is the perfect backdrop for Thomas’ blend of science fiction and horror…Punktown feels like a living, breathing entity in its own right, a place I want to visit even more. And that disturbs me." - John DeNardo, SF Signal "(Thomas) has an unusual perspective that makes most of his stories feel just slightly off center, which means that I’m constantly surprised by the directions they take…The setting is unlike any other space colony you’ve ever read about and I guarantee you will not be bored here" – Don D’Ammassa, Critical Mass Table of Contents Introduction: A Taste of Punktown In His Sights Relics A Semblance of Life Bitter Brains Disfigured Imp The Room Into My Arms Life Work * Another Ghost - Hardcover Exclusive

Punktown is a place I’ve been meaning to get to for some time now, it’s always intrigued me but I’ve never managed to take that pivotal fucking step in the right direction. It’s as if I just needed a rather large foot to the posterior as a bit of a push or a week on a sun lounger, yeah that’ll do it...

I am relatively new to Jeffrey Thomas’s world of Punktown and I am diggin’ it. The best thing about it is that there are a few that I already have and can catch up on. I like it when that happens. This collection of nine stories is a strange trip thru the world Punktown. Sometimes horrifying, someti...
