I’m a fan of Jeffrey Thomas’ Punktown stories. The ones I’ve read have been refreshingly original and fun. I just heard about this deal from Jeff’s blog: his Punktown novel Everybody Scream! is available for only 99 cents for a limited time.
Here is the book description:
Jeffrey Thomas first seduced readers to the world of Punktown through a short story collection of the same name, bending time and technology to create a futuristic world which felt more real than our own. Everybody Scream! continues the seduction with characters every bit as vibrant only this time each person’s story collides with the others in a dizzying thrill-ride of a novel.
It’s the final day of the season for the annual Punktown Fair and excitement is high. For the couple in charge, Del and Sophi Kahn, it’s a bittersweet day of transition. Little do they realize the trials they will face and how severely this one day will test their relationship. In fact, closing day seems to be a catalyst for many Punktown residents; drawing them in, stirring them up and letting them loose on each other.
This roller coaster tale builds to a peak of expectation then plummets, twisting and turning, a breathtaking juggernaut to the final chapters with plenty of screams and giggles along the way.
This was an easy instant-buy for me.
