Jeffrey Thomas mentions that Punktown, his collection of stories set in a weird and wonderful world, has been reissued as an eBook by DarkFuse (who also has posted the table of contents. It also gets a new cover, shown here. (A larger version appears below.)
Here’s the book description:
Considered by many critics and readers as one of the new classics of SF collections, now reissued by DarkFuse for Kindle.
In the city they call Punktown, on a planet where a hundred sentient species collide, you can become a creator of clones. You can become a piece of performance art. You might even become a library of sorrows…
Short, and maybe a little deceiving of the awesomeness that is Punktown. Although I haven’t read this specific collection (and want to), I have read some of the other Punktown stories and novels and have been consistently impressed at how imaginative and fun they are. The setting is a rich tapestry of excellent world building achieved through an intriguing blend of and science fiction and horror.
