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.

The setting is a rich tapestry of excellent world building achieved through an intriguing blend of and science fiction and horror.

Here’s the table of contents for Punktown
