"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
"(in Ghosts of Punktown) Jeffrey Thomas proves once again to be an amazingly talented writer, being able to make the reader feel a connection to the characters in these stories, and to Punktown itself." - Horror After Dark
"(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
Ghosts of Punktown by Jeffrey Thomas is one of the most anticipated Dark Regions Press titles of 2014. Available now on both DarkRegions.com and Amazon.com
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.
