New Treasures: Haunted Worlds by Jeffrey Thomas
Jeffrey Thomas is best known for nearly a dozen novels, collections, and shared world anthologies set in the city of Punktown, a crime-ridden metropolis on the colony world Oasis, a city of aliens, mutations, private detectives, and sentient machines. His Punktown novels include Deadstock (2007) and Blue War (2008), and his most recent collection was Ghosts of Punktown, published by Dark Regions Press in 2016. Punktown is also the setting for the last publication from Miskatonic River Press, a Kickstarter-funded setting book for Call of Cthulhu that is very late but still appears to be (fingers crossed) in the pipeline (the latest updates from May and July seem upbeat).
Thomas’ recent short fiction has appeared in Interzone, World War Cthulhu, The Children of Old Leech, Year’s Best Weird Fiction, Weird Fiction Review, and many other fine places. His latest book, Haunted Worlds, collects some of his most recent fiction, including the Lovecraftian tale “The Temple of Ugghiutu,” two stories set in Punktown, and several previously unpublished stories. The foreword is by Ian Rogers.
Haunted Worlds was published by Hippocampus Press on August 1, 2017. It is 248 pages, priced at $20 in trade paperback. There is no digital edition. The cover art and frontispiece are by Kim Bo Yung. Get complete details and order copies at the Hippocampus website.
Another Jeffrey Thomas collection came out this year – The Endless Fall and Other Weird Fictions.
Right you are. How did I miss that?
And boy — three collections in two years? Thomas is a productive guy.
