From Jeffrey Thomas, author of Punktown.
In Punktown's dangerously alluring streets, you will meet extradimensional monsters, murderous aliens, vampiric mutants, coffee-loving robots, confused clones, and war vets looking for one last, bloody battle to fight. Welcome: you are now entering Punktown. You are now entering the city that Publishers Weekly described as "equal parts H. P. Lovecraft's Arkham and Blade Runner's dark metropolis."
PRAISE FOR THE PUNKTOWN SERIES:
“Punktown is on the verge of becoming one of those classic, timeless destinations for dark fantasy and SF readers.”
– Jeff VanderMeer, author of the Southern Reach trilogy
“Punktown is searing and alien and anxious and rich, and it is humane, and it is moving. Jeffrey Thomas has done something wonderful.”
– China Mieville, author of EMBASSYTOWN
“All the gritty immediacy and romantic cynicism of classic cyberpunk, along with morally complex, vividly disturbing evocations of supernatural eruptions and corruptions.”
– Paul Witcover, in Locus
“For a wild ride...readers will be hard-pressed to find a better vehicle than Thomas's bizarre multiverse; fans of cyberpunk noir and Lovecraftian horror will find much to enjoy in this messy, bravura hybrid.”
– Publishers Weekly starred review of DEADSTOCK
“Thomas is a very good wordsmith with a fecund and detailed imagination.”
– Publishers Weekly
“A dazzlingly complex and detailed future vision as poetic as it is horrifying, full of insights and images that cling to the mind.”
– Ramsey Campbell
“Jeffrey Thomas sounds like no-one else precisely because he writes of a place no-one else has been, yet which can feel like home.”
– Michael Marshall Smith, author of ONLY FORWARD
“Thomas’s control of pacing and plot is expert, while Punktown has the chaotic immediacy and lived-in feel of a real place.”
– Eric Brown, in The Guardian
“Punktown is one of the best examples of SF horror currently out there.”
– Ellen Datlow, in Locus
“Terrifically vital, violent, and imaginative.”
– Ellen Datlow
“Thomas is a master at crafting atmosphere in his writing – in the loving portrayals of his fictional town in all its seedy glory, and in the way he uses the mood he creates around his characters and their dilemmas to subvert the reader’s expectations.”
– Keith Brooke, in Infinity Plus
Years later in Chicago, crime lord Alphonse Capone is introduced to a new mobster in town. A man who, unthinkably, demands a share of Capone's empire. A man who was once called Attilio Augusta. A man who is no longer merely human.
Blood Society follows the career of an undying mafioso from Chicago in the 1920s to Boston in the 1990s. Along his blood-splattered path he will face traitorous comrades, a dangerously obsessed priest, the same volatile woman who turned him so many years before, and ultimately an enemy band of gangsters who are beings like himself. Beings that cross at will into a mysterious alternate world. Beings that transform into hideous creatures impervious to bullets, knives and bombs. Creatures with a thirst for money, power, and...blood. Blood Society is an epic supernatural horror novel by Jeffrey Thomas, author of the cult classics Punktown and Letters From Hades.
