Kirkus Reviews said "These 11 mostly hard-luck stories, with their mean and nutty existential heroes and their punch-drunk visions of hell, place Jones right among the literary heavyweights.Dizzying combinations of prose punches with abstract bobs and weaves: a knockout." 2) Cold Snap" (1995) - In ten new stories, he probes the outer reaches of despair and returns with a bracing vision: "Cold Snap" finds the shattered and the doomed all stalking the perimeter of the abyss with vulgar fortitude. 3) Sonny Liston Was A Friend of Mine (1999) - his third collection of short stories. Thom Jones's world encompasses dilapidated fight arenas, state mental hospitals, and chaotic emergency rooms.
