Published posthumously with an introduction by Amy Bloom, Thom Jones’s Night Train: New and Selected Stories (Little, Brown, $28) will delight his fans and serve as an introduction to this very intense and slightly demented American short story master.  Whether he’s writing about soldiers, boxers, drunks, or general miscreants, his prose is high-octane and variously funny or sad or both at the same time.
