Check out Bryant's collection -
Particle Theory. An interesting mix of science fiction and horror
tales. Released back in the early eighties in hard and paperback
Night Visions IV : Hardshell (1987) - published as both a hard
and softback. Contains several intriguing tales by Bryant (I believe
this is where he published tales about symbiotic smart bugs and aloof

Koontz and Robert McCammon also contribute.
CINNABAR - first published in 1976, I think, it contains a number of
interlinked, beautifully surreal stories set in or around a future city.
This is what the scholars of speculative fiction had to say about
"Clever and atmospheric work"- Pringle Ultimate SF, 67 ***. "The setting

intricately develop a strangely moving vision of the rococo, many-shaped
life by which mankind is ultimately destined to explicate itself"- CN SF
His work is worth seeking out.
