The easy way: Punjar is based on Lankhmar so read Fritz Leiber's Fahfard and mouser stuff.
So I hit e-bay and tracked down the Punjar stuff.
1. Sellswords of Punjar (DCC 53; Harley Stroh)
2. Scions of Punjar (DCC 56; Chris Doyle)
3. Thrones of Punjar (DCC 60; Rick Maffei)
4. Runjar: the Tarnished Jewel (Harley Stroh)
Of course it's all 4E stuff so it may be a pain to actually convert to DCC, but I bought the modules for the background and setting information anyway and not the actual adventures.
Sellswords has a neat "Begger's Treasure" table and a cool insert map. Appendix I talks a little about the city and further adventures.
Scions seems more "adventure like" and doesn't seem to have much background material for the city. Same with Thrones. I haven't decided if I want to keep the "complete" set yet because I'm guessing I could have passed on these and not missed much, Punjar wise. I'm going to read a bit more, but these may hit my "send to Noble Knight" pile.
Tarnished Jewel is by far the most useful of the four, as far as just giving the basics of the city and what can be found there.Lesson learned
: buy anything written by Harley.
