    Quite Nice!

    First thing is first. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. From beginning to end, not a dull moment nor a missed beat to pick on. The style was awesome! The subjects were well defined and the amount of history and personality the author was able to breathe into these characters was amazing, given the amount of space for this short. I read it in one setting, granted a long setting, because I was enthralled. Secondly, I visited the authors website. This guy is A FREAK! Hats off to you captain. You are not ashamed to let your dark side dribble out onto your real life as well as onto your story pages. Keep it coming, you got me hooked with this free eBook. I will be buying up everything I can find from you now.

    Fun!

    What a great short story to close out "The Tomb"! Ran across this late last year and read it during a lunch hour.

    Good story

    This was my first Repaireman Jack read. It was a very good short story. I am eager to read more Repairman Jack stories and other stories from this author.

    Cool Book for my Repairman Jack Collection

    I am a huge Repariman Jack fan and was very happy to acquire such a beautiful piece for my collection. I was impressed with the detail of the production from the beautiful artwork of the cover to the detail of the book itself. Yes, there is a portion of this story that you may have seen before--but for a collector of F.Paul Wilson, I am impressed with the expanded version and presentation of this book and am proud to add it to my collection.

    Hmmm...

    Just be warned this is not a full story, short or otherwise. It's like, well, part of an after-story of a full story that never finished anyway. Could have been good if had been clearer and referenced the story it was written from to clarify what was going on.

    A large portion of the sentences are missing what should be the first word. Strange. Wasn't really impressed.

    Highly enoyable!

    Just finished reading this & remember it from a few years ago but still enjoyed the story. Just wish there was a follow-up to let the readers know what happened finally to the last Rakosh. Hmmmmmmm, one can only wonder.
