A nice story that grips you from the beginning and keeps your attention to the very end.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
