Book description
Previously available in several different versions through the years (one of which is in the novel ALL THE RAGE) this release has been completely revised to novelette length and incorporates all versions into one for this special publication.

Repairman Jack finds himself at a traveling carnival. During a look through the freak show, he comes across what he believed to be extinct: a Rakosh. Or is it? Jack thought he'd exterminated the vicious creatures. But now, somehow, one appears to have survived. "The Last Rakosh" has all the thrills of a Repairman Jack tale, but shows another side of Jack as he finds himself feeling sympathy for the trapped creature that once tried to kill him.

A companion piece to "The Peabody-Ozymandias Traveling Circus & Oddity Emporium"
