Hauling Like A Brooligan

The Last Rose of Summer

You’re on the download page for a scanned PDF of the 1978 paperback edition of The Last Rose of Summer. This is the original published text, browned pages, weird copyedits and all (I’m well aware that Elite shouldn’t have an acute accent on the final e… but that’s what happens when you don’t send pages to the author for proofing)

This text was revised and rewritten to create the novel Dying of Paradise, which was published under the pseudonym of Stephen Couper. For more on that story, click here.
