The Myrmidons


“These were men created from ants on the island of Aegina, in the reign of Aeacus, Achilles’ grandfather, and they were Achilles’ followers in the Trojan War. Not only were they thrifty and industrious, as one would suppose from their origin, but they were also brave.”

     -Edith Hamilton’s Mythology, pg 310

The Myrmidons are a race of men, but they are not true men. Created by the gods from ants, these grim warriors are resolute, fearless and powerful, but they lack the spark of imagination- the anima, the feminine principlethat gives true men their creativity. A people completely untouched by magic, Myrmidons have a reputation throughout the world for their fearsome efficiency in battle. As a race of mercenaries, well organized companies of Myrmidons are fighters without equal. They have fought in every major campaign that has shaped the course of history, and in most of the minor frays.

Myrmidons are one of the many races of mankind, but they are not a true race. Their strange origin as god-crafted folk has made them homogenous, and without true birth, their species has never grown. Myrmidons are warriors without compare, trained to wear armor and fight from the moment they can hold a sword.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
