Dylan Darby was born lucky. So lucky that he wins an all expenses paid trip on a luxury starliner in a contest he didn't even enter. His lucky streak continues onboard, as he cleans out even the most seasoned card players with a stunning regularity that defies the odds.

But when the starliner stops dead in the middle of space, light years from the nearest habitable planet, and he is accused of murder and sabotage, it seems as though his luck has run out.

In order to save the ship, its crew and passengers (not to mention his own skin), Dylan will have to unlock a talent he doesn't even know he has. A talent that will change the universe as he knows it in ways he cannot possibly imagine...

This is a demo pilot for a fully dramatized Science Fantasy radio series that is being shopped around for national broadcast or a potential Kickstarter campaign to produce a full series of programs for future sale.

It is both a tribute to, and an attempt to revive, the great 20th century American radio tradition that spawned the likes of The Shadow, X-Minus One and Lights Out, a tradition that is even more at home in the modern era of digital media.

Total Running Time: 42 minutes and 53 seconds.

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.
