Description:

From the European arts of fencing to the Asian discipline of kenjutsu, the use of swords in combat has been codified and romanticized for centuries in nearly every culture in the world. Even in the modern day, when guns have supplanted melee weapons almost everywhere, the sword is viewed as a symbol of what a weapon should be. The first object designed solely to kill other human beings, and a signifier of honor across cultural lines, the sword represents deadly intent better than perhaps any other weapon in history. The Swordmaster has dedicated himself to reviving the lost art of the blade. At close range a Swordmaster is more than a match for any combatant, a veritable killing machine. One on one, the Swordmaster’s power is even more undeniable.

Written by Jeremy Puckett.

Cover art by Anthony Cournoyer.

Since I'm a fencing geek and studying longsword, I saw this and was intrigued. Since it was cheap ($1.75) I decided to give into the impulse and buy it. Now, for $1.75 it isn't bad, but its not very good either. Of the 4 pages, one of them is the cover [...]

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.
