"It's a right pea-souper, innit, guv'ner! No telllin' what kinds a' bogie're out slippin' 'round tonight." The fish vendor tips his filthy porkpie hat to the passing inspector, who hardly notices the vague shape lurking in the shadow of the narrow alleyway behind him. "Certain and it's not a fit night out fo-" His voice is cut off sharply as a clawed hand closes around his throat, its iron nails digging into his skin. His screams shatter the silence of the foggy waterfront.

Inspector Prescott realizes, with a start, that he has been standing rooted to the pavement, while a black annis has jus killed another victim. He's been warned that one's been about, striking silently and without warning, but he certainly never thought to get this close to one.

From behind him come a hideous cackle,. Turning, he sees a misshapen, four-limbed creature that seems to be sprouting leaves. In its bony hands it clutches a large knobby club.

"Never a Peeler around when you need one," Prescott mutters, formulating a spell in his mind...

For Faerie, Queen, and Country is the first fantasy Universe Book created for the AMAZING ENGINE game system. The setting: Victorian England, 187-. The Tuatha de Danann are represented in Parliament.

He could be a consulting detective, half-faerie himself, with training in phrenology. Or, your character might be a full-blooded Tuatha de Danann, bent on wreaking mischief throughout London!

Step into the universe of For Faerie, Queen, and Country. And don?t forget the bit of cold iron for your pocket!

Scanned image
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.
