Investigate the Future!

The world of 2100 is a bright and exciting place. But among the dazzle of LED screens and the glitter of cybershell casings linger shadows – and within shadows lurk mysteries. Transhuman Mysteries brings nail-biting noir and heart-pounding whodunits to the world of Transhuman Space:

  • The types of mystery tales suitable for the world of 2100, from police procedurals to young detectives – including a locale for each genre where that type of tale would be especially appropriate.
  • Seven occupational lenses, for transforming any hero into an interesting investigator. Become an amateur sleuth, a crime scene analyst, or even a police "superdog"!
  • New and existing advantages, disadvantages, and techniques that are well-suited for a suspenseful story in this SF setting.
  • New and essential equipment for investigators, plus five off-the-shelf infomorph allies.
  • An illumination of investigation in the near-now. Data mining, nanodetection, memetics, and more: Discover what does and doesn't work in the world of detection.
  • A navigation of nefarious activities. From unauthorized existence through ecotage and money nanocleansing to memetic malfeasance, learn what's going on (and what isn't) in the world of criminal activity.
  • A look at lawbreakers of the future. Uncover what brings futuristic folks to crime and how they get ahead . . . and learn that not all criminals are human!
  • A guide on how to build and present a mystery in Transhuman Space. What classic tropes work well in the world of tomorrow, and what bits need to be tweaked?

Whether shadowing a cheating spouse or scrutinizing a charred spaceship, Transhuman Mysteries is the essential guide when there are secrets to uncover and mysteries to solve.

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.
