Principia Discordia: or How I Found Goddess and What I Did to Her Once I Found Her

Presented by: Dog Soul Publishing, a Division of Emerald Press

If you need any further description than that, then you are not one of those who really needs to know about this book…or perhaps you are! A bizarre tome originally penned in 1969 by Malcalypse the Younger and Omar Kiyham Ravenhurst (and subsequently ripped off by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson for inclusion in their ultimately subversive, über-conspiracy novel The Illuminatus Trillogy), this little gem will help you find Eris, the Goddess of Discord, who happens to be firmly lodged between the hodge and the podge of your local pineal gland!

Warning: There is some pretty adult language throughout the text, so if mommy catches you with it under the covers at night when you’re supposed to be sleeping, don’t blame us if you get a spanking! And if you’re into that sort of thing, for Goddess’ sake don’t tell us about it!

PS: The first word in the title is pronounced (prin-KIP-ee-ah), just like the lovely tome Principia Mathematica penned by Newton….No, not Olivia Newton John! Isaac Newton, you nimrod!

Doesn't really have anything to do with gaming, but Dog Soul have seen the opportunity to pass on a fun public domain document and recoup the cost of delivery. Seems fair enough to me. It's a good scan and I agree with the decision to publish as an ima [...]

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.
