99 Deformations. These are not the “mutations” you find in similar lists for fantasy and horror. There are now “sharp claws”, “reptile skin”, “wolf teeth” and for sure no tentacles or “a dozen eyes”. The deformations listed here are detrimental, have no advantage to them and are neither rooted in the Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft nor are they zoological in nature. Some are examples of rare-but-possible real-life deformities, other are the abominable children of my own imagination.

In a post-apocalyptic setting they may be a pick-your-poison list for a world where -every- survivor suffered from the aftermath, even generations ago. Or it could be a summary of what “those feral mutants” (whose ancestors did not have the benefit of a generation shelter) have to deal with.

In a cyberpunk setting, environmental pollution, radiation and fourth-generation effects of then-supposed-to-be-safe bio-technologial-treatments could curse some people with some of the entries.

In a scifi setting, failed attempts at cloning or biological warfare (or terrorism) could be the cause.

In a super-heroe game, this could either be the mass-produced henchmen of a mad scientist or the other (and more likely) possible outcome for the source of the heroes mutant super-powers.

Last but not least, the horror genre has a long tradition of deformed antagonists, as well as protagonists. Inbreed, malformed through experimentation or as a result of contact to something not from this world, the non-glorious side of mutation may lend tragic or sheer hideousness to a character.

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.
