Description:

The Cold Dark.  That’s what the scavengers, fringers, mercenaries, and smugglers on the edges of civilization call outer space. When you’re out there, surrounded by a frigid, ebon blanket of nothing, shot through with countless pinpricks of light, the universe stops caring about your health, your job, even if you live or die.  That is, if it ever cared to begin with.

Since the war ended, life’s tough everywhere, but it’s toughest for the unspoken and unseen victims—all the civvies who suffered at the edge of explosions, shrapnel, EMPs and radiation poisoning.  The Knights of St. George have their ideas how to clean up the galaxy.  So do the Ghosts of New Beijing.  Most people think very little has changed since the bombs started to fall.  So those who can have taken to the eternal night, buying, conning, swapping or stealing ships as they can and trying to eke out some kind of living out in the Cold.  Those who do—those like you and your crew—take whatever work they can find, be it legal or illegal, up-front or under-the-table.  But everyone has standards, and everyone who wants to stay human has lines they won’t cross.

Hunger and running low on fuel, of course, push and stretch those lines to near breaking, so when you’re offered a simple courier mission to transport fifteen large crates to a border planet and drop them off, you take it without question.  Sure, you’ve got doubts when the pay seems exhorbitant for the job, and you’re more than a little concerned that the crates are computer-sealed and locked, and the contents listed as “need to know,” but this haul could end your problems for a long time. After all, what could possibly go wrong?

…You should know better than to ask that question.

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.
