Quinn anxiously peered around the edge of the airlock, making sure no one was there to spot him. He pushed himself through the opening and coasted rapidly to the safety of a large stack of crates tethered to the wall. From his hiding place, he had a perfect view of the monstrous dock.

Small ships and numerous spacecraft were docked in the immense berth, their hulls shining in the light of the distant Sun. Quinn recognized the stubby shapes of the Nomad mining ships unloading their precious cargo of asteroid water. A little further away, maintenance robots were helping dockhands load containers of food and supplies aboard scout ships and Merchant Guild cargos. He could see M-pods and exo-suits moving about, their thrusters glowing like hundreds of fireflies as they went about their business between the larger vessels.

Quinn was so enraptured by the sight that he did not notice the two men coming toward him. They observed the kid for a while, noting how fascinated he was by the dance-like operations occurring before him. The technician and the pilot looked at each other and smiled, remembering similar covert expeditions in their own youth. The pilot winked and nodded, then flew back to his idling M-pod. Quinn jumped in surprise when he felt the technician's glove on his space-suited shoulder. His radio crackled to life.

"Hey kid. Wanna catch a ride?"

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.
