Description:

Every Known Worlds peasant and priest knows to fear the unseen powers of the Dark, the nemesis of the Empyrean Light. So why do so many adventurers seek out the unknown, unexplored regions of space, risking their lives and souls for material gain? Are they insane? Stupid? Or are they fearless foes of ignorance and superstition? Perhaps all of these things at once.

Into the Dark provides five meaty dramas and numerous short adventures that pit characters against the unknown, testing their mettle in a crucible of terror or triumph - only they can choose which it will be. This book features:

  • "Thorn Manor": An addled old noble refuses to abandon his ancestral mansion before the threat of terraforming cataclysms. Can the rumors of an ancient treasure be true? And if so, can anyone find it before the planet swallows the place?
  • "Dark Liner": A damaged luxury liner floats helplessly past the jumpgate into the Dark Between the Stars, taking with it the only known copy of a holy scripture. Can anyone rescue the relic before the ship succumbs to forces beyond mortal ken?
  • "Love's Labors": A love-smitten noble seeks aid in winning the hand of a beautiful lady, but he must first achieve three nigh-impossible tasks.
  • "The Ancestor's Tomb": The sins of House Li Halan's past awaken to haunt the present. Only the courageous - or foolhardy - can imprison the terror and escape the tomb alive.

These tales and more are found inside.

Format

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.
