Storyline Book 4: Storm on the Horizon

Watermarked PDF

"The end of the Interpolar War, along with renewed contact with the Capricians, signaled the end of one era and the beginning of another. I remember the days when even allied leagues eyed each other with suspicion and sent their war machines to fight for control over this or that. Now they are allied once more under the banner of the Westphalia Cabinet and fighting for the good of the entire planet. It's the War of the Alliance all over again.

"But the reality is somewhat different. Nations, much less entire planets and interstellar empires, do not switch allegiance overnight based on the charisma or friendship of their leaders, regardless of what the trideo shows say. Human nature just doesn't work that way..."

-- Nicosa Renault

The allied nations of Terra Nova have struck the first blow for freedom by sending a daring commando mission to the CEF-occupied world of Caprice. More teams follow on the 1st Black Talon's footsteps, chipping at the might of the New Earth Commonwealth objective by destroyed objective. The thrill of victory, however, does not mean that centuries-old grudges are forgotten, or even settled. And the Terranovans are quick to forget that the interstellar Gates offer two-way access between the colonized worlds...

Storm on the Horizon, the fourth Heavy Gear Storyline Book, is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Crisis of Faith, Blood on the Wind and Return to Cat's Eye. It traces the cataclysmic events in the setting of Heavy Gear, through a collection of journals, articles and conversations. Storm on the Horizon also features a useful appendix with a full time-line of events, advice for Heavy Gear players and profiles of important characters.

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.
