You are colonists on a dusty, desert-like planet orbiting Proxima Centauri. It’s mankind’s first colony beyond the solar system. And because no one ever figured out how to go faster than the speed of light it takes years for news to travel from Earth to the colony.  Even longer for people and supplies. A ship is supposed to come every six months with supplies, but it’s a month overdue already.  Now the sheriff (and leader of the colony) is found dead. When somebody finds the body, he also discovers that the sheriff has been lying to the colony: Earth has stopped communicating with the colony, a long timen ago. Complete radio silence from the whole planet, though why is a mystery. By a rough estimate, that means that the most recent supply ship was the last one that’ll ever come.
How will the colony survive its dwindling resources without Earth’s resupply shipments? Who killed the sheriff and who’s going to take the blame for the crime? Will the Infatuated Scientist be able to confess his love to the Incompetent (yet lovable) Religious Pilgrim? What is the function of the alien artifact found in the mountains? Who will control its ancient unknown power?
What will you do to survive?

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.
