Lanterns on the Dock

Watermarked PDF

Dear Detective,

If you are receiving this letter, it is because I am dead. Dark forces beyond anything you can imagine have converged upon me and taken my life from me . . . or perhaps something worse.

I have seen horrors beyond what the normal human mind can comprehend. Ocean waves that seem to have a life of their own, men with the face of a fish, and a looming figure over the sea--waiting just beyond some unseen veil to come into our world.

It has taken all of my willpower simply not to go insane.

I’ve been investigating a strange underground society in the seaside town of Innsmouth. They claim to be a society, a social club, but I know for a fact they are a cult--a cult hellbent on bringing doom to our world. This is the very thing I was trying to prevent.

Now . . . it is up to you to stop them once and for all.

I have suspicions that the majority of their activities are taking place at the Innsmouth Docks. I fear that they may be getting close, close to unleashing some sort of dark ritual on our world.

Go to the docks. Pick up where I left off. And pray that God is with you.


A Friend

P.S. For heaven sake, keep those damn lanterns lit!

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.
