Excerpt from the book, from ?Cry Havoc?:

As the four Knights leaped out the doorway, the planes fuel caught fire and exploded with a bright flash and a tremendous roar. The fiery hot air slammed into their necks and backs while they were in mid-air, the force of the explosion hurling the Knights dozens of feet across the field, at last bringing them to rest face down in the furrowed dirt.

Corey spat out a mouthful of soil. It had a bitter, rotten taste, a taste that seemed familiar but she could not place it. She noticed a smooth white patch of something sticking out of the ground. She brushed away the dirt, and gasped at the grisly human skull which stared back at her with all living eyes. Suddenly a pair of vine-covered skeletal arms shot from the dirt and seized the newswoman by the shoulders, as more figures erupted from the ground around her.

?Gospog!? she screamed, as she managed to unholster her sidearm and pump four rounds into the grinning skull. The creature loosed it grip and Corey leapt to her feet, only to find that her friends had made the exact same discovery, and were fighting for their lives against a shambling horde of dozens of the blasphemies ?

I bought a PDF version of the book JUST so I could post this review. I wrote the story called "Dead End" in the book, but the last line of the story was changed by the editor--rending the title and entire story completely meaningless. [...]

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.
