THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WORLD

The Strange is a place where fictional worlds, called recursions, become realities of their own. Recursions are unique but limited worlds with their own laws of science and even magic, seeded into the dark energy network underlying reality called the Strange. Some recursions contain extravagant sorcery, imprisoned devils, and lost gods. Others are populated by creatures that were never human, born of the fiction of somewhere else. Each recursion is a place of wonder, but each risks drawing the attention of vast entities that scuttle through the primordial reaches of the Strange like bloated spiders on a web: voracious planetovores that eat worlds—recursions and prime worlds (such as Earth) alike. 

The Paradox Room is an anthology of two short stories set within the universe of The Strange roleplaying game. In "The Stranger" a monster out of a recursion called Ardeyn discovers that Earth isn't the prey-laden hunting ground it expected. In "Four Winds," a doctoral candidate on sabbatical discovers a dangerous new dimension to her Native American heritage.

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, ePub and Mobi (Kindle) versions of the book.

Two good stories by the writers of The Strange RPG, Monte Cook and Bruce Cordell. The stories deal with Ardeyn and the Thunder Plains respectively, and hint at some of the rich background of their setting that they allude to but don't fully detail. [...]

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.
