Ramsey Campbell's Goatswood

Watermarked PDF

A Severn Valley Sourcebook and Open Campaign

"The castle came into view as I turned the corner and left behind me a row of untenanted cottages. It was set on the crest of a hill, three walls still standing, though the roof had long ago collapsed. A lone tower stood like a charred finger against the pale sky, and I momentarily wondered if this were the tower around whose window bats had clustered so long ago."
— Ramsey Campbell
, "The Room in the Castle."

This large, profusely illustrated book collects nearly everything known about the Lovecraftian-style universe which famous horror author Ramsey Campbell set in England's West Country. Reference chapters include Books and Artifacts, Cults, a lengthy Denizens chapter, Magic, and orientation material for Britain and the U.K., and for Campbell Country itself — the Severn Valley.

The eight scenarios are organized into a loose campaign which can be followed or not, as the keeper wishes. Among the places visited are Brichester, Mercy Hill, Lower Brichester, Lake Brichester, Temphill, Severnford, and of course Goatswood.

I don't think the previous review is completely fair. As indicated, a scanned book can never measure up to an original electronic format book, but this is nowhere near as bad as the previous review would infer. Both "Goatswood" and &q [...]

Just as with "H. P. Lovecraft's Dunwich: Return to the Forgotten Village," you again pay half-price for a half done scan. I haven't noticed any streaks, yet every page (including the front cover) seems crooked. Photoshop has an angle measurem [...]

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.
