The Vang: The Battlemaster


Hostile Takeover

Until bad investements robbed him of all but the poorest of his family estates, Count Geezl --"Emperor"-- Karvur had ruled the debauched nights of the planet Wexel. Now circumstances forced him to take his sadistic pleasures among the uncouth peasants of Wexel's hilly outback.

But the count was driven to return to his old haunts, and that he could do only if he was rich -- immensely rich. So he wore the tattoos off his peasant-skin boots desperately searching the family's ancient and barren lands for any salable commodity.

It was there, embedded in rock 84 million years old, that Emperor Karvur found the huge alien artifact that transformed him into something he'd never imagined - or desired... something that would threaten the very existence of humanity.

Third book of the Vang series.

One of the best creepy alien sci-fi novels I have ever read, and officially one of the few books I have now read 3 times. Glad to own it on PDF. The scan was pretty clean, all things considered. I wish Rowley would return to his sci fi Starhammer/Vang [...]

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.
