Saving Saint Nick

Watermarked PDF

You’re watching the television when the regular programming is interrupted. Television news anchorman Buzz Murdock comes on the screen.


“We interrupt this broadcast to bring you a special news bulletin. KRAW Action News has just received word of a hostage situation unfolding right here in our fair city. KRAW has received a webcast with the horrid details of this kidnapping for ransom plot. Before we show you this video we urge parents of small children to have those kids leave the room. The images you’re about to see are shockingly graphic.”


Buzz pauses for a moment and continues. “According to the webcast we’ve received, armed gunmen are holding a man hostage at an unknown location in the city. Here is the broadcast unedited.”


The image of the newscaster is replaced by the dark interior of some sort of industrial building. Concrete pillars and walls are visible in the room. The floor appears to be concrete as well and flickering florescent panels are lighting the room. Large metal hooks hang ominously from a metal rail. There is a man sitting center screen in a wooden chair. His hands are behind his back. Most disturbing however is how the man is dressed. The man is Santa Claus!


The pudgy Claus is in full Santa uniform from his red hat to his black boots. Two men holding rifles flank him. The men are wearing felt hats like Santa’s elves but have black ski masks covering their faces. They are wearing combat fatigues and boots.


“Attention Christmas shoppers,” one of the men says with a smile. “In the spirit of the holidays we want you to give. Give to us that is!” The two men laugh evilly. “We want ten million dollars delivered to us by 6pm on Christmas Eve or else we cancel Christmas and the fat man with it!” The man pokes Santa with the tip of his rifle.


“Please, let me go for the sake of the children,” Santa pleads.


“Be quiet,” the gunman slaps Santa on the back of the head. “You’ve got just over 48 hours to deliver the cash or Santa has delivered his last present.” The gunman looks off camera a moment as loud rumbling sound echoes through the near-empty building. “Remember, 6pm or Santa gets it,” he yells over the rumble and the screen goes dark.


Buzz Murdock comes back on. “Obviously the police are treating this very seriously. Detective Steve Vincent is handling the case and told KRAW by phone that this is obviously more than a typical hostage situation. It is an attempt to terrorize our community’s children.”

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.
