The award-wining novel by Mike Resnick!

(In PDF, .epub and .mobi formats - for Nook and Kindle, and iBooks on iOS devices)

Santiago - the greatest pirate of the age.  Wanted throughout the galaxy, he has evaded capture for thirty years.  Now two men, Songbird and Angel, take up the challenge - and gamble their lives in the attempt.

SEBASTIAN NIGHTINGALE CAIN: Bounty hunter. You can call him the Songbird -- but only once. He's after Santiago.

VIRTUE MACKENZIE: Freelance reporter. She never gives up. She wants an interview...with Santiago.

THE SWAGMAN: He collects art--at gun point. He wants a few pieces currently in the hands of Santiago.

SANTIAGO: Bandit, murderer, known to all, seen by none...has he killed a thousand men? Has he saved a dozen worlds? His legend is as large as the Rim itself, his trail as elusive as a wisp of starlight in the empty realms of space. The reward for him is the largest in history.

SANTIAGO: Do you dare to chase him?

A fantastic novel in its own right, this book becomes an indespensible resource for GMs running EN Publishing's SANTIAGIO: A Myth of the Far Future adventure path for D&D 4E and PATHFINDER.

WARNING: Spoilers for the adventure path!

"Mike Resnick spins a great yarn" - Jerry Pournelle

"Delivers pure entertainment and a rollicking good time" - Alan Dean Foster

"Resnick occupies a peak all his own in the mountains of science fiction" - ANALOG

"Resnick is thought-provoking, imaginative, mordantly funny, and  - above all - galactically grand" - Los Angeles Times

"Mike says he likes to tell fables.  That makes him a fabulist, and his stories and characters fabulous. Santiago's certainly fit. There is the tale's hero, the Songbird, former revolutionary, a bounty hunter with a heart. There is ManMountain Bates, gambler and avenger of fraudulent markers. There is the Angel, deadliest of men, and journalist Virtue MacKenzie, and the pulpit-pounding Father William, who collects scalps and uses the bounties for good works. Outrageous. Preposterous. Fabulous, all.

"You can already sense a strong flavor of the American frontier, of mountain men and gunfights, of Paul Bunyan and Mike Fink among the stars. And that's what you'll find. From the enchantment of page one onward, the book reads like one of those compendia of myth and legend on which we all cut our literary teeth. Where Resnick has previously contented himself with single legends, centering on only one or a few of his trademark fabulous characters, here he invents them wholesale, endlessly and delightfully."

Product Information
File Size:
3.39 MB
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.
