Life on Atlantis

Watermarked PDF

Beatrice Masant looked the young man up and down. His dress and posture marked him out as an Outsider, a Nov, and one who was, to use the old but relevant cliche a fish out of water. He was clearly nervous, fidgeting and eyes darting back and forth. Not pressure sickness, she thought, but it was the depth that worried him. How strange to think that, having traveled millions of kilometers through the hostile vastness of space, he was worried by a few thousand meters of water. But then he does come from a desert world, she thought. Atlantis could be as much an alien hell for him as Terra Nova or Caprice would be for her.

"Kalime, sous-sergent McRae." She disliked using Anglic, a crude, unexpressive tongue, but she knew he wouldn't speak Hellenic. "I hope your journey and that of your fe was not too uncomfortable" She gestured for him to sit.

"I have reviewed the proposal you conveyed and it would seem to be the most efficient solution to our predicament. We agree to your terms. You have them with you?"

The Nov nodded then reached into the bag sitting at the side of his chair. He extracted a data disc from the carryall, placing it before Masant, then reached down again. With visible effort, he lifted a large box-shaped object, roughly 30-cm on a side, onto the table. "It's designated ONNet CPU IG 672/44 and is fully trained. We call him Iggy."

The water world of Atlantis has resisted the CEF invaders for more than twenty years, neither side having the resources to break the stalemate. Now new forces are coming into play that threaten the balance as other colonies reach out across the Gateweb to twist the Atlantean conflict to their own ends. Utopia stands with Earth, developing new submersibles and weapons of war, while Terra Nova - who threw back the invaders decades ago - move to support the native resistance. Who will prevail, and can Atlantis afford the cost of either failure or victory?

Scanned image
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.
