The ABCs of Space Opera, Volume 1: A-L


Here it is, our first offering in two years!  Coming in at 98 pages, The ABCs of Space Opera, is easily the longest book we've ever published. Inside you'll find four new playable races, an entire new class of alien menace, and a new type of spacecraft.  There are also new rules for beam weapons, shields, hybrids and a ton of random tables.   At ten dollars, it's a bargain - and best of all, all the material within is OSR/Labyrinth Lord compatible!

So as a fellow contributor I can't leave a review. There are a lot of great ideas and hooks in this product for S&S. I would probably give this a solid 4 stars just on the creativity and usefulness of the content. My only complaint is there are several pages with a few lines of text and large blank spaces (this would be perfect for some art if you ever do an update). Other than that I found it very useful and solid with lots of great ideas. I hope to see a volume 2 or an update.

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.
