“It’s not a garden spot, but it will look good on your next research proposal.”

“Think of the challenge!  The team building!”

“Make sure you’ve packed a scented candle.”

Six top Darrian university scientists are on an expedition to Spume to investigate the (top secret) properties of certain materials.  A Special Arm scientist on the fringes of the Star Trigger project leads the expedition, a vulcanologist, a seismologist, two materials specialists, and a technician are in support and looking forward to the university paid trip.  Have any of them actually read up on Spume?

Volcanoes, seismic disturbances, outgassing plumes and of course the ever present fall of ash raining down on the surface.  Survival may become more important than research.

“It will be good to get out of the office.”

This is the first volume of a trilogy set on the volcanic world with Darrian scientists researching, exploring and surviving.

A truly excellent adventure, Bill and Ted would be proud! I played this (and its sequel) at a convention and had so much fun it hurt.

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.
