$0.99

This lighthearted and humorous fantasy short story describes what happens when a young woman takes over her deceased father’s business as a consulting magician and how she deals with troublesome clients, unreliable retainers, and devious rivals. It is very similar in tone to the Arabian Nights, which was very popular during the era when it was written, and includes appearances by numerous nonhuman creatures, including giants, gnomes, hippogriffs, ghosts, and hobgoblins. 

“The Magician’s Daughter” was written by prolific and popular American author Frank R. Stockton and illustrated by artist E.B. Bensell and was originally published in 1880. 

Ruins of Woebrook

In the Time Before, Willowbrook Mall was a hustling, bustling mecca of conspicuous consumption. But now, nestled deep in the deadly Hugeston swamps, sits the forlorn “Woebrook”: an overgrown, waterlogged, abandoned ruin. Well, maybe not all that abandoned ... “The Ruins of Woebrook” is a post-apocalyptic adventure suitable for the Mutant Future retroclone of Gamma World and can be used as-is with it and any other sci-fi, fantasy, or post-apocalyptic games that use the "Basic" version of the OGL system, and easily adapted to other games using the same core rules.

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.
