Beneath the Glass and Steel

In the dark and gritty alleys, and the slimy tunnels beneath them, surviving is hard. Thankully, there are a few brave survivors who have decided to share their wisdom in a regular 'zine available at a low price.

Beneath the Glass and Steel is a look into the lives of those who survive in a massive near-future city referred to only as a "the Sprawl". It is designed for use as an in-game resource for characters in any cyberpunk roleplaying game by providing numerous story hooks, ideas for new allies and enemies, and elements to add depth to any cyberpunk roleplaying game.

Sewer Dweller 

The second issue sees articles from Michael Wenman, Yukiko Ashikaga, Sasha Morgan, and Ziggy Storm. It has a general bonding theme of "worth", including discussions about money in the Sprawl, and how to get it, along with notes about the social worth of a person ncluding their reputation and notoriety. In addition to these articles, there is an introduction to a faction of secretive mercenaries somehow connected to the homeless community, and an account of a journey underground among those considered the least worthy.     

Who knows what future issues may have in store?

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.
