Jane's Deception

Jane's Deception

Watermarked PDF

Doctor Elias Poole was a freelance researcher. He’d had a few setbacks, mostly due to the lingering economic effects of the Collapse and the ongoing social strife in the city, but lately things had been looking up. He’d made a series of minor advances that gave others a framework to build upon; and he’d met Jane, a beautiful young woman.

But lately, he had started to reflect on the ramifications of his work. Doc had begun to focus less on whether science could, and more on whether science should. He tried discussing the subject with Jane, who would just give him a blank stare, tell him not to worry about it, and start doing those things she knew always…distracted him.

But Doc had noticed odd behavior in Jane. Her irritability whenever he started having pangs of regret. The nights she went to the store "just for a minute" and stayed gone for several hours. The extra mileage logged on his car. Still, she swore she wasn’t cheating, and kept pleasuring him i the same as she always did.

This morning: Jane finally blew up at Doc, saying he should just keep at his work and not worry about what comes after. That's when he finally put his foot down; he would stop work on his research altogether.

She really didn't like hearing that...

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.
