I was sent a copy of this book and I really enjoyed it. The blending of sci-fi and cosmic horror works really well and the quality of writing is complemented by an elegance of layout and design facilitated via some interesting visual coding.

Hey KK! Good to see a new release from you. As a credited artist on the book, can I get a complimentary PDF copy?

It's in my license under all my stock art already, so I'll just share it ( ) in the discussion.

Looks like a very cool book. I'm interested to see what you've been brewing up.

This book is awesome. The adventures are easy to prep, smooth to run, and take about 3-4 hours to play. I bought this on Saturday and ran the first adventure, Orpheus Station, with Cthulhu Dark the next day. We had a blast!

I highly recommend this book for anyone in search of solid one-shot adventures that don't require lots of GM prep to run.

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.
