Not a minor problem (Candela Obscura)

Suggested Price $1.00

A dishevelled and bedraggled man crouches down amongst the crates and barrels.  His gnarled and twisted hands mirroring now his body, naked apart from a pair of ripped ¾ length pants.  His torso seemingly bleached through lack of sunlight.  He moves to avoid detection and proceeds to stub his toe.  He tries to curse at the pain, but long ago lost the power of speech.

The noise did not go unnoticed though, as two burley looking security guards, one holding a rabid looking dog on a chain turn in his direction. “Did you ‘ear that?” one asks. “Yeah – I’m sure the creature’s in ‘ere, can’t run foreva the bloody mutant!”.

Taking his chance, the barely clothed man makes a run for a large sliding door in the warehouse.  He’s come this far and he’ll die before returning.  Unfortunately, again he trips and scrambles, like a cornered animal, on all fours towards the sliver of moonlight from the outside world.

“There ‘e is” says the first guard, letting the salivating dog off the chain, “Get ‘im boy – go on!” he encourages the hound further as it breaks into a sprint after the pathetic figure.

In the end, it is no contest, no screams, no gurgling emanates from the escapee, only the sound of the dog, tearing apart its prey.

"Not a minor problem" is a Candela Obscura assignment for Circle members to investigate the dissapearance of some army veterans and discover the actual source of a new, innovative fuel that is becoming very popular in Newfaire.

This is the fifth and final title under the Circle of the Veiled Enigma - The Etherium Arc. You can find the other titles: "The Brood", "A Miner Problem", "Out of the box" and "For whom the bell tolls" here also.

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.
