Pass through any of the black holes that dot the universe and you enter Slipstream, a pocket universe of shattered worlds. Slipstream is home to myriad aliens, but it is also their prison, for there is no escape.

Amid the fragments of worlds rules the science and flavor of 1930s Saturday morning pulp serials, for Slipstream is a realm of square-jawed heroes, ray guns, weird science, and rocketships. It is a realm where the morals are black and white, where good triumphs over evil, and where danger lurks at every turn.

Ruling over Slipstream is the diabolical queen Anathraxa and her horde of Hand Maidens, Primals, and Minions. All bow before her, paying tribute to avoid destruction. None have had the courage to stand against her forces, at least not until now. For this is the role your heroes will take-bastions of light against a dark foe! Strap on your rocket pack, charge your ray gun, and prepare to blast off on wild and exotic adventures!

I own the hardback and PDF, but I'd LOVE to have a print on demand softcover book. I bought the D&D Rules Cyclopedia that way, and it's a great option for a book to take the wear and tear of table use.

I appreciate that. We don't do POD because the quality and cost just aren't up to the standards / price point we want to meet for our customers. I understand that can be a problem when a product isn't available, however. In the meantime, you can always print and bind a copy for personal use, of course. Thanks for the input!

The map the book references of the Slipstream pocket universe appears to be missing from both of the PDFs for this product.

You're the first to say something after all these years. Wow! Fixing now. I'm adding it to the Zip file for both this version and the Player's Guide. Sorry for the trouble!

Afraid not... too much else going on right now, but still something I *want* to do at some point. :)

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.
