The Far Reaches #1: Pirates Are Loons

Watermarked PDF

Pirates! How else can you impress the girl you love if not by saving her father's ship from cut-throats of the star lanes. It's a fool proof plan as there's only about a million of them so obviously two sterling adventurers can take 'em. So thinks Binder, intergalactic socialite and mooch of all friends. The only trick is how to convince his old friend Gilrec Dauntless to have a go at greatness. The answer is to simply tell him it's a pleasure cruise! When Gilrec, who somehow traded his spine for a wet noodle when he was five, is knee deep in pirates and nigh-psychotic cyber sheep there's only one person he can call on to get him out. Bentley, the indomitable robot butler is on hand to save the day!

Note: This first issue, chapter 1 is also available in the full graphic novel vol. 1. So if you want the whole story for a great price, check out the full volume one.If you're unconvinced and just want a little taste of this amazingly weird and random title, check out Issue #1. It'll revolutionize your definition of weird!

The Far Reaches #1 is an odd little number, akin to some dates I went on back in my college days: Great looking, and incoherent. But when I dug a little deeper I discovered a level of weirdness that was strangely compelling. It’s no love connection, [...]

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.
