Blackwyrm Digest One

Watermarked PDF

This free download contains the opening chapters of five novellas Blackwyrm published in the first half of 2009. BlackWyrm specializes in speculative fiction (fantasy, science fiction, and horror) by undiscovered talent.

First up, comes The Vast White by Jason Walters, the first book in the Murderer's Edge trilogy. This fantasy book is written in the form of military transcriptions, by an unwilling journalist with contempt for his audience and a gonzo mentality.

Second is The Rainbow Connection by Ian Harac. An FBI agent finds a dead Munchkin in a suspect's apartment, and must travel to the land of Oz to investigate. Oh, and people are trying to kill him, of course.

Our third offering is Afterthoughts by Lynn Tincher, the first book in the Mind Bending series. Policewoman Paige Aldridge is still grieving from a death in the family when she begins hearing voices in her head. Is she going crazy?

Fourth is Baour: Strands of Death by Dirk Vandereyken. This courtroom thriller in a fantasy setting unravels its tale through testimony, and has far greater repercussions than expected.

And finally is Albrim's Curse by Trevis Powell, the first book in the Were-War series. The young boy Albrim is attacked by a werewolf, losing his arm and his family at once, as well as becoming Cursed himself!

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.
