The Fires of War: The Algernon Files Volume 2

For M&M Second Edition

The fires of war burn on the horizon, and a world already short on hope desperately looks for heroes. Luckily, they don't have far to look. Welcome to the so-called Golden Age, where the first generation of superhumans in the public eye are forging legends that will live on long after they're gone. Nazi supersoldiers terrorize Europe, while gangsters vie against mad scientists for control of the underworld. Masked mystery men and two-fisted adventurers bring justice into the darkest alleys and deepest jungles.

The Fires of War is a sourcebook for the early days of the world of capes and cowls. At 128 pages, it includes over a hundred write-ups of characters on both sides of the fence, good guys and bad, as well as a dozen exotic locales, maps, and details on wartime equipment and vehicles.

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.
