Rifts® Sonic Boom

A novel set in the Rifts® RPG world, the first in a trilogy

The fabric of space and time is torn asunder and Earth becomes a nexus – a gateway – to countless alien worlds and the forces of magic and the supernatural.

300 years after the Great Cataclysm and the Coming of the Rifts, humankind struggles against inhuman invaders and dark magic from the Rifts. D-Bees – alien beings from other dimensions – share our planet, as do monsters and supernatural horrors. Earth has become an alien landscape unto itself. A place awash by an ever shifting tide of magic, chaos, and madness.

Experience Rifts North America through the eyes of soldiers of the Coalition States™. Follow the exploits of a CS platoon led by the courageous and well-intentioned Lieutenant Gregory Merrick and Military Specialist Lieutenant Michael Sorrenson, sworn to protect humankind from all threats, be they aliens, dragons, or masters of magic.

Rifts® Sonic Boom™ is your introduction to the multi-genre setting of the popular, post-post-apocalypse science-fantasy Rifts® Role-Playing Game. Where high technology, magic and the supernatural coexist in a transformed Earth that is both familiar and alien.

Did they ever go back and edit these books? I own the paper back and it may as well be the first draft for all the errors with it?

A quick look suggests that they did, I searched for a couple errors that I remember and they have been fixed but I haven't checked the whole thing.

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.
