The cover illustration was used in the Justice Inc. game in the early 80s. Also a pulp game. The authors listed are different.
Any relation between the two games?

Other than subject matter, no. Adamant Entertainment licensed the original artwork from the owner of the painting.

Any chance on a 3rd edition SWADE update for this great product?

I'm afraid not. Adamant Entertainment is not a signatory of the new SWADE license.

Should be easy to convert on the fly, though.

Does this require the Savage Worlds Rule System book to play, or are all the rules covered in this book?

As is the case with all licensed Savage Worlds products, this does require the Savage Worlds core book to play.

The bookmarks aren't all working

There are no bookmarks in the PDF of this product, so I'm not sure what you're referring to.

Ok maybe bookmarks wasn't correct term sorry that was my mistake. But there is navigation options to different sections. I've noticed the top level ones don't navigate correctly. So if I tap or click on chapter one it doesn't take me to chapter one but if I expand it to show sub areas under chapter one I can go to those. If that makes more sense.

Btw wonderful product about to run my second session. We had a blast.

Glad to hear it!

And I was mistaken - there ARE bookmarks. They just weren't visible in the reader I was using.

I see the problem -- I'll repair the bookmarks and re-upload the file.

A new copy of this is selling on Amazon for $280! It doesn't even include a PDF!

One thing I have noticed about Amazon merchants is that they often will sale books for inflated prices when they are still available from POD or publishers for much less.
Price gouging for those who think a book is unavailable or are to lazy to look around the interweb.

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.
