The Hand Unseen: The Black Book Sourcebook

Watermarked PDF

You have been labeled spies, assassins, traitors, villains and worse.

You have been so long associated with covert operations, classified material and undisclosed funding that those in the know call you Black Book. If that's the price of protecting humanity, so be it.

You make no apologies or excuses -- mankind must prepare for the inevitable showdown with the alien invaders.

You will use any means to ensure that when the live fire starts, humanity comes out on top.

The Black Book sourcebook takes players inside Aegis' major rival. Learn the secrets, the ranks, the influence, the power and the equipment of the Black Book. Take part in their noble and desperate fight. If any of those bleeding hearts at Aegis object, they will be burned and terminated.

A decent book but not quite what I expected. In the world of Con X, where Aegis are the white hats, The Black Book are the Black Hats - making deals with aliens, ruthlessly covering up the Truth and probably (cf. the X files) run by a guy who sm [...]

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.
