I loved Space 1889 when it first came out, and it is still fun to read decades later. Great concept. John Carter meets Extraordinary League of Gentlemen meets Flash Gordon. And relatively simple system trying g to Lee it moving along and fun. What’s [...]

Great for background theme and atmosphere. Free, so the price is right! This PDF booklet doesn't give you any actual details for playing any games, though. Once I read it, I then paid a few bucks for the 'Sky Galleons of Mars' PDF. That rules [...]

It's been nearly 20 years since I played this game, and now my gaming buddies and I are getting back into it, full bore! Thanks to Heliograph for reprinting the original rules, which I just happened to see this last GenCon Indy (2010). Great steampunk [...]

My boxed set of Sky Galleons of Mars has been one of the quirkier parts of my gaming library since I won it at a Demo game in 1989. It contained this intro to Space: 1889 and I also had an opportunity to play in a Demo game for the RPG. Space: 1 [...]

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.
