Multiple File Formats

Writer on Demand TM Vol. 4: Grim, Fair e-Tales includes four stories:

"Suburban Legend" (approximately 6,400 words) rips from the headlines and twists the classic tale of a suburban husband accused of murdering his beautiful wife. This story originally appeared in "Imaginary Friends," edited by John Marco and Martin H. Greenburg (DAW Books. Inc. 2008).

"Artists Only" (approximately 3,500 words) tells the tale of a little girl who goes unwillingly with her brother to the local traveling carnival, tires of the garish distractions, and becomes lost. This story originally appeared in compact disc format in "Carnival/Circus," edited by Jean Rabe (Lone Wolf Productions 2004).

"Stew" (approximately 3,900 words) deals with a boy who decides it is right to go to war, but later regrets his decision. This story originally appeared in "Civil War Fantastic," edited by Martin H. Greenberg (DAW Books, Inc. 2000) and was later reprinted in "Stalking the Wild Hare," edited by John Helfers, Chris Pierson, Marc Tassin, and Jean Rabe (Walkabout Publishing 2010).

"Grok" (approximately 4,000 words)is a the story of the mud-man of the local Renaissance Faire. It originally appeared, appropriately enough, in "Renaissance Faire," edited by Andre Norton and Jean Rabe (DAW Books, Inc. 2005).

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.
