As America's economic and cultural influence grew in the 20th Century, the history of the literary arts in Europe cast a long shadow onto this burgeoning nation. And thus, the myth of the Great American Novel was born of a loaded question—would the United States ever produce a work to rival the accepted great works of Western Culture? Many tried. And, in the trying, many looked to model themselves after already extant writers and works which had gained positive notice (as standing on the shoulders of giants has always been one accepted route to success and acceptance). So herein this Megapack, Wildside press offers for you four also-rans of the early to mid 20th Century, four widely varied attempts to grab at that brass ring called The Great American Novel.

  • YOUNG PEOPLE'S PRIDE, by Stephen Vincent Benet
  • THE FUTURE MISTER DOLAN, by Charles Gorham
  • PAPPY AND THE PROMISED LAND, by Jack Gotshall
  • NIGHT OF FIRE AND SNOW, by Alfred Coppel

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.
