Kings Do Not Die, They Only Disappear


Years ago, Standish Fiske reigned as the one and only king of Manhattan. Now he is deposed, under house arrest, and seemingly the only one who remembers his past glories.

At least, that's what he thought until he notices a series of attacks on areas tied to his past. Someone, it seems, is trying to send him a message, but he doesn't know who--or what the message might be. To find out, he'll need to find a way out of his prison and back to his old kingdom. Then he'll see how many dots he can connect.

"Kings Do Not Die, They Only Disappear" is an original short story set in an alternate future North America that has been changed by the emergence of magic. Those with some power fight to get more, and those without power try not to get trampled. This story shares a setting with The Last Prophecies, the forthcoming epic urban fantasy novel. While the plot of this story stands alone, it presents a hint of a rich fantasy world of spellcasters, power brokers, and hidden machinations that will be further explored in The Last Prophecies.

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.
