I suspect that this work is self-edited, which is not necessarily a bad thing. But in this case, running this by someone who wasn't a hard-core Slammers fan might have been useful. The free sample provided reads like a mediocre blog post, written for subscribers who already know what the blogger is talking about. For example, before the info dump on the vehicle, unit and planet, there should be with something like: "This introduction will detail development of the unique vehicle which equips the player character's mercenary unit, then offer an overview of the unusual inception of said unit and end with a brief history of the current situation on the planet of initial deployment." The info dump should then be divided into those three sections, so that GMs who skim the section can later come back and find what they prove to need a bit easier.

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.
