This series of short stories chronicles the strange events that befell a group of rangers who were shot down over a remote island, overrun with monsters. Not only do they have to contend with the environment and the nightmarish creatures of the island, but a group of Japanese soldiers led by a shadowy, scheming ninja has also been stranded on the island. The key to their survival is a radio tower, but to reach it, they will have to overcome the most alien and fearsome creature of all.

Episode II: The High Ground
After escaping from the crashing plane in Episode I, the captain explores the mysterious island and discovers that it is home to nightmarish, mutant monsters. Worse, there is also a group of Japanese soldiers trapped on the island, fighting for the high ground. He must lead the few rangers he can find in a race for the hilltop, but he soon finds that the enemy is ahead of him, and among them is a shadowy, secret agent.

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.
