"This is one of a series of anthologies of science fiction and mystery stories by Borgo Press writers that are being distributed at cost as both ebooks and paperback volumes. The first volume in the sequence, Yondering, includes a baker's dozen of original and reprint tales by fourteen writers.

In ""The Quills of Henry Thomas,"" W. C. and Aja Bamberger give us a glimpse of a future in which music is composed through DNA computing. ""The Gizzard Wizard"" is Rory Barnes's delightful sequel to his young adult SF novel, Space Junk. John Gregory Betancourt's engaging ""The Darkfishers"" envisions a shanghaied Earth colony stranded on the back of a huge crustacean on an ocean planet. Sydney J. Bounds, in ""Guinea Pigs,"" portrays a future dominated by cutthroat corporations.

""Outside Looking In,"" by Mark E. Burgess, takes the ""world in a bottle"" theme--and turns it upside down. Victor Cilinca's ""Siegfried"" demonstrates the folly of taking those ""primitive"" aliens too lightly. Michael R. Collings's ""The Calling of Iam'Kendron"" is a stirring prequel to his epic science-fantasy novel, Wordsmith. In Arthur Jean Cox's ""Evergreen,"" we find that long life is not always what it's cracked up to be.

Award-winning author Jack Dann depicts, in ""Mohammed's Angel,"" an all-too-plausible future in which cultures, sensibilities, and terrorist acts are inextricably mixed. ""Ultra Evolution,"" by John Russell Fearn, is a cautionary tale about the advancement of man—not always a good thing! Sheila Finch's ""Miles to Go"" is the moving story of a wheelchair marathoner faced with a crucial decision. Mel Gilden relates mankind's first encounter with aliens in ""The Little Finger of the Left Hand."" Last, and certainly not least, Ardath Mayhar's poignant ""The Next Generation"" shows the human race forced to make a crucial decision about its survival."

Scanned image
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.
