Dear Peter,

Hope this finds you. Goodness only knows how. But these things have a way of working out. Sometimes. Look, I’m on this huuuuge spaceship with Jack. You don’t know Jack. But we’re on this ship. In space. With a hole in the middle. A hole being monitored by some scientists (who are creaming off cash from their employer)! The rest of the passengers are mostly squirrels and meerkats – and a badtempered jack-rabbit (no, let’s not ask).The Captain is an artificial intelligence who thinks he’s a pirate, the doctor’s a vet and the cook is a Madras, (literally – the guy making our dinner is a living curry) – oh, and the talking parrot is dead. How do I get into these situations? (Don’t answer that!) Oh, and there are the monsters. Not sure where they fit into the grand scheme of things but they don’t seem to like the rest of us much. Quite why they call this ship The Adorable Illusion is, frankly, beyond me.

Anyway, assuming I survive, hope to see you soon.

Much love, Mum

Aka Professor Bernice Summerfield

Aka Prisoner 442 – Whoops. Forgot to mention the “I’m here cos I murdered some people” bit...

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.
