The Scientists Revolt

$1.99

The Scientists Revolt qualifies as a publishing curiosity.

A collaboration between author Edgar Rice Burroughs (famous for Tarzan and the Martian novels, among others) and Ray Palmer (editor of numerous pulp magazines), it is a slam-bang pulp action story set in the 23rd Century, where the struggle of the intelligentsia against the proletariat has played out to rather silly results.

Complete with 1920s-style archetypes (including hardboiled Irish cops), sci-fi trappings like matter transmitters, and the obligatory romance between classes, it's a truly unique product of the pulps.

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, ePub and Mobi (Kindle) versions of the book.

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.
