Theodore Rose Cogswell (1918 - 1987) was an American science fiction author. His first published story, "The Spectre General" in the magazine ASTOUNDING (June 1952), was a humorous tale in which a long-forgotten maintenance brigade of the Imperial Space Marines holds the promise of reinvigorating a declining Galactic empire. It's a classic and was selected by the Science Fiction Writers of America as one of the greatest SF stories of all time.

This volume (a reissue of Cogswell's 1968 collection, THE THIRD EYE) presents 16 of his classic stories and is the first of what should eventually be three Cogswell Megapacks, presenting his complete short stories. Included are:

NO GUN TO THE VICTOR
MR. HOSKIN'S HEEL
THE CABBAGE PATCH
LIMITING FACTOR
DISASSEMBLY LINE
A SPUDGET FOR THWILBERT
TRAINING DEVICE
IMPACT WITH THE DEVIL
MACHINE RECORD
ONE TO A CUSTOMER
THE MAN WHO KNEW GRODNICK
LOVER BOY
THE OTHER CHEEK

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.
