Readers of our Macabre and Ghost Stories MEGAPACK™ ebook series will surely enjoy this volume, which assembles the complete contents of two early British horror anthologies, Uncanny Stories (1916) and More Uncanny Stories (1918) both of which were assembled from tales originally published in Pearson’s Novel Magazine. Most of the contributors are little known today, but a couple—including Roy Vickers—went on to have distinguished careers in the mystery field. Included are:

THE UNKNOWN QUANTITY, by E. R. Punshon
THE ARMLESS MAN, by W. G. Litt
THE TOMTOM CLUE, by Scudamore Jarvis & Cecil Morgan
THE CASE OF SIR ALISTER MOERAN, by Margaret Strickland
THE KISS, by M. E. Royce
THE GOTH, by Roy Vickers
THE LAST ASCENT, by E. R. Punshon
THE TERROR BY NIGHT, by Lewis Lister
THE TRAGEDY AT THE LOUP NOIR, by Gladys Stern
THE MAILED FOOT, by Hermina Black & Edith Blair-Staples

VISITING ROUNDS, by Michael Kent

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.
