Dragonfly: A Short Story

Suggested Price $1.00

I descended, picking my way through the detritus of cogs and springs, bolts and tiny wings, the leftovers from a lifetime of hard work. Each step was a tinkle-crunch, gears smaller than the nails of my fingers grinding beneath my feet. It made for slow progress, this ground. The rubble was sharp, and I did not want to cut myself on the rusted angles.

He met me at the door, swinging it open before I had reached the welcome mat.

"You came," he said.

In a cottage on the edge of time you come to interview the man who builds dreams.

He has been expecting you.

Dragonfly is an odd, whimsical short story from Chris Bissette, ENnie-nominated creator of Loot The Room.

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.
