The Phoenix Gambit

ePub (Nook, Sony, eReaders)
"Captain, they know where we are. We need to move," she shouted at her officer while rushing to her gear.
In five minutes, the team was heading into the sewers again. Before they shut the hatchway to the sewer, explosions sounded through the ground floor of the building as something attacked their former sanctuary.

Everything in war is very simple. But the simplest thing is difficult. - Carl von Clausewitz

It should be so easy. They had the advantage. The enemy was outnumbered and Rachel's marines had the armor and training to win. But now they were stuck behind enemy lines with no supplies and in a communication blackout. In other words, it was just a normal day on planet Gascony.

On the distant planet of Gascony, the Federation forces find them selves cut off from reinforcement and supply as they battle the Verrat't, cat like creatures of the Me'eritim. Captain Duncan, FUP Marine Corps, has linked up with Major Dietler and his mechanized battalion. In a desperate battle for the capitol of the planet, Duncan learns that Dietler is more that just familiar to her.

They must free the planet from the Verrat't and hope that the Federation remembers them on this distant outpost.

This is the fifth installment of the New Glasgow War series.

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.
