Humans Are Weird: Making Humans Unique Without Making Them Ridiculous

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

Humans Are Weird is chock full ideas for making humans stand out from other beings in your setting, letting you avoid both well-worn tropes like "Humans are average at everything" or "Humans are, um, adaptable, I guess?" and nonsensical traits like "Only humans come from a multi-biome world." 

This book contains 21 scenarios, from a galaxy where humans are the only bipeds to a fantasy world where humans were the first to discover ironworking and jealously guard that secret against their rivals. The description for each scenario includes an explanation of its plausibility and some of the scenario's implications. 

Humans Are Weird also includes general advice for coming up with more scenarios on your own.

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.
