Thousand Tales: Extra Lives

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.99

Virtual World, Real Ambition

The game "Thousand Tales" offers exciting features: the first true artificial intelligence, and for some players, the chance to have their brains permanently "uploaded" into its virtual world. Uploading offers ultimate luxury for the rich, survival for the dying, a haven for criminals -- and for everyone, the chance to change and learn and make new things. As the price drops, the game's influence grows, but so do the threats against it.

The digital world has magic, transformation, and adventure for its growing new community, but its AI and ex-human people need something more to be happy. Finding it will take them to strange places: a forgotten battlefield, a colony on the ocean's surface, the Free State of Texas, the slums of India, and worlds that don't even exist. Can this game become a new source of freedom for the people both inside and outside it?

This book contains seven stories in the world of "Thousand Tales", an upbeat near-future vision based on realistic technology. It's fit for newcomers to the series and for fans alike. This setting is part of the "LitRPG" or "GameLit" subgenre that combines science fiction and fantasy with the world of gaming. Other volumes in the series (readable in any order) cover everything from people caught up in the game itself, to new nations springing up in the real world.

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.
