BLACK IRON - An Ironclaw Novel

Multiple File Formats

Chains come in many forms...

Born the son of a Bisclavret border lord of dwindling influence and an unfashionable devotion to the old religion, Ian MacAllastair knows a lot about dreams.

After his conversion to the Church of s'Allumer, Ian has felt the call to abolish the common practice of slavery all around him… especially as enjoyed by the wealthy and powerful slave-trader Lord Douglass Rancourt. That Rancourt happens to also be standing between Ian and any chance of wedding his daughter Venora is just another part of the overall dream of changing his world for the better.

Ian is about to discover the difference between hopeful dreams… and dark reality.

A fiction novel set in the IRONCLAW universe. Written by Ted Mackinnon (Scars) and illustrated by Chris Goodwin (Ironclaw).

Product Information
File Size:

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.
