Stars, Specters, and Super-Powers

Multiple File Formats

This book contains eight short stories featuring spirits, super-heroes, and occasionally outer space.

"Starshadows in Sideways Time" is set In the far future, aboard a space ark fleeing the dying universe.

In "All Your Friends Are Monsters" and its sequel, "Turmierre Returns to the Sky," two medieval warriors escape a gladiatorial slave pit with the help of an ally who might be more dangerous than their enemy.

"A Bad Habit" is about an enhanced agent in a world of government-controlled supermen who begins to explore new abilities.

"Its Own Place" is a horror story in which a traveler’s entire reality begins to unravel after encountering an occult ritual.

The final three stories in the book are all from the same setting: "Mister Blue Sky," in which an emotionally scarred hero and her friends go up against a quirky magical menace with the help of a famous otherworld champion, "The Man Comes Around," in which unfortunate hikers are caught up in the battle between an alien scientist and the villainous Covenant, and "Misfits and Mistakes," which begins in the midst of an alien invasion, with competing factions of super-powered beings struggling to claim one powerful but unpredictable resource.

Includes EPUB, MOBI, PDB, and PDF formats.

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.
