‘I know it’s just my own programming, causing me to feel this way. It’s just the by-products of my own genetics, which were evolutionarily selected as successful when humanity began to behave as a social organism.’


She sighs again, and initiates the “kill” sequence on the neural net. The blond woman shakes, then stops moving. 


She says flatly, ‘That woman is a construct of custom-coded DNA, printed to our designs, and programmed with our memories. Nothing more than a biologically based computer.’


Ben offers, ‘I’ll have our people take it to the recycling chambers while you code the printer with the new design. That should help you get home sooner, at least.’


Rebecca nods, blinking while watching the rain trickle down the window. Ben leaves, and heads back to his lab.


When he’s gone, her brow furrows. She speaks softly to herself, the security camera in the corner of the room blinking red.


‘My thoughts are no more than programming, too. The only difference is that I am a random amalgamation of genetics, whereas you were created to be exactly the way you are.’


Then she smiles to herself, turns, and touches the woman gently on her beautiful, still-warm cheek. 


It is as soft as a peach. Rebecca leans closer and whispers, as if conspiratorially. ‘For all I know, my memories are fake, too, Liora. There are laws in place to stop that, but who’s to say my memories of those are real, either?’

Live every moment. Transpex offers state of the art teleportation. Painless neural scanning. And near-instantaneous 3D printing. Why waste years of your life in cryosleep, when you can be on any planet in our solar system, today?


Aiden was looking forward to his holiday on Mars. His wife and children had gone ahead of him, into the scanner. But when he wakes, he finds himself the prisoner of a clandestine organisation, and they have a task for him.


He is not himself. He is a duplicate. A clone. And somewhere, out there, he and his family are having a holiday on Mars—and they are all being used as leverage against him.


Or so he believes.

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.
