Scroll of the Dead Lord

Watermarked PDF

In the 1750s...  The Ancien Regime of noble, romantic France...

A kingdom of luxury and opulence, for the Nobility and increasing desperation for the common people.

A Marquis of exceptional reputation for controversy decides he is bored with the humdrum of normal life and uses all the connections, favor and monies he dares spend to have a 'festival' that expresses the freedom the Enlightenment strives for in the excess absolute.  For a limited time he and his guests are free.  Of every single law set by the Holy Church and by Crown and common law.  In his castle there will be total freedom, save only his command.  It is a festival that the best of the regime are invited, the most indulgent Nobility, some of the new Rich, a few of the best artists and radicals and of course the best of the classes that serve them in every manner especially carnal.

As the festival begins and a powerful storm rages outside the castle, an unexpected guest arrives.  The Holy Church has sent one of its own to fill a seat expected to be empty and they have sent an Inquisitor.   Aside from shock this would mean nothing for the Marquis has secured an indulgence so blatant it threatens another schism akin to the one that inspired Martin Luther years back.  A normal man of Clergy, even the feared Inquisition would either be a flower on the wall, futileypraying for their salvation - or himself be swayed by temptation, the pardon and indulgence applying to himself as a guest.

But Dominick of the Order Malleus - a man who hunts the Supernatural made manifest is not there to merely witness.  And as he is known to his chagrin as "Dominick Wytchburner" he is no ordinary man!

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.
