BattleTech: Shrapnel, Issue #9 (The Official BattleTech Magazine)Click to magnify


Shrapnel: The Official BattleTech Magazine drops you right into the action as BattleMechs and their pilots forge ahead on the battlefields of the 31st century and beyond! A rookie MechWarrior fights for independence during the Andurien Wars. The Fox Patrol finds itself on the Mercenary’s Star—and in the middle of a deal gone wrong. In these pages, you’ll travel to a distant Periphery world where a young boy pursues his dreams and witness a rare moment of unity for Clan Fire Mandrill in the Clan Homeworlds. Then return to Solaris VII once more for the conclusion of our Vengeance Games serial, and a close look at a different but familiar kind of competition on the Game World.

No matter your skill at the controls, you can wade confidently into battle with technical readouts, a unit and planet digest, a playable scenario of an unusual Hell’s Horses competition, advice for aging warriors, and a historical look at the capital of the first Star League—brought to you by BattleTech veterans and a handful of new enlistees:

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.
