Aurora Award Finalist story from a multi-award winning author.
 
"Doug Smith is, quite simply, the finest short-story writer Canada has ever produced in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and he's also the most prolific. His stories are a treasure trove of riches that will touch your heart while making you think." --Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Hominids and FlashForward
 
"A great storyteller with a gifted and individual voice." --Charles de Lint
 
"One of Canada's most original writers of speculative fiction." --Library Journal

"I first read this story nearly a decade ago. ... The images and the power of the story have stayed with me all this time. That's one of the strongest recommendations I can give." --Kristine Kathryn Rusch, award winning author  

"Well conceived, but as always, it's Smith's characters that drive the story. Big G is pitch perfect. Every aspect of his personality is just spot on. ... he is completely there and three-dimensional and his reactions and motivations are plausible. It works! The ending is just right. It couldn't have been any other way..." --SF Crowsnest Reviews  

"Fed into my natural fears, suspicions, and all-round disillusionment with authority...culminating eventually in sweat-soaked nightmares about a post-apocalyptic world." --Cicada Magazine

Book Description

Aurora Award Finalist story from a multi-award winning author.  

The Builders had made the House generations ago, to shelter the remnants of humanity from the poisons of the Outside. The Inners, the direct descendants of the Builders, now rule the House. The House protects the People, and the Inners protect the House. And Smoothers are the arms and legs of that protection.  

Big G is a Smoother, ensuring that the daily activities of the House are not interrupted by "Harveys," citizens who suffer violent mental breakdowns in the claustrophobic House. But when Big G discovers a strange photograph of blue and white swirls of nothingness when responding to a Harvey call, it leads him to a woman and a world within the world he thought he knew. And a world outside it as well.

Scanned image
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.
