$2.50

We live in a society that grew up on pulp science fiction; the characters and iconic images from Star Wars and Star Trek are part of our culture. The spirit of freedom and optimism that pervades these films and the endless possibilities offered by the genre continue to be deeply attractive. This supplement explores the history of pulp sci-fi, from its beginnings with King of the Rocket Men, and the Flash Gordon series, through the Golden and Silver Ages of science fiction, then the visions of Gene Roddenberry and George Lucas to the modern television series (Stargate, Battlestar Galactica) and the novels of Ian M. Banks, Peter Hamilton and Ken MacLeod.

Based on the FATE system (www.faterpg.com). This supplement contains additional rules to tailor the game to the pulp sci-fi genre.

If you don't want to use this game, the information will be useful for any tabletop campaign. However, you'll find that most games won't scale to the point where a hyper-intelligent battlecruiser becomes a viable character concept.

At first I found this product to be very confusing. From its description I had expected a post-singularity science-fiction setting for Fate. Instead it turned out to be a pulp SF add-on to Spirit of the Century, which made extensive reference to that [...]

Limitless Horizons is a fun, light read that sparks a lot of ideas, but doesn't always develop them in full. The product starts with a broad definition of pulp sci-fi, which helps define what this book plans to do and not do. While i do not agree 100% [...]

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.
