It is a blistering hot day, the temperature so high you could easily cook an egg on the hood of a car. And in fact, that’s what a lot of people are doing, cooking food in the sun while scrambling to buy some cold refreshment to accompany the quick meal before the announcer’s voice fills the air again. Everywhere you go there are crowds of laughing, shouting, and excited people. The air is filled with the odor of burnt rubber, exhaust, and high octane fuel. The wind thunders at this altitude, but its nothing compared to the roar of precision engines, the rumble of heavily-modified cars shooting past at over a hundred miles per hour. Welcome to the “Death Derby”…

The city of Styx is known as the most populous “city” on the Twisted Earth. Here almost anything and everything can be had, from rare finds found at Flea’s Market, to exotic shows at Moe’s Moving Picture Emporium, to fellowship and hospitality at the Temple of Unending Joy. But Styx is also known for its entertainments, none more popular than the death-defying races held atop Red Rock Mountain, part of the local tradition known as the “Death Derby”. Racers from all over come to risk the infamous Red Rock Mountain course, a dizzying descent down the mountainside, along the cliffs of the Grand Canyon itself, through mutant-infested camps and minefields, across a dried alkali lakebed, and back up the mountain for a torturous hour-long ride. During the Death Derby anything goes; vehicle-to-vehicle combat, boarding actions, and plain old treachery. The winner is the first one to make it to the finish line. The losers… generally tend to end up dead along the way.

Format

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.
