Description:

A vile, toxic stench rises from the junkyard at the edge of town, here more than anywhere else. The odor is a nauseating combination of rotting flesh and dizzying chemicals, the telltale signs of a tannery. A small ramshackle establishment sits at the junkyard's edge, outside of which hang all manner of hides curing in the sun or simply laid out for display. Flies buzz in the air out back as a hired hand renders skinless corpses into meat to be sold at the market. In the shaded area out front a few primitive folk admire the skins and barter with the robed owner for a good price.

The gentleman known locally as "Skinner" runs a simple establishment dealing in furs and pelts, both rare and mundane alike. Popular among tribal folk from the neighboring badlands, his small business built near the edge of town sees a lot of visitors, mostly from folk venturing in from the desert to sell off skins taken from animal predators (or livestock their tribes cultivate for a livelihood). Skinner's has since become something of a gathering place for tribesmen eager to make some coin before moving deeper into the ruins to spend said cash in the city's ribald drinking holes.

Skinner has been wildly successful, finding numerous customers in the city who are willing to pay top dollar for exotic hides, as well as hunters and scavs willing to haul strange carcasses dozens of miles just to sell their skins at his shop. Despite having a shop that reeks of the smell of death (an unavoidable part of the business), Skinner has managed to make himself important to the local economy, turning a tidy profit while also serving as a link between the area's wilderness dwellers and their counterparts living in the urban ruins.

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.
