Believable Illusions

Selected Option:
Hardcover, Standard Color Book
PDF + Hardcover, Standard Color Book

Science fiction author Norman Spinrad introduced me to the word “Egoboo” in his book “He Walked Among Us”.  “Egoboo” is defined by that reference for the real world, Wikipedia, as:
“...a colloquial expression for the pleasure received from public recognition of voluntary work. “
In those terms, this portfolio is definitely Egoboo for me.  It’s a way for me gather together the best bits of the various pieces of work I’ve done to date and present them to you, the viewer.

"Believable Illusions" pulls together a sampling of my work from various projects over the past few years to show you some of the fun things I've had the opportunity to work on, and gives you some pretty cool eye candy in the process.

The best thing is, this book is a constant work in progress, which means that it will be updated from time to time with new material, which you will receive (in digital form) at no extra cost!

So dig in and enjoy, and I hope you find something you like!

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.
