Shadow of the Past


High school can be Hell, and Mark Watson's strategy for survival has always been to keep his head down and try to go unnoticed. That's hard when everyone knows him as "that weirdo quiet kid whose parents died."or worse "that kid Jack and his friends mess with and beat up all the time." When he literally runs into the cute new girl in school he finds himself happy to be noticed, especially since she sees him as "the kind of cute and shy boy that helped her adjust to another new school."

Despite things looking up for once Mark finds himself plagued by nightmares of children in the 1950's being held captive by an unhinged man trying to make them see the figure of flame and smoke that's compelling him to kill. Mark tries to brush it off as the product of an overactive imagination and traumatic childhood until someone close to him is murdered and his dreams show it to him in grisly detail.

Now Mark must figure out the connection to the visions of the past he's experiencing and the supernatural force in the present that's targeting anyone close to him. Something out there wants him broken, helpless, and alone as everything in his life is set aflame. Then, and only then, will it turn its burning eyes to him and drag him down into smoke and darkness.

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.
