Quantum Vibe: Assimulation


Hugo Galvéz was once the smartest man in Known Space. Now, he’s the smartest “Tin Man” -- a formerly biological person uploaded into an artificial brain and body -- in Unknown Space. Along with his gynoid companion, Murphy, he has been exploring the Universe, charting and recording star systems and galaxies for the adverturers and settlers to follow. Until one day they failed to return from a mapping mission.

Hugo and Murphy found themselves restred from “back-ups” by the young Eithne Lamdagan, the 7th-generation gran-daughter of their oldest friend, Alyss Roaz. Naturally, they are very interested in finding out what happened to their predecessors in Galaxy S257163185.

When Hugo, Murphy and Eithne venture into that far away galaxy, what they find is far more unexpected, and dangerous, than they could have imagined -- yet strangely familiar, Worse still, a very dark episode of Hugo’s past returns to haunt him.

186 full color pages of sci-fi action.

Marvelous story, excellently told. I followed it on the website and am ecstatic to have a full-blown copy. You'll enjoy the strangely familiar situation in which the explorers find themselves, and finding out WHY they're so familiar was an absolute tre [...]

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.
