The Surgeon Chapter 4


When last we left Doctor Hanover at the fort of Turtle Island, she and Master Rogers had survived the night protecting the fort from the marauding Hot Animal Machines, becoming comrades in the process. Their numbers decimated, the invaders chose not to flee, but to make camp outside of rifle range and harass the fort, making it impossible to graze their livestock and impossible to leave.

Eager to leave above any other motivation, Doctor Hanover reluctantly agreed to deliver poisoned opium to the Hot Animals as a decoy, a deadly "tribute."

Unbeknownst to anyone, Master Rogers had begun to rely increasingly on medicinal opium for the pain of a wound he received in Chapter 1. In his shame, he secretly stole some of the poisoned opium and only came to understand his potentially fatal error as he is asked to protect Hanover on her delivery run.

Now, we find ourselves staring down the barrel of Chapter 4: Heroic.

The physician remains the killer.

The warrior becomes her patient.

And a new threat is found among the bones of the old.

22 pages plus an extra 9-page illustrated prose story about how Hanover lost her finger!

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.
