We've got a special spring issue for you this month, chock full of great stuff. We've got d20 nuggets, alternate histories, and useful toys. There are two, count 'em, two comics this month, one of which is a preview for an incredibly cool online comic that you just plain have to download to believe. We've got reviews and comments, plus your usual top seller lists and the catalog. The cover art is a masterpiece from Jeremy McHugh, and the interiors are some of his amazing work on the upcoming Two Fisted Tales. This is a serious issue, people. Ignore at your own risk. On another note, this is my last month writing these witticisms and organizing your reading enjoyment. Anna Dobritt will be taking over as Editor in Chief next month, and she will continue to bring you the excellence you've come to expect. So wish her luck, and enjoy the read! TABLE OF CONTENTS

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.
