You had me at "city world".

Nothing says Campbellian Golden Age Science Fiction more than a galactic empire with a city world.

Here's to weird star adventures!

Some things are just too cool not to take a swing at. It's perhaps a bit more Caves of Steel than Trantor but there's elements of both in there.

Is Galaxy Black going to be an add-on to this or is this a portion/supplement to the core book?

Thanks for asking! Strictly speaking Sub-ether will be supporting Galaxy Black but I try to make sure as much as possible that the material in each of the Sub-ether issues is as stand alone as possible. You should be fine with just DCC. Everything in GB is intended to layer on top of core DCC. The systems presented in the Sub-ether so far are completely compatible with what's already in Galaxy Black. Once that releases you should be able to just add what you like, or not. I am striving for an absolute minimum useful level of repeated information between the Sub-ether issues and Galaxy Black, though again once it's out that should be less of a concern.
Hope that answers your question!

Thanks! I think you will like it. It's being proofed by someone reliable right now while I wiggle things into final layout. I'm really excited to get this out into people's hands.

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.
