Henley is a problem solver, an operative for the General Development Corporation, a covert soldier in the war to secure humanity’s place in the galaxy. The Trojan Reaches has many problems, but there is literally something fishy going on in the Dolberg system. Dolberg sits just on the other side of the Imperial border, primarily water, with a human population over two hundred million. In any normal instance, this planet would be ripe for the picking, but there’s one problem. The entire human population is under psychic control by deep-sea alien whales, the hursuuun, who have little interest in commerce, development, or the Imperium.

This simply won’t do. It’s time to go fishing, and Henley is prepared to wipe out the entire hursuuun population to free the human population from slavery. His mission would be a lot easier if the humans wanted to be free.

I dislike that nothing in the description tells me that it is fiction. I almost wasted money on this thinking it was an adventure or a world description.

There is clearly a PDF in the bundle now, just not in the ZIP file itself. Perhaps it was not in there originally?

Any particular reason why the download included .mobi and .epub but not .pdf ?

ePub and Mobi are the most used/requested formats for fiction. Mobi works on the Kindle app and ePub works on many other eReader apps and devices.

Maybe so, but the File information on the product says "Watermarked PDF" and all the other Mongoose fiction titles, even those by Chris Jackson include PDF formatted files.

Agreed, I'd quite like PDF as well. Easier to deal with in an ecosystem of other Traveller PDFs. But thank you - just started reading it.

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.
