Best Bug Contender: Midnight Rain Bug-Hunt — 11 Comments

  1. Makes me wonder, at least a tiny touch, what *interesting* words might reside in my own personalized spell-check dictionaries (among other ponderous ponderables…)

  2. You’d think that, by now, the technology for scanner clarity and therefore better OCR recognition would be further along, wouldn’t you? Or have they progressed, but we’ve got to use $1,000 scanners and $500 OCR software? No way, Jose’! That’s why we have eyes and learn how to read.

    • The thing no one warns you about is this: Books get old, paperbacks especially, and the paper on which they’re printed gets brown. I had these professionally scanned by a reputable scanning company using good equipment — but the quality of the paper on which they’d been printed turned 15 years into a major obstacle.

        • Sadly, none. I have a long wait before I can reclaim The Secret Texts series or the World Gates Series, and my other stuff was collaborative. Thus, dead.

          Which makes indie more and more appealing every single day.

          And statistics that are showing that paperbacks are on the rise for commercial publishers are only because they’re manipulating prices, and charging more for ebooks than for print books.

          “Lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Twain
