Speed Trap


The 28mm pdf model Speed Trap is the first release in the new Cold Desert Highway product family.  As the interstates spread across the American West, small towns on the seldom used old federal highways dried up.  Fixtures of generations of road trips vanished.  Among those was the Speed Trap: a town whose sole existence depended on catching the unwary traveler.  The Finger and Toe model represents a real town in New Mexico: a magistrate court, a law office, and a bill board for hiding a sheriff’s car with a radar gun.  The buildings are shells that can be removed to reveal ruins left after you teach the local yokels that valuable lesson.

It’s a perfect place to hide in a post-apocalyptic world.  Hungry zombies would roam the interstates for more savory pickings in broken down tour buses.  Gangs would avoid it because there aren’t any useable resources.  On the other hand, you do still have to deal with that magistrate who hasn’t seen a meal in a very long time.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Speed Trap, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

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.
