The Future is Now

I'm a huge advocate of PDFs and electronic books in general (as long time readers of this blog should remember). I love me some PDFs. Read great, less filling (of my storage space).

PDFs have been a slowly evolving method of publishing, as it's strength (the ability to replicate a printed book) has also been it's weakness (in general, it does little to do more then replicate a printed book).

Greg from Dark Horse Publishing has been pushing the envelope with his latest - The Aqualii Temple. It's not remarkable because of it's content, it remarkable because of the way that content is presented. The illusion of the "click and pop up" feature is the first I've seen of it, and its a novel approach at adventure presentation. As I've said in the past, this method seems ideally suited for solo adventures.

I'm waiting on the print copy of Zak's Vornheim to arrive, as I find the PDF difficult to read. My interest in punk rock was limited to the Ramones, this seems more like the Sex Pistols. I'm hoping the print version brings it all together. There does seem to be some really good ideas about running city adventures buried in all the noise. Damn you Fins! Move my mail!
