Ebook Formats at Sci Fi - Arizona
In the last few years, the number of formats for Ebooks has expanded
almost exponentially, making the delivery of books in electronic
format much more complex. The following formats are available
for download and can be read on the listed devices. If your
machine isn't listed, check to see which of those listed it is most
like. If you still aren't sure, download our sample file to
see if your machine can read my short story, DUTY, HONOR, PLANET. One good thing about Sci Fi - Arizona: None of our ebooks are subject to Digital Rights Management (DRM). They
may be downloaded and used without passwords. We trust you and
hope you will respect that trust.
1. PDF for desktops
Adobe Acrobat PDF files formatted to fit on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of
paper. They can be read on screen and printed out to be read
in hard copy. The pages are static (like a Xerox copy).
Use this file if you do not use a handheld device to read ebooks.
2. PDF for handhelds
Duty, Honor, Planet PDF2
Adobe Acrobat PDF files formatted to read on the smaller screen of a
handheld reader. These files are "tagged" for enhanced
accessibility. Text may flow on some handhelds. Use this
file if you don't see the handheld format you are looking for and
your machine reads PDF files as a "second language."
3. MOBI (same as PRC)
Honor, Planet PRC
The PRC file format comes in both simple and complex formats.

within that make for a good looking output. It also displays

but the files are eminently readable.
