Manila by Night: The Golden Truths


In Two Full Turns...

The overcrowded megacity of Manila in the Philippines is at a crossroads: where East and west meet, an agenda set in motion far in the past is finally coming to fruition. The City has changed hands so many times in a thousand years, and a rivalry between different Courts and Sects that has simmered for centuries is about to boil over.

"Independence" is a Lie.

"Manila by Night: The Golden Truths" is part of a series of city books about the Philippine capital's nocturnal society, including:

  • Testimonies of Manila's chaotic history as told by the Wan Kuei, both local and foreign;
  • A description of the City's massive dragon nest and its strange abilities;
  • Details of the two aswang courts that have exploited Manila's dragon nest and the repercussions that their centuries-old conflicts have on the City and beyond.

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.
