But if the books were not distributed in pdf format how could the creators be sure their work would disappear when the encoding format changed again?

(Why yes, I do have an opinion on this subject.)

I saw this book in the store the other week, and passed over it (barely) in order to pick up some supplements for Golden Sky Stories (Yay! Friendly fairies in the English countryside!). Your review has made me decide to pick it up next time I go to the store.

1: Yes, of course I worked out how to use this as a world in Traveller. There’s no magic, just good old fashioned science, as represented by psionics and Ancient technology no living being can understand.

Sufficiently poorly handwaved technology is indistinguishable from magic. That said, I love settings where it's unsure whether its magic or technology based, so I'll be looking at this supplement for more than just setting and politics inspiration.
