You can hear them moving up fast; faster than your meat legs can carry you. There's a snick as they pop the rippers and move in for the kill; you flatten against the alley wall, and brace your Minami against the slick, slimy stone. It's now or never, you think, slamming back the bolt and offering up a prayer to whatever dark and nameless gods might be listening.

Maybe if you'd known this was Blood Razor turf, you woulda been smart enough to stay clear after dark. Maybe there was another way to get crosstown and infiltrate Arasaka's Japantown base, but you didn't know it. Maybe if you'd stopped to download some info from a dataterm before you walked right into the sharp end, you wouldn't be here now, waiting to become a booster's latest mutilation victim...

But you're never gonna know. Not now. You're not getting a second chance.

Because this is NIGHT CITY.

Does Multiple File format include a PDF of the book? I was confused about what it means

Can you enable a preview so I can see the quality of the text? Is this a scan? Is it readable? I saw a print copy of Tales of the Forlorn Hope at a local game store and it was unreadable. The text was so blurry that I could not read it!

Not including a preview was an oversite. Sorry about that. We've enabled it. The book is a scan of the original, as this was done long enough ago that technology makes anything other than that or a completely new layout impossible.

This is a bargain, the only reason I'm not buying it is...I have the original book from back in the day sat on the bookshelf next to me, for Cyberpunk, it's a damn good resource for GM's to us for games.

The original book was not, no. It was always black and white with a color cover.

"We’ve noticed the Night City sourcebook for Cyberpunk 2020 is currently selling for an obscene amount of money at a certain online retailer. Please don’t spend that sort of money! We’ve made it a priority to get the book back into print as soon as possible, where it will sell for $30. If you can’t wait to immerse yourself in the ambiance of the cyberpunk city of tomorrow, consider purchasing the PDF currently for sale at DriveThruRPG. At just $9, its an excellent value."

Can I cyber-echo Matt's sentiment here?

We need the guide in print! :)

I wish this book was available as POD. It's very difficult to find a used copy anywhere.

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.
