Simplicissimus Ebook Museum

Dear readers and customers,

the digitalisation revolutionised how readers consume books. Thus the term eBook was born, an abbreviation for electronic book.

Today, most of us will have such a book reader in some kind of form: be it through specialised devices from online retailers, or simply built in into their operating system via apps on a smartphone and/or tablet.

There are some sources too with which integrating large libraries is convenient to get those eBooks, such as the Project Gutenberg. However, sometimes this can be not enough. There’s also the chance that your research, be it private or academic, includes something else as the Western canon, which the Gutenberg project very thoroughly provides.

Some lesser known sources are sometimes available on the web, two of which we want to present to you today.

  • the first one is http://libgen.rs/.
    This very minimalistic search engine will let you search for non-fiction/sci-tech; fiction; scientific articles or magazines
    Afterwards you can download them directly, or view them on the web
    There are search parameters for ISBN, title, authors, etc. too, in case you know already what you are looking for
    This is also an academic tip in case you need your money at the end of the month more for groceries than for written stuff on paper: you will be able to use this resource for University too

  • the second one is a bit more fancy: https://1lib.ch/
    You can switch here between a general search or a fulltext search, the first of course also with ISBN, author, and so on
    Also provides an entry with book covers if you’re on the hunt
    From what we saw on the detail pages, eBooks are in the popular epub format (in which our eBooks are sold too) and can be sent directly to some devices or via Email
    In sum you can look up over 8.6 million books and over 84 million articles
    Should be useable for academic research also

And last but not least: of course you can also find eBooks directly by us, if you need cyberpunk and web history reasearch for instance: eBooks by AETHYX MEDIAE.

Happy reading and have a nice day,
the aethyx staff

You will also notice that part I to III is available regularly through Amazon now.

The release of the whole hexalogy will take longer as we intended.

Originally we wanted to release all six books and shut down the website cipha.net until the end of june 2013. But as of now we try to release these ebooks until the end of the year.

But this is a good sign: It shows that we have work. 🙂 So nothing to be concerned about. We are an independent publishing house, such things are common. 😉

Happy reading! Looking forward to your feedback!

Kindest regards,
the aethyx staff

This sets a new milestone for our young publishing house: Our first eBook releases are out!

As you may have already read, our underground text project http://cipha.net will cease to exist in 2013.

This is the end of an era: 9 hard years of underground blogging, several design updates and a difficult platform transformation from Greymatter to WordPress in 2006; these are just some of the steps that had to be taken over the years.

But, fear not: The texts, 2.100 of them, will be preserved!

The first trilogy sums up 1.050 entries and they are already available, for a moderate price. See the following list for more information:

These eBooks are all DRM-free. No strings attached, you can remix all of them, just name the source.

Also, Xinxii is just the beginning. They reside in Berlin and are specialists in publishing eBooks for independent authors and indie publishers. Our next step is to transfer them to the Google Play Store, but up to this date it isn’t possible to upload them via their Java uploader.

The other three books will be available in spring or early summer 2013. So stay tuned.

Best wishes and enjoy reading,
the aetyhx-staff

[Update, 07/16/13]

As of now these Ebooks _are_ finally available via Google Play. Please check the links for each book accordingly.
