Best way to scan scifi and fantasy?
I have a bunch of science fiction and fantasy novels I would like to scan to make ebooks out of. However, due to the nature of the books, with lots of either made up or foreign words I can see most OCRs having a problem. Right now I only have an older flatbed scanner, so I plan on getting a new one. I just don't know what format to use. Would scanning into PDF be better, or is there an OCR that is better at handling this kind of stuff better then another?

I know it would be a bit of a chore, but you could try adding the various words into your dictionary as they come up so that they will be recognized properly. I think most of the currently available software is going to at least flag unusual words as incorrect.
