FeaturesA Novel of Multiple Personality By: Tom Marshall, "A chilling yarn... difficult to put down." - The Montreal Gazette
Long DescriptionLaird Allan Carter is in jail for a rape he can't remember committing. Until his conviction, he seemed to be a happily married man in love with his wife. Now he wonders if his migraine headaches and occassional black-outs may have something to do with his cruel fate. Desperate, he meets with a prison psychiatrist, Herb Delaney. Over time the young doctor discovers that there is not just one Laird Allan Carter, but many! Unbeknownst to Laird or Delaney, Carter's estranged sister Elaine also suffers from a multiple-personality discorder. However, as "Madame Eleanor," she has managed to channel her "voices" into a successful career as a spiritualist and medium. And one of her clients is Herb Delaney's unhappy wife, Alice! CHANGELINGS is a chilling novel of gripping psychological drama and almost unbearable suspense. As the lives of Laird, Delaney, Elaine, and Alice begin to converge, the characters fight to become whole --- or die in the process.

A Data Matrix code is a two-dimensional barcode make up of blocks of black and white modules put together to make either a square or rectangular pattern. The information to be encoded can be text or raw data.

Normally, data size is from a few bytes up to 1,556 bytes. The length of the data depends on the symbol dimension used. To make sure the data can be read even when the pattern is slightly damaged, error correction codes are added which increase symbol strength. A Data Matrix symbol can store up to 2,335 alphanumeric characters. Here is a sample you can scan.

Barcode Data Matrix

Data Matrix symbols are rectangular in shape and usually square. As more data is added, modules are put together to allow for the data and error correction. Each module can be identified by the "L" shaped black line that runs down the left and across the bottom of each module. In the sample shown above, there are four modules. These "L" shaped sections are known as the "finder pattern". The top and right border of each module are made up of alternating light and dark blocks. Light blocks represent 0 (zero) and the dark blocks represent 1 (one). These are known as the "timing pattern". All of the blocks in the middle of each module make up the data and check codes. The entire pattern can range in size from 8x8 to 144x144 in size.
