Fantastic New Bundle of Bundles

SF&F BINGE READERS BUNDLE… has done something special. It has put together a group of bundles in a bundle. And kept the price at normal levels.

Since I am writing a Thunder Mountain novel right now, it is great luck that in this bundle is a bundle of my first three Thunder Mountain novels. You want to know the world I am writing in now, grab this.

And you’ll also get some other amazing books. Including a bundle of three different Fiction River fantasy volumes. If you haven’t sampled the amazing work and writers in Fiction River, this would be a good place to do it. That alone is worth the entire cost.

You also get three books in Kris’s diving series if you haven’t tried those yet. (You haven’t read the Diving Series?? Holy smokes, you are missing some of the best science fiction written these days.)

Also, don’t forget to toss in some money for one of Kris and my favorite things, They do stunningly good work and are worth supporting.

Let me give you what Kris said about this bundle. She moderated it and it was her crazy idea in the first place.


The Bundle Bundle

-Curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Binge readers! You wanted summer reading, right? You hate the sixty seconds it takes to download the next book in a series you just discovered. You want to turn the virtual page and get back into the story.

Well, then, do I have a deal for you. A bundle of bundles. Here’s your summer reading in one gigantic package, wrapped in a virtual bow.

Okay. There’s no bow, no wrapping. Just a wealth of great fiction.

Usually, StoryBundle provides bundles of books, individual titles by individual authors who band together to provide a great reading bundle.

This time, individual authors and editors have banded together with bundled books to give you the deal of the summer.

By my count (and I might be a bit math-challenged), you get 19 standalone novels in this bundle. Some of the novels are long, and some of them are short. But 19 novels! Plus more short stories than I’m willing to count, wrapped in 7 anthologies and a gigantic bundle that is bigger than your average anthology.

What kind of fiction will you find here? Science fiction and fantasy only, but written in such a way as to blur the lines of genre. You’ll find books in which high-tech gaming meets the world of faerie, books which hack reality (and involve crime lords!), time travel to the Old West, wreck diving in space, space pirates (!), librarian witches (complete with feline familiars), and the Fates—who just got fired.

And that’s just the novels. The short stories cover the entire fantasy genre (with a bit of sf). They take us back to fairie, give us great urban fantasy, (sometimes on motorcycles), and provide a short introduction to some of the best writers working today, including Seanan McGuire, Dave Farland, Jane Yolen, and Esther M. Friesner.

The bundles also form mini bundles of their own. If you like adventurous science fiction, start with these bundles: The Science Officer Omnibus, and The Diving Series Starter Bundle. If you had a tough few months and want books that will make you smile, start with The Washington Witches, The Thunder Mountain Series Starter Kit, and The Fates Trilogy. If you want to focus on gaming or the digital universe, try The Digital Sea Trilogy and The Feyguard Books. And if you’re in a short story mood, we have the Fiction River Fantasy Bundle, the first year of the acclaimed Uncollected Anthology, and Faerie Summer.

I’ve been excited about this bundle since I came up with the idea months ago. If you like science fiction and fantasy, if you love binge reading, if you like discovering the best writers working in the genre today, then this is the bundle for you.

And one last thing. We always bundle in a charity, so you have the option of giving a few dollars to a worthy cause. This bundle’s worthy cause is Able Gamers. (I figured it was a good fit, considering our books cover high-tech gaming and a digital sea.) Able Gamers helps people with disabilities participate in the world of high tech gaming, by customizing equipment. Gaming has become one of the most social activities in our world, and this enables everyone to participate.

If you buy this bundle, you’re saving more than a hundred dollars on your book habit. So toss a few of those dollars at Able Gamers on the way out the door.

Thanks for bundling with us—and enjoy! (I know I will.) – Kristine Kathryn Rusch
