Storybundle has two very interesting bundles:

Twisted Fairytales: “Fairytales are near and dear to my heart – but TWISTED tales are even better! As a reader, I love it when authors take the old and familiar and fold it into strange new shapes, flipping the roles of hero and villain, adding unexpected romance, and blending together strands of different classic stories to make something altogether new and enthralling. So when I had the opportunity to curate this collection, I leaped on it like a starving grandma on a poor innocent wolf…

In this StoryBundle you’ll find eleven thrilling twists on Cinderella, Beauty & the Beast, Rumpelstiltskin, Alice in Wonderland, Mulan, and more, from award-winning and New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors, which includes an anthology packed with eerie retellings of your favorite tales.”

And 200 Sci-Fi Worlds: “We’ve included fifteen sci-fi anthologies and collections showcasing 139 authors and more than 200 individual stories, but it’s available for a limited time only! This StoryBundle features a wide variety of themes – fighting climate change, exploring the far reaches of the galaxy, future crime, hopepunk, sci-fi zombies, space marines, exosapiens, LGBTQ+ heroes, and so much more. With 139 authors, chances are that you’ll find some new writers to love.”
