bundles


Storybundle has once gain interesting bundles of books:

Gaslamp Fantasy: Take, first, a liberal dose of historical manners and mores: the grit and stench of a Victorian gutter, perhaps; the decorous charm of an eighteenth-century drawing room; the glitter and glamour, the depravity and decay of an era lit by gas light.

Add, then, the dazzle of sorcery or witchcraft, or the weirdness of the supernatural. Or, perhaps, heavy measures of both. Season with a dash of dragon, or something a little bit fey.

Mix. Bake.

Gaslamp fantasy is the result. Regency romps riotous with mages and werewolves. Psychics and dastardly dukes, vampires and Victorians. Ghosts and ghouls and Edwardian ballrooms.

In this bundle, we have it all. Take a step back in time – and deep into the imagination – with some of the best indies writing today. If you always felt like Jane Eyre really needed a vampire component, or Jane Austen would’ve been even more fun with dragons, well, we’ve got you. Dive in!

The Locked and Loaded Military SF Bundle: Whether it’s service in the galactic marines, or defending Earth from an alien invasion, or traveling with the Federation fleet to protect a new colony, Military SF always gives readers a great story.

This new Locked and Loaded Storybundle, curated by bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson, contains fifteen action-packed books across the whole range of Mil SF.

The Hollywood Horror Bundle: Ah, Hollywood! The glitz, the glamour – the monsters! For Halloween this year I thought it would be fun to collect books with some connection to Tinseltown – whether by actors, screenwriters, books about the movies or those in development to become films and TV shows. It’s a mixed bag of fabulous! But all of it unsettling in some way. As the nights draw long and the frost settles on the windows and the wind howls mercilessly outside, what better time to settle down with a blanket and read some tales dark and grim?

So join me as we take a tour through worlds of ancient rockets and the devil, black and white monsters and deep hidden fungus, of vampires, fire-breathing giant lizards, horror film survivors and, of course, a dinosaur detective. Here is a mixture of novels and intelligent non-fiction, anthologies and novellas – the full gamut of the field spelled out in stars against a silver screen.

7 days to go.

The Witches, Wands and Wanderers Bundle: I’ve always loved tales about witches. Good witches, evil witches, modern or ancient. Any sort of story you can imagine, you can probably place a witch in it, and improve it. (At least in my opinion!)

However, for this bundle, I’ve limited the genre to primarily contemporary fantasy. I wanted the reader to be able to binge on a whole bunch of different takes on witches in the modern day.

HumbleBundle has Vampire Hunter D: Discover the origins of Vampire Hunter D! You may know it from the classic film, the beloved manga, or an upcoming animated series, but the saga started back in the 80s as a series of light novels by author Hideyuki Kikuchi with illustrations by legendary artist Yoshitaka Amano. Together, they tell the story of D, a human-vampire hybrid intent on righting wrongs in a supernatural, post-apocalyptic world governed by the ruling Vampire Nobility class. Read the first 29 volumes of the epic series translated into English by Dark Horse, and help support World Central Kitchen!

The 2022 Visions of the Future bundle curated by Dean Wesley Smith:

For me, the future is a bright, hopeful place. That’s my nature. No matter how bad the news is at the moment, I tend to look at the future as a promise. Doesn’t mean the future won’t be full of problems. I am not that naïve, although sometimes my wife Kris thinks I am.

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.”

22 days to go.

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.”
