The SF&F Binge Reader Bundle, curated by award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch: 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.

The Digital Sea Complete Box Set by Thomas K. Carpenter
"The Digital Sea is one part Neuromancer, one part Matrix, and three parts pure Carpenter."– Brink Reviews
The Washington Witches Series, Volumes 1-3 by Mindy Klasky
"About Girl's Guide to Witchcraft: This is an irresistible tale of power and love, friendship and acceptance. The main character's constant and often rambling internal dialogue is surprisingly charming and insightful, endearing readers to her playful quirkiness and private insecurities…. "– Romantic Times
The Diving Series Starter Bundle by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"This is classic sci-fi, a well-told tale of dangerous exploration. The first-person narration makes the reader an eyewitness to the vast, silent realms of deep space, where even the smallest error will bring disaster. Compellingly human and technically absorbing, the suspense builds to fevered intensity, culminating in an explosive yet plausible conclusion."– RT Book Reviews (Top Pick) on Diving into the Wreck
The Fates Trilogy by Kristine Grayson
"[Simply Irresistible] is an enchanting blend of sweet romance, mythology, and magic as Grayson puts her own unique magical stamp on figures from Greek myths and fairy tales, including a deliciously over-the-top super villain and a hero who inspired the creation of Superman. And Grayson's clever, humor-tinged writing is absolutely delightful."– Booklist
The Faerie Summer Bundle by Jamie Ferguson
"I think it's harder to rank an anthology, but the variety is wonderful! I recommend this book to anyone who likes to be charmed, scared a bit, or become deeply emotionally involved with faeries."– Amazon Review
Fantasy Bundle by Fiction River
"[Fiction River] is one of the best and most exciting publications in the field today. Check out an issue and see why I say that."– Keith West, Adventures Fantastic
The Thunder Mountain Starter Bundle by Dean Wesley Smith
"Thunder Mountain by Dean Wesley Smith is one of those reads that defies genre classification. Take some romance, throw in a little bit of historical fiction and add a dash of time travel and science fiction and you have the basis for this interesting story. … The premise for Thunder Mountain is intriguing and will appeal to fans of both historical and science fiction. This is an easy, light read, and I am interested in revisiting these characters on their future adventures."– Fresh Fiction
Feyguard Books 1-3 by Anthea Sharp
"As with the original Feyland trilogy, the world-building is fantastic… The plot was so fast-paced that although I intended to only read a few chapters, I ended up finishing the whole book in one sitting."– The Mad Reviewer (Spark)

Zero DRM. There's no DRM on any of our books. None. Why? For one, we don't believe DRM actually stops people from sharing what they want to share. Second, and most importantly, we don't believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
Easy delivery. It's super convenient to get these ebooks onto your reader of choice—just download and sync. Better yet, if you have a Kindle or Kindle-enabled tablet or smartphone, we can send the books directly to your device. No computer required.
