You know them, you love them. You anxiously await their blockbuster films, television series, and comic books. Little did you know there are other superheroes out there, waiting to protect men and women from the darkness the hides in the metaphorical closets of young and old alike. These superheroes are flawed, different, living the shadows of their mega blockbuster brethren – but they're there. The Indie Superhero Bundle.
In this collection you have superstar and rising star authors alike – each ready to clobber you with a different take on the genre. From Mur Lafferty (winner of the John W. Campbell award for Best New Writer), to writers on the rise such as Joshua Mays, Michael Bailey, Charlie Wood, Adam Oster, and other stars of the indie author circuit. In the words of our curator, "Every book I read was a keeper; but in the end, I wanted stories that went beyond the usual hack and slash. I wanted to find stories that unfolded with a sense of grace and power like you'd never thought possible in the genre."
I, Crimsonstreak by Matt Adams
"...Adams's greatest strength here is the characters' chemistry and dialogue, with many of the lines being used for well done humor."– Comic Attack
Shero by Jack Wallen
"This is certainly one of the most delightful books I've read in 2011. No dodging into phone booths for this supershero, who makes Spiderman and Superman look downright dowdy. Shero is always well-dressed and prepared for any crisis. This girl knows who she is and is prepared to kick ass to prove it. Only the most mean-spirited (and Shero knows who they are) could fail to fall in love with this feisty character with killer nail polish. Long may she strut her stuff."– CM Barret
The Strike Trilogy by Charlie Wood
"An excellent read. If you're looking for a great adventure with a superhero twist, this is it."– Melissa's Midnight Musings
The Legend of Buddy Hero by Adam Oster
"Oster has crafted one of the most interesting villains I've seen in a long time."– Ken Mooney
Action Figures by Michael Bailey
"This was a nice fresh read from all the seriousness that comes with some of the books I have been reading…I seriously loved this book!"– A Simple Taste for Reading
Supervillainous by Mike Leon
"This is possibly one of the most fun reads I have had in a long time. Someone who would have looked at me reading this book would have thought that I did not have all my mental facilities. I wore a stupid, vacant grin, and would cackle laughter every other page."– The Nerdy Bomb
Playing For Keeps by Mur Lafferty
"I was really impressed with it. [Mur is] the doyenne of scifi podcasting."– Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net

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.
