From curator Kevin J. Anderson: Science Fiction is the literature that always set my imagination on fire, sparking my sense of wonder, taking me on adventures into the future, off to the most distant parts of the universe, to alien cultures, and the frontiers of the human mind.
I'm curating The Adventure Sci-FI Bundle for StoryBundle that contains fourteen great books guaranteed to set your imagination on fire—for only a little more than a dollar a book.
With StoryBundle, you name your own price for this grab bag of Adventure SF books. For as little as $8 you get the basic bundle of seven titles, and for as little as $16 you get them all. A portion of the money goes to charity—the Challenger Learning Center for Space Science Education—and, other than a small admin percentage, the rest of the earnings is directly divided among the titles.
You can read more about how the bundle was assembled here, and make sure to click on each cover for reviews, a preview and a personal note from our curator!
Darkship Thieves by Sarah A. Hoyt
"Exceptional, wonderful and enormously entertaining."– Booklist
Fire with Fire by Charles E. Gannon
"Vivid. . . Battle sequences mingle with thought-provoking exegesis . . ."– Publishers Weekly
Her Brother's Keeper by Mike Kupari
"After cowriting Dead Six and Swords of Exodus with Larry Correia, Kupari makes his solo debut with this space opera that is bound to attract fans of Mike Shepherd's Kris Longknife series or Elizabeth Moon's Vatta's War books. An excellent choice for both teen and adult sf readers."– Library Journal
Buried Deep by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"This time, Rusch ups the ante with a grand act of Sfnal imagination in her creation of the Disty."– Locus
Buried Deep by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"Exciting….The audience will find this science fiction mystery an excellent whodunit."– Midwest Book Review
2113: Stories Inspired by the Music of Rush by Kevin J. Anderson and John McFetridge
"It is a satisfying, humbling, and inspiring book. . . Well, of course, it's perfect. You definitely need to add this thing of perfection to your own collection."– Progarchy
The Juniper Wars: Dandelion Iron, Part One by Aaron Michael Ritchey
"Ritchey's first book in The Juniper Wars series, Dandelion Iron, is a refreshing, fast-paced, post-apocalyptic novel. The characters are very well developed and quite diverse. The setting is described so vividly that you feel as though you are actually there. Being a young adult novel, it has some teenage angst and romance thrown into the mix. 5 out of 5 stars."– Amazon Review
Oshenerth by Alan Dean Foster
"Action packed into an alien landscape. Once more Alan Dean Foster delivers a page turner. Keep writing Mr Foster. Please."– Amazon Review
Timeweb by Brian Herbert
"I found this novel an excellent example of science fiction combined with a warm human story that brings adventure interwoven with romance and presented with well developed characters."– Amazon Review
Tales of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson
"I had just finished reading Mentats of Dune when I came across this gem. I have all 19 Dune novels, and have actually read them multiple times. I love the world created by Frank Herbert and so faithfully carried on by his son Brian and Kevin Anderson. Tales of Dune fits right into that world. Little historic snippets that reveal just a bit more of the human side of this imaginary future universe. I can't wait for more!"– Amazon Review
The Worker Prince by Bryan Thomas Schmidt
"...breathes dynamic new life into the space opera genre. Rich characters, wild action, and devious plotlines collide in a thoroughly entertaining book!"– Jonathan Maberry, NYT bestselling author of Predator One and Deadlands: Ghostwalkers
The Cauldron by Jean Rabe and Gene DeWeese
Compelling from the very first page—a tangled puzzle of Identity, memory, and history that questions the very concept of 'self'.– Gail Z. Martin, bestselling author of the Deadly Curiosities and Chronicles of the Necromancer series
City of Angels by Todd J. McCaffrey
"This book is by far Todd's best work yet. He's developed very relatable characters and crafted a very fast paced book. It's a very interesting study, watching an artificial intelligence develop, and then spread out its capacity. So many books in the past kept AIs as one singular place and personality, but Todd McCaffrey has created something truly unique, and likely fortuitous."– Amazon Review

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.
