The Sorcery and Steam Bundle, curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch:
Sorcery. Steam. Ghosts. A touch of romance. Mythic creatures. Some truly violent bad guys. And one little black cat.
We have everything in this bundle that a fantasy reader could want.
We have magic in all forms, from the magic that gods use when they come to Earth to magic that a familiar inspires when she helps a man with limited ability keep his spells fresh. We have vampires and werewolves. We have parasols and tea and lovely chocolates. We have FBI agents facing killers and assassins who can kill with a blink.
A fantastic story for every mood, and steampunk. Not enough to call this a steampunk bundle, but enough that we could add "steam" to our subtitle. (We can also add "steam" for another reason. One or two of these books have steamy scenes, that have nothing to do with engines and everything to do with heat between humans.)
We also have new releases in this bundle. Usually writers contribute the first books in a series or a book that fits the theme but has been published for a long time. Four writers—Dayle A. Dermatis, Catherine Banks, Michelle Fox, and me— decided to put their most recent book in the bundle. In fact, Catherine and Michelle have contributed books exclusive to StoryBundle. You can't get those books anywhere else!

Specters in the Storm by Pauline Baird Jones
"The author's vivid descriptions of the storm, lightning, specters and the evil being that resides in the storm give this tale a real horror story feel. The horror and dimensional time travel aspects of the story remind me a bit of Baird's Steampunked. Specters in the Storm is a stand alone story though and it was well worth spending a few hours out in the elements!"– Whiskey with my Book
Valkyrie's Vengeance & Hunger Moon - Ragnarok: Doom of the Gods 1-2 by Melissa Snark
"This is a fantasy novel which is sure to capture the hearts of many readers. Well-developed characters and an intricate plot are just the start. The strongest aspect of this novel is, I believe, the merging of two very different worlds into a complete and exciting whole."– Long and Short Reviews
Familiarity by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"Rusch's short fiction is golden."– Kansas City Star
Poison or Protect by Gail Carriger
"Add in several delightful female friendships, a bit of drama and this is another delightful story from this world. All in all a rollicking fun time!"– For What It's Worth
Alys of Asgard by Catherine Banks
"Catherine Banks has created an intriguing new series!!! Norse Mythology has been neatly paired with Greek Mythology and the result is sheer brilliance!!! Every twist and turn in this curvy tale was both surprising and so very refreshingly entertaining!"– Amazon Review
For Love or Vengeance by Caridad Pineiro
"Pineiro has changed the face of paranormal fiction..."– Fresh Fiction
Blood and Magic by Ann Gimpel
"1860s history never seemed so alive with action, drama, suspense and romance as it does in this book. I loved it. A little paranormal, a lot crazy and a smidge of the mysterious. More please."– Goodreads 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.
