The Space Travelers Bundle, curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch:
When most people think of science fiction, they think of space, that final frontier. They think of traveling in space or living in space or being in space. Eventually, they come back to Earth and think about things like time travel or futuristic gadgets, but ask the normal person what they imagine when someone says "science fiction," and they respond "space."
I know my love for sf came from my love for space. I discovered both at the same time. I watched the Apollo program throughout my childhood, and the same year I discovered Star Trek, I also watched human beings land on the Moon. That fired my imagination so firmly that I think nothing can shake those two things apart. Space is something, for me, to look forward to.
Space is hope.
Space isn't always hope, not for the people (and creatures) involved in this Space Traveler bundle. Sometimes space is adventure. Sometimes space is scary. And often space is fascinating—like nothing we've seen before.

Blastoff! by Robert Jeschonek
"If you like fantasy presented by an engaging narrator with a unique and clever voice, this is an author you might want to watch out for."– Amazon Reviewer
Clouds of Phoenix by Michèle Laframboise
"An excellent introduction to Science Fiction and to a number of questions about the environment."– Hélène Marchetto, Les Vagabonds Du Rêve
Partners in Crime - The Misha Kif Chronicles #1 by Leigh Saunders
"…Steal one thing, betray one person to another, steal another item to trade for someone, rescue a person, go off to steal another item… it's great, and each situation is new and interesting…"– Amazon Review
Fractured Stars by Lindsay Buroker
"I enjoyed this well paced science fiction novel with a well done slow burn romance. I liked the writing style of the author and this was a great read. McCall made for a great main character and her autism gave her an unique touch and felt realistically done."– Lola of LolasReviews.com
Incident on a Small Colony by Kristine Smith
"The tech stuff is neat, the atmosphere tense, with vivid description and convincing detail, the action pretty much non-stop, and the emotional tension builds inexorably. Three whammies before the end, all different: the thing that makes memorable stories is not just nifty skiffy, great pacing, but the electricity between human beings."– Tangent Magazine
Duplicate Effort by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"…the mystery is unpredictable and absorbing and the characters are interesting and sympathetic."– Blastr
Fiction River Presents: Space Travelers by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
