THE BUNDORAN BUDDIES SCI-FI BUNDLE

Bundle_198_cover

Science fiction is our conversation with the future. That's the philosophy of Bundoran Press Publishing House. But how can you have a conversation without friends? That's why I'm curating this twelve-book science fiction bundle for www.storybundle.com, made up of eleven novels and one short story collection from established greats and rising stars. Half of the books were published by the Press and the other six come from some fabulous authors who have been our friends and supporters for years. As always, at StoryBundle, you decide what the books are worth and a portion of the proceeds go to charity.

The Bundoran Buddies Book Bundle includes a never before published collection of selected stories from Hugo and Nebula nominated author, James Alan Gardner, available no where else.

Award winners and nominees abound in this collection. Hugo and Nebula award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer offers up his genetics-based near future novel, Frameshift, while Arthur C Clarke Award finalist, Alison Sinclair, presents the first book of her SF Plague Confederacy series: Breakpoint: Nereis. Aurora Award winning Edward Willett gives us a rousing space opera with Right to Know.

If your taste runs to near-future, Ramez Naam's mind-expanding and globe covering Nexus is right up your alley. Or you might prefer, Madelaine Ashby's vN, a gripping tale of designer self-replicating robots meant to both thrill and terrify.

At the other end of the temporal spectrum, we have military space opera, Valor's Choice, from multi-award-winning author Tanya Huff – still producing best sellers after over two decades in the field or Stars Like Cold Fire from relative newcomer, Brent Nichols, both of whose novels from Bundoran Press have garnered Aurora Award nominations. Jennifer Rahn's The Cyanide Process gives us a fun romp in a hard science thriller that includes robot ninjas and space Vikings.

But wait, there's more. Fall from Earth is a far-future first contact novel set in an empire based on Chinese philosophies and traditions while Matt Hughes mystery SF novel, Template, spans multiple worlds and human cultures smeared across half the galactic arm. Mystery lovers will also enjoy Al Onia's diesel punk noir, Transient City, with one of the most unusual and engaging detectives you will ever meet.

The Bundoran Buddies Book bundle only runs for three weeks. It's a great deal and a chance to pick up books by some of your favorite SF writers and discover some new favorites at the same time. – Hayden Trenholm
