THE SFWA MAGIC AND MAYHEM BUNDLE

The SFWA Magic and Mayhem Bundle - Curated by the Self-Publishing Committee of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA)

Every fantasy lover knows the basic rules of magic. It always comes at a cost and it never quite gives the expected results. Then it should come as no surprise that the magic in our stories has many explosive consequences! Demolish your way through fourteen novels that span the sub-genres of fantasy while showcasing magic-induced mayhem, from the hilarious to the horrible and everything in between.

SFWA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting, advancing, and supporting science fiction and fantasy writing in the United States and elsewhere. This year the SFWA Self-Publishing Committee cast a wider net when seeking submissions and received substantially more novels to evaluate than ever before. We enjoyed sorting through so many excellent books but faced a doubly difficult task as we narrowed our selections down to these fourteen special stories.

Some of our favorites in this Bundle:

Darkmage – ML Spencer's award-winning debut novel filled with epic battles, flawed heroes, and a brutal struggle
Playing with Fire – R.J. Blain's snarky romantic comedy with a body count, featuring a fire-breathing unicorn on a mission of destruction
Phaethon – Rachel Sharp's tech fantasy that weaves computer hackers, faeries, and corporate greed into a twisted tale
Ragnarok Unwound – Kristin Jacques's story of a young woman tangled up in a prophecy that sets her off to save the world with the help of a brownie, a Valkyrie, and the goddess of death herself
Cutie and the Beast – E.J. Russell's novel pairing a former Queen's Champion of Faerie's Seelie Court with a cheeky yet adorable human temp worker, as they prove, once again, that when fae consort with humans, it never ends well
9 Tales of Raffalon – Matthew Hughes's intriguing mosaic novel combining nine stories of an enterprising thief as he grapples with crooked guild masters, ghosts, spies, ogres, and a talented amateur assassin
