Boss Fight Books: Final Fantasy VI by Sebastian Deken

"If you're at all interested in video game music or are a huge fan of FFVI and Uematsu, then this latest release from Boss Fight Books is absolutely worth your time. [...] I fell in love with FFVI all over again and relived it through the music because of this book."

– RPGFan

The Legend of Argus: The Complete History of Rygar by Brian Riggsbee

"It's the kind of thing you might expect from a book about Mario or Samus, but not so much from one about a semi-forgotten shirtless hero carrying, as foreword author Kurt Kalata calls it, "a gigantic spiked yo-yo." And it's fantastic."

– Matt Leone | Special Projects Editor, Polygon

Embed With Games by Cara Ellison

"Cara Ellison's writing is consistently amusing, perceptive, honest and touching. Also: It's got games in it. Now buy this book."

– Charlie Brooker

Dialogue Box: Oral Histories of Video Games by David L. Craddock

"The scale of this is amazing. Holy shit, seven months of interviews, and it just shows everywhere."

– 2018 Kunkel Awards Nominee: Excellence in Feature Writing

Football Manager, One Day at a Time by Richard Moss

"It is Richard's writing style that makes the piece a compelling read...Juan Day becomes a vivid and down to earth character within a virtual world, and the players of Lincoln start to grow on the reader, really personifying what are ultimately statistical icons."

– Dan Bolas, Soccer Gaming

The Secret History of Mac Gaming by Richard Moss

"The Mac is typically the last machine you think of when it comes to playing games, but this fascinating read from Richard Moss will help you change your mind…we'll be very surprised if you're not tempted to discover a little more about this interesting range of computers as a result. We were."

– Retro Gamer Magazine

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.
