Curated by Kevin J. Anderson

We've got enough of what scares you. I've put together a monstrous collection of books for, a dozen tales of werewolves, zombies, dinosaurs, bloodthirsty serial killers, vampires, and more. Who wants candy for Halloween?—this is a better treat.

I've done quite a few bundles, so you probably already know how it works. Pay whatever you feel the books are worth, and you decide how much of the money goes to the authors, to a charity (the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, in this case), or to admin to keep running. Pay a minimum of $5 and get the basic six books—that's half a dozen monsters. For $15 or more, you get all twelve books. They are delivered immediately, in whichever ebook format you prefer. DRM free.

Monsters unleashed: You want werewolves? Check out Julie Frost's Pack Dynamics and Douglas Smith's The Wolf at the End of the World. Prehistoric monsters? Try Jurassic Dead by David A. Sakmyster and Mammoth Dawn by Kevin J. Anderson and Gregory Benford.

You want occult forces and investigations? We have The Love-Haight Case Files by Jean Rabe and Don Bingle, Working Stiff: The Cases of Dan Shamble, Zombie, P.I. by Kevin J. Anderson, and For This Is Hell by Aaron Rosenberg and Steven Savile. Horrific killers that make Hannibal Lecter look like a lightweight? There's Empty Rooms by Jeffrey J. Mariotte, Helmet Head by Michael A. Baron. Or just plain scary weirdness? Matt Forbeck's Monster Academy, Josh Vogt's Enter the Janitor, and Keith R.A. deCandido's Cayo Hueso.
