Science fiction can take you from one side of the universe to the other, and an infinite number of ideas in between. That all can’t fit in one StoryBundle—but this new set, available July 2 through July 23, covers a broad landscape of ideas.

StoryBundle's Sci-Fi Bundle is curated by #1 international bestselling SF author Kevin J. Anderson, and includes his own novel Hopscotch, which he considers one of his best novels. “SF has often dealt with the idea of two characters swapping bodies and dealing with the consequences,” Anderson says. “But imagine a future where everybody can do it, all the time, changing bodies and lives like changing clothes.” Anderson is best known for his work in the Dune universe with Brian Herbert, in the Star Wars, X-Files, Batman & Superman universes, as well as his own original epics Saga of Seven Suns and Terra Incognita. He set the Guinness World Record for largest single-author book signing.

Those six novels comprise the Sci-Fi Bundle. Name your own price, and get a large chunk of the imaginative universe. But those who choose to pay more than a minimum of $10 receive two bonus novels as well: The Stars in Shroud, a hard-to-find early novel by SF master Gregory Benford, who has won or been nominated for multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards, and an amazing find—High-Opp, a never-before-published complete novel by Frank Herbert (author of DUNE), an edgy dystopia of class warfare.

Anderson, who put the bundle together, says, “I picked one of my own best, then tracked down a cadre of innovative bestselling and award-winning writers to make this a damned impressive showcase.”

The initial titles in the Sci-Fi Bundle are:

  • Hopscotch by Kevin J. Anderson
  • In Hero Years...I'm Dead by Michael A. Stackpole
  • On My Way to Paradise by David Farland
  • Santiago by Mike Resnick
  • Swarm by B. V. Larson
  • The Disappeared by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
  • Lightspeed Magazine, June 2013 issue

If you pay more than the bonus price of just $10, you get all six of the regular books, plus two bonus titles, which include:

  • High-Opp by Frank Herbert
  • The Stars in Shroud by Gregory Benford

The bundle is available for a very limited time only, via StoryBundle, and allows for easy reading on computers, mobile devices and Kindles via file transfer, email, or other methods, with multiple DRM-free formats (.epub and .mobi) available for each book.

It's also super easy to give the gift of reading with StoryBundle, thanks to our gift cards—which allow you to send someone a code that they can redeem for any future StoryBundle bundle—and timed delivery, which allows you to control exactly when your recipient will get the gift of StoryBundle.
