The 2024 Pride Bundle - Curated by Catherine Lundoff and Melissa Scott:

It's Pride again, and time for another queer-themed bundle to celebrate the community. Once again, the hardest part has been narrowing down the field: there are so many writers out there creating intelligent, nuanced, queer SF/F that it's incredibly hard to choose among them.

Because it's Pride, though, we looked for books that show queerness in all its complexity, with stories that range from pure adventure to profoundly serious. What you won't find is stories where queerness is purely a doomed and tragic fate, or ones in which it is purely evil. These are stories that showcase the many and complex forms that queerness takes — the many ways that we have chosen to be.

SELECTED REVIEWS

Black from the Future by Stephanie Andrea Allen & Lauren Cherelle

"Within this revelatory 22-piece anthology of prose and poetry across the horror, fantasy, and science fiction genres, editors Allen and Cherelle have gathered works by some of the best and boldest voices in African-American speculative writing... There's something for everyone in this outstanding anthology."

– Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review)

Sooner or Later Everything Falls into the Sea by Sarah Pinsker

"Sarah Pinsker's debut short story collection is speculative and strange, exploring such wide-ranging scenarios as a young man receiving a prosthetic arm with its own sense of identity, a family welcoming an AI replicate of their late Bubbe into their home, or an 18th century seaport town trying to survive a visit by a pair of sirens — all while connecting them in a book that feels cohesive. The stories are insightful, funny, and imaginative, diving into the ways humans might invite technology into their relationships."

– Arianna Rebolini, Buzzfeed

The Lever by Mark Salzwedel

"There is as much wonder here as there is fear, and that careful mixture made this book a special read for me."

РUlysses Grant Dietz, queerscifi.com

The Deep And Shining Dark by Juliet Kemp

"A rich and memorable tale of political ambition, family and magic, set in an imagined city that feels as vibrant as the characters inhabiting it."

– Aliette de Bodard, Nebula-award winning author of The Tea Master and the Detective

Through the Doors of Oblivion by Michael G. Williams

"For a slender urban fantasy to be so rich in philosophy, social commentary, humor, and evil tech bros is not something I've encountered in my decades of reading out-there stuff. Not to mention what a brilliant love letter to the city of San Francisco this book is."

– Booknerdsbraindump

A Feast for Flies by Leigh Harlen

"It's not just the queerness, but the way characters interact with each other. The tensions of an antagonistic relationship, the pull of a romantic relationship, the honesty of a deep, true friendship. All I want in life is to hang out with Marlyn and Zira and Bea at Marlyn's bar, drinking beers and telling stories."

– Alex Brown, Locus Magazine

Champion of the Scarlet Wolf - Books 1-2 by Ginn Hale

"Hale (Lord of the White Hell) draws the reader into a troubled fantasy world with lush descriptions, an innovative magic system, and well-realized worldbuilding."

– Publishers Weekly

We're Here - The Best Queer Speculative Fiction 2022 by Naomi Kanakia and series editor Charles Payseur

"Kanakia (We Are Totally Normal) and series editor Payseur bolster Neon Hemlock's reputation as a champion of queer speculative fiction with these 19 praiseworthy shorts…The message that queer people are here and will continue to be here in all possible futures resounds."

– Publishers Weekly

Off-Time Jive by A.Z. Louise

"Magic? Detectives? Impossible romantic longing? A.Z. Louise writes a joy of a book, transporting you to an alternate Harlem Renaissance, where the unlikely and the extraordinary rub shoulders. A great mystery, but an even greater exploration of memorable characters sure to capture your heart."

– E. Catherine Tobler, author of The Necessity of Stars

Little Nothing by Dee Holloway

"may be a novella, but it packs plenty of bold, swashbuckling derring-do, with enough mystery, romance, and magic to satisfy any type of queer reader."

– Keith John Glaeske of Out in Print Queer Book Reviews

A Death at the Dionysus Club by Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold

"the puzzles are intriguing, the perils are exciting, and it's great how the lovers end up standing for and standing by each other. Anyone who enjoyed Death by Silver should definitely enjoy A Death at the Dionysius Club, too."

– Review Trish Matson of the Skiffy and Fanty Show

Rabbits of the Apocalypse by Benny Lawrence

"This story is brilliant, dark, so dark, but also hilarious. You can read—or, even better, listen to—Rabbits of the Apocalypse for the enjoyment factor alone or use it to entertain your brain cogs. Either way, if you're into speculative fiction and love a cynical MC, look no further."

– Jude in the Stars

Pluralities by Avi Silver

"A gleaming, quicksilver flash of a book. Silver's writing is funny and tender, and that self-aware humor manages to keep the book's earnestness from turning twee, while the prose is often shockingly beautiful."

– Amal El-Mohtar, New York Times Book Review and co-author, with Max Gladstone, of This is How You Lose the Time War

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.
