The Space Opera Odyssey Bundle, curated by Robert Jeschonek:
Will there be conflict in outer space? If humans are involved, you better believe it.
Maybe that's one reason why we love space opera so much—because we know we're just one propulsion system breakthrough away from making it a reality. As much cooperation as it will take to get out there, we know it won't take long for our spirit of competition and conflict to put us at odds with one another…and any aliens we cross paths with, as well.
As long as there are humans plying the spaceways, we know there will be pirates and criminals and hit men and mobsters and rebels. Battles will be fought over causes both noble and venal, righteous and corrupt, high-stakes and petty. Heroes and villains will grapple for control of resources, territory, secrets, hearts and minds. We will struggle every day, as we do on our homeworld, for the right to control and expand and create and become.
But oh, how much grander the backdrop will be.

The Retrieval Artist by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"Part CSI, part Blade Runner, and part hard-boiled gumshoe, the retrieval artist of the series title, one Miles Flint, would be as at home on a foggy San Francisco street in the 1940s as he is in the domed lunar colony of Armstrong City."– The Edge
The Wild Space Boxed Set by C. S. Ferguson
"If you like Firefly, Farscape, heist novels, The Maltese Falcon, The Mandelorian, or Solo (the Starwars spinoff), you will find much to enjoy in Devils and Black Sheep."– Amazon Review
Optional Retirement Plan by Chris Pourteau
•"Pourteau delivers a sci-fi yarn ... full of gallows humor with violence to match."– Kirkus Reviews
Veiled Alliances by Kevin J. Anderson
"A breakneck epic.… Kevin J. Anderson is one of the best plotters in the business."– Brandon Sanderson
Nexus by Mike Baron
"Mike Baron's Nexus may be one of the finest examples of galaxy-spanning worldbuilding in Science Fiction. Add to that a compelling cast of characters, a flawless ear for dialogue, and a genuinely thrilling story, and the result is a truly brilliant book, full stop."– James A. Owen, bestselling author of Here, There Be Dragons
Starbarian Omnibus by Robert Jeschonek
"This book was exciting and combined all the best things about science fiction with an amazing plot! The story was action-packed with spaceships, battles, and aliens, but still had relatable characters who I really cared about. There are a few really good plot twists that I won't spoil but made me literally gasp. If you love action and excitement I would highly recommend this story!"– Ingrid Miller, Reviewer, Pittsburgh, PA
Realm City by Ron Collins
"Ron Collins is one of our best hard science fiction writers—a novel from him is a major event. Enjoy!"– Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-Winning Author of Quantum Night

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.
