Most of us grew up with fairy tales, of one sort or another. Almost everyone has a favorite, or a whole book of favorites. Tricky things, fairy tales; they change with the years, adapt themselves to their audience / culture, fade in one place only to reappear in a new form half a world away. They are stories of magic and enchantment; of men in the worlds of faerie (or more recently, faeries in the worlds of men); of talking animals and curses, enchanted shoes and porridge pots; of dragons and ogres and giants, quests and princesses and pixies.
Fairy tales have been inspiring and influencing the fantasy genre for many years, adding color and quirks and style – and sometimes running off, giggling, with the plot. This is a bundle full of wonder, fairytale-fashion. Well-loved stories come up new in Christine Pope’s Ashes of Roses and the multi-author anthology Once Upon a Kiss. The darker side of the fairy tale comes to the fore in Gwynn White & Erin St Pierre’s Queen of Extinction. Talking animals, witches, damsels and royalty predominate in T. Kingfisher’s quirky tale The Raven and the Reindeer, and Alethea Kontis’s Trixter. Charlotte English offers a mish-mash of magic markets, wayward boots and faerie royalty in Faerie Fruit and Bessie Bell and the Goblin King. And Anthea Sharp and I mix fairy-tale lore with the modern world in Feyland and Faery Unexpected.
This bundle of nine superb books offers a complete banquet of magic, witchcraft, enchantment and trickery for a fine feast of reading!

- Queen of Extinction by Gwynn White and Erin St. Pierre

What are these novels about? Here’s the concept:
Faeries are an enduring fable. How do various authors portray them? Cute little pixies … tricky, but harmless? Lovely fairy godmothers … benevolent and wise? Or a beautiful, but deadly race older than humanity and approached at your peril?
Enter the realm of Fae with this bundle of ten fantasy novels and see how the fair folk have chosen to reveal themselves to each of our authors.

The Bundle Bundle – Curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Binge readers! You wanted summer reading, right? You hate the sixty seconds it takes to download the next book in a series you just discovered. You want to turn the virtual page and get back into the story.
Well, then, do I have a deal for you. A bundle of bundles. Here’s your summer reading in one gigantic package, wrapped in a virtual bow.
Okay. There’s no bow, no wrapping. Just a wealth of great fiction.
Usually, StoryBundle provides bundles of books, individual titles by individual authors who band together to provide a great reading bundle.
This time, individual authors and editors have banded together with bundled books to give you the deal of the summer.
By my count (and I might be a bit math-challenged), you get 19 standalone novels in this bundle. Some of the novels are long, and some of them are short. But 19 novels! Plus more short stories than I’m willing to count, wrapped in 7 anthologies and a gigantic bundle that is bigger than your average anthology.
What kind of fiction will you find here? Science fiction and fantasy only, but written in such a way as to blur the lines of genre. You’ll find books in which high-tech gaming meets the world of faerie, books which hack reality (and involve crime lords!), time travel to the Old West, wreck diving in space, space pirates (!), librarian witches (complete with feline familiars), and the Fates—who just got fired.
And that’s just the novels. The short stories cover the entire fantasy genre (with a bit of sf). They take us back to fairie, give us great urban fantasy, (sometimes on motorcycles), and provide a short introduction to some of the best writers working today, including Seanan McGuire, Dave Farland, Jane Yolen, and Esther M. Friesner.
The bundles also form mini bundles of their own. If you like adventurous science fiction, start with these bundles: The Science Officer Omnibus, and The Diving Series Starter Bundle. If you had a tough few months and want books that will make you smile, start with The Washington Witches, The Thunder Mountain Series Starter Kit, and The Fates Trilogy. If you want to focus on gaming or the digital universe, try The Digital Sea Trilogy and The Feyguard Books. And if you’re in a short story mood, we have the Fiction River Fantasy Bundle, the first year of the acclaimed Uncollected Anthology, and Faerie Summer.
