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.

I’m really excited to introduce my contemporary retelling of how Prince Philip and Princess Aurora might have *really* met 😀 I hope you enjoy this story!
Prince Philip’s father is ready for a grandchild, which means Philip has to marry. Immediately, if not sooner. Great. The most important decision of Philip’s life, and Dad wants him to make it NOW. When Philip doesn’t act fast enough to suit the king, his father writes Philip’s marriage into a treaty with the neighboring kingdom. All Philip has to do is visit King Stefan and choose between his twin daughters. What could be easier? NOT!
I’m super excited to announce that TWO of my stories are in absolutely amazing bundles … and BOTH of these bundles are on sale (now through June 25th!) for only $0.99 each! Click on the pictures for details 😀

But if you want to make it back home, you had better be wary…
