If you’re a science fiction or fantasy fan, and you own an iPad, Android tablet, or other e-reader device, you owe it to yourself to check out the second annual Humble eBook Bundle, with a fantastic selection of genre books ready to go, DRM-free. Oh, and you can pay what you want for them, as well. Which includes, “nothing,” you skinflint.
The Humble eBook Bundle 2 is chock full of really great books by masters in the field, including young adult novel Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, the steam-punk flavored Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, hard SF novel Spin by Robert Charles Wilson, and the first novel in the Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold, Shards Of Honor.
If that cornucopia of the modern classics doesn’t get your blood up, then consider this: if you pay more than the average price for the initial bundle (currently $9.24), you’ll get two more books, the enchanting Just a Geek by geektastic author and celebrity, Wil Wheaton, as well as the classic fantasy novel by Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn. This last title comes as a Deluxe Edition, with a bunch of sweet extras, too, like an interview with and an introduction by the author, a sequel story, and a complete bibliography of Peter S. Beagle’s works.
Each of the electronic books is available in DRM-free formats like PDF, MOBI (Kindle), and ePub (iBooks), so you know that you’ll be able to read it now and for as long as you have your device, without any annoying rights management.
Hop on over to the Humble eBook Bundle site, pay what you want, and get six amazing sci fi, fantasy, and geek culture books for your long weekend. Huzzah!
