This summer looks like it’ll be the summer of bundle crossovers. Somehow, through the magic of Kris being calendar challenged in 2016, I’m in several bundles that will crossover with each other.
The first crossover occurred this week. The Moonscapes bundle that I told you about two weeks ago ends on Wednesday. If you like science fiction as much as I do, pick up this bundle. Lots of great sf, some of it hard sf, some of it space opera. If you haven’t tried my Retrieval Artist series yet, now’s the time. You can get a novella, and the most acclaimed novel in the series, along with eight other novels and a bunch more short stories. (If, of course, you pony up $15.)
The new bundle, the one that caused the crossover, is in a different genre altogether. I curated (read: edited) the Dark Crimes bundle, and packed it with my favorite authors, many of them working on my favorite series. You’ll find Montreal Emergency Room doctor Hope Sze, 1930s Berlin crime reporter Hannah Vogel, the early members of Las Vegas’s Cold Poker Gang, New Orleans Police Detective Dino LaStanza, London Detective Sergeant Jaime Brooke, Chicago PI Georgia Davis, and Nevada PI Abby Maxon, as well as a woman and a young girl on the run in Nevada (again!).
The novelists who created these memorable characters run the gamut of writing accolades—from Edgar and ITW Thriller Award nominees to critical darlings and indie sensations to Shamus winners and New York Times bestsellers. Those novelists are (in the order of their creations, above) Melissa Yi, Rebecca Cantrell, Dean Wesley Smith, O’Neal De Noux, J.F. Penn, Libby Fischer Hellmann, Annie Reed, and me.
In addition to all those great books (many of them first in a series), you’ll also find dozens of short stories by some of the biggest names in mystery fiction. Everyone from Mary Higgins Clark to Kate Wilhelm, Julie Hyzy to T. Jefferson Parker.
In addition both bundles support the charity AbleGamers.
AbleGamers makes it possible for people with disabilities to participate in the very social world of online gaming, by providing everything from equipment personalized for each person’s needs to advice to the game developers on how to make their entertainment accessible.
Entertainment takes our mind off the troubles in the world, even when we’re exploring the world’s dark corners, as we do in this bundle. As you pick up a copy of this bundle, please consider throwing in a few dollars to help AbleGamers. You’ll get great books to read, and someone somewhere will get a shiny piece of equipment to help them find a few hours of escape as well.
I’m very excited about the Dark Crimes bundle. If you’ve never read mystery and crime fiction, you’ll find this a perfect introduction to the genre. If you love the genre as much as I do, then you have a lot of great summer reading ahead. So head over to Storybundle.com, and get your copy(ies) today!
