Kevin J. Anderson and a Bundle of Science Fiction Adventure!

All Covers Large

Kevin J. Anderson blogged about this amazing bundle of books and I’m re-posting it here about all the books! Click here for the bundle.

Science Fiction is the literature that always set my imagination on fire, sparking my sense of wonder, taking me on adventures into the future, off to the most distant parts of the universe, to alien cultures, and the frontiers of the human mind.

I’m curating a new Adventure SF bundle for that contains fourteen great books guaranteed to set your imagination on fire, and it launches today, June 22—for only a little more than a dollar a book.

If you like grand space opera, we’ve got DARKSHIP THIEVES by Sarah A. Hoyt, TIMEWEB by Brian Herbert, FIRE WITH FIRE by Charles A. Gannon, THE WORKER PRINCE by Bryan Thomas Schmidt, and even TALES OF DUNE, the previously uncollected Dune short stories written by Brian Herbert and me.

For hard SF, there’s LAUNCH PAD, an anthology of science fiction stories edited by Jody Lynn Nye and Mike Brotherton. In traditional fast-paced science fiction, the bundle has HER BROTHER’S KEEPER by Mike Kupari, MORNING SONG by Dean Wesley Smith, and BURIED DEEP by Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

In post-apocalyptic adventure, Aaron Michael Ritchey’s DANDELION IRON fits the bill. For gritty cyberpunk, Todd J. McCaffrey has CITY OF ANGELS. Alan Dean Foster has the undersea epic OSHENERTH. And THE CAULDRON by Jean Rabe and Gene deWeese offers mind-bending, thought-provoking future speculation.

I’m also very pleased to include 2113, a new anthology edited by me and John McFetridge—a collection of stories inspired by legendary rock band Rush (and it includes my sequel to the classic epic “2112”).

With, you name your own price for this grab bag of Adventure SF books. For as little as $8 you get the basic bundle of seven titles, and for as little as $16 you get them all. A portion of the money goes to charity—the Challenger Learning Center for Space Science Education—and, other than a small admin percentage, the rest of the earnings is directly divided among the titles.

For this Adventure SF bundle, I’m adding an exclusive sneak preview for all customers—a first-hand look at the first few chapters of NAVIGATORS OF DUNE (due out September 13), the grand finale of the Great Schools of Dune trilogy, as well as the first few chapters of ETERNITY’S MIND, the climax of my Saga of Shadows trilogy.

This is available for a limited time only, running for three weeks.  The bundle ends on July 12.  Shoot for the stars!

Hope IS a Weapon – Your Chance

There is a war brewing against my despair, and I need your help.

At the very heart of who I am, hope constantly battles despair. I’m not a good versus evil type of guy. I think of doing evil things and it makes me want to take a shower and call Lou J. Berger.

So the chance of a lifetime has hit my little writing career and it has filled me with hope. I am a part of a massive Humble Bundle that could really help not only my writing life but the life of the books I’ve loved to write the most.

I love Dandelion Iron (The Juniper Wars Book 1) and I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever written. It is a part of a bundle of sci-fi novels that has a truly impressive list of authors and projects.

From the press release, and I quote: Instead of just a grab bag of books, fully half of the 18 titles in the Sci-Fi Specials Bundle are not available to the public at the time of the Bundle launch on April 6.  One book—the new anthology Decision Points, featuring stories by bestsellers and award-winners Jody Lynn Nye, Lois McMaster Bujold, Robert J. Sawyer, Jonathan Maberry, Kevin J. Anderson, and a never-before-collected Ender’s Game story by Orson Scott Card—is included here as an advance pre-production proof. The remaining books in the bundle have never previously appeared in any other bundle.

So yeah, Dandelion Iron is with an Orson Scott Card Ender’s Game story that has never been in a collection before.

Gulp. My book. Hope battles despair.

If this Humble Bundle doesn’t do well, I might not be invited back.

This is it. This is a moment in time that could have amazing results. Not only do you get my book before anyone else, you get a ton of other wonderful books as well as the chance to help various charities. Over the years, the Humble Bundle project has given over 71 Million Dollars away to charities. That truly is a hopeful thing.

Now is the time.
