Humble Subterranean Press Bundle: Pay What You Want For a Lot of Great Stuff

Most of you know that I do a lot of work with Subterranean Press, because they do an excellent job with my limited and/or off-the-wall projects. They are some of my favorite people to work with, and I’m not alone in this assessment: some of the best authors in science fiction and fantasy work with them, creating some amazing books.

Now you can get in on some of that for a very affordable price: SubPress is working with the Humble Bundle folks and has created a very excellent SubPress eBook bundle. Who is in the bundle? Well, for any price, you get:

  • Peter Brett
  • Harlan Ellison
  • Caitlin Kiernan
  • Cherie Priest
  • Dan Simmons
  • Connie Willis
  • Jack Vance

Kick in more than the average amount for the bundle, and you also get:

  • Kelly Armstrong
  • Clive Barker
  • Ted Chiang
  • Maria Dahvana Headley and Kat Howard
  • Barry Hughart
  • Tim Powers
  • John Scalzi (hi!)

And if you pay more than $15, you also get:

  • Joe Lansdale
  • Robert McCammon
  • K.J. Parker

Basically, that’s a whole lot of excellent reading, from fantastic authors. Pay what you want, get everything you pay for completely DRM-free. And in doing so, you’ll also help out the Worldbuilders charity, as a cut of the proceeds goes to that.

Go get it now: Great authors, a great charity and a great value. This is totally worth your time and money. And tell your friends about it too — this bundle won’t be around forever.

  1. The last link in the post goes to the Worldbuilders site & I’m not seeing the bundle for sale from there. Perhaps you meant that to link to the Humble Bundle site?

  2. Thank you so much for the heads up; at last I’ve got my hands on Master Li and the Number 10 Ox. Having been incarcerated in hospital twice in the last fortnight I felt I could treat myself, and benefitting a charity is definitely icing on the cake…

  3. I just wanted to thank you for posting about this. I haven’t found a way to get Humble Bundle notifications for book bundles only (I’m not a gamer), so I fear I may miss some of them.

    So I really appreciate the info – thanks!

  4. I sure wish they had continued with Ellison’s Edgeworks series.

    And I just logged on to Amazon and realized I’m like four months behind on both F&SF and Asimov’s. I am become my father.

  5. @Kristi – I’m pretty sure I get both, but that may be because I’ve bought both games and books through them. I’ll have a look. OK – their login dialog is hanging, but if you go to the “Books Bundle” tab, there’s a space to fill in your email address and subscribe. That looks to me to be the place to sign up for book notifications.

  6. Just bought mine. I was initially confused by the Humble tip section at first, because I though it was another charity. I goggled it and discovered its the name of a christian rapper. Why are they giving him money?, I thought. Then I actually read the website and it made sense.

  7. Nabbed it! I love Humble Bundle and Story Bundle for great collections of ebooks. Too bad that I already have the Scalzi book in this collection, but still worth the “pay over the average” price to get the others!

  8. I bought the bundle. It’s a great collection, but the books don’t open on my Kindle and Humble support haven’t answered any of my requests for assistance. Anyone know an actual email address for them? Or a telephone number?
