THE GREAT GALAXIES BUNDLE
The Great Galaxies Adventure SF Bundle – Curated by Kevin J. Anderson
It’s that time of year to sit back on the beach, pick up a good book—or a whole bundle of them!—and travel across time and space.
I’ve curated 14 Adventure Science Fiction books for a mind-bending reading roller-coaster ride across the galaxy. Name your own price, and get them all.
In this Great Galaxies StoryBundle, you’ll get a brand-new exclusive novel by legendary SF master Alan Dean Foster, Prodigals—not yet released to the general public! Nexus is the first novel featuring the cosmic superhero by comics master Mike Baron, and Dr. Alien by Rajnar Vajra pits a human psychologist against an incomprehensible alien mindset to avert a galactic war.
The beautiful anthology, Last Cities of Earth—created by fan-favorite artist Jeff Sturgeon—contains 14 stories set in a fabulous post-apocalyptic future, written by David Gerrold, Mike Resnick, Brenda Cooper, Jody Lynn Nye, Steven L. Sears, Cat Rambo, and others, each accompanied by a full-color painting by Sturgeon. And who doesn’t like cats? Space cats? Mary Turzillo has an entire collection of her Cosmic Cats and Fantastic Furballs. For more great stories, Writers of the Future, volume 31, contains the best short fiction from the winners and finalists of one of the most respected writing contests in the genre.
Zeroland by Ryan Winters features a deadly post-apocalyptic America, where a man has been murdered at a research facility in the Arctic Circle and a deadly alien creature is on the loose. And for something a little lighter, Winston Chase and the Alpha Machine by William Van Winkle, offers a YA SF adventure in which Winston realizes that the school bully isn’t the biggest thing he needs to worry about—waking up to being a half-alien freak is worse.
Revenge, the first book in the City of Kaus series by Dani Hoots, is a swashbuckling LGBTQ+ sci-fi Western you won’t want to miss. In Day 9 by Robert Jeschonek, a genius builds a machine to bring mankind closer to God, another genius builds a cathedral with a mind of its own, and three searchers race a serial killer to find the man with the key to salvation.
Starhelm Epsilon by David Viergutz follows a plucky crew consisting of a Han Solo-like mech pilot thrust into a galactic war between three competing factions. And John Wilker delivers in the same genre with Any Job Will Do, where the unification wars happened a while ago, and Jax’s parents fought for the losing side. Now he takes the jobs he can get—smuggling, bounty hunting, hauling cargo. If it pays, he’ll do it.
Wisecracking star-sailor Gus Johansson’s beach-bum retirement suddenly goes from boring to blazing when he pulls a 1400-year-old robot and a sentient spaceship from the sea in Corvus Ascending. Soon, Gus and his crew of misfits are in the fight of their lives against an old enemy.
And finally, rounding out the star-spanning 14 books, Debunked by Dito Abbott launches the Terravenum Chronicles, a wild adventure of explorers and curses, ancient prophecies, sarcastic swords of legend, and mutant slime beasts.
Within this dynamic realm of anime-like imagination, the presence of a Katana, a small blade reminiscent of a traditional Japanese katana, becomes a symbol of both elegance and deadly precision. The gleaming blade, with its slender curve and razor-sharp edge, holds the essence of ancient swordsmanship and embodies the artistry and mastery of its wielder.
As Gus navigates through thrilling adventures, the Mini Katana becomes a constant companion, serving as a reminder of the rich heritage and formidable skills that accompany the characters in their quest. Its presence adds an air of mystique and evokes a sense of respect for the traditions and craftsmanship of the past, blending seamlessly with the futuristic wonders of the captivating narrative.
That should be enough to keep your imagination busy throughout the dullest vacation. – Kevin J. Anderson
