This Bundle is done and gone! A Huge Bestseller, the bestselling bundle of 2015!

Do I have more Storybundles up my sleeve? Don't be silly! Of course I do! The Story Collection Storybundle goes live May 11, 2016 and will last only through June 2, 2016.

Like the movie and music industries, publishing offers its share of exciting awards recognizing excellence in writing.

The coveted Philip K. Dick Award is presented annually with the support of the Philip K. Dick Trust for distinguished science fiction published in paperback original form in the United States. The award was inaugurated in 1983 after the untimely death of the iconic science fiction author, Philip K. Dick, whose work has been adapted into major motion pictures such as Blade Runner, Total Recall, and Minority Report.

I’m serving as one of five judges for the 2016 PKD award. After participating in the Time Travel Bundle for Storybundle.com earlier in 2015, I became excited by the concept of a bundle comprised of PKD Finalists and Winners.

One thing led to another, and now I’m thrilled to curate the Philip K. Dick Award Bundle for Storybundle.com. Above and beyond earning the distinction of the award, this unique and historic collection of eleven amazing books showcases the many-splendored spectrum of science fiction from classic themes to the avant-garde.

Visit the majestic city of the Ascendants in Elizabeth Hand’s Aestival Tide, the spooky abandoned storage closet down the hall in Kathe Koja’s The Cipher, rock-n-rolling San Francisco in 1967 in my own Summer of Love, a Martian colony with a terrible secret in Lewis Shiner’s Frontera, the visionary far future in Walter Jon Williams’ Knight Moves.

As always at Storybundle.com, you the reader name your price—whatever you feel the books are worth. You may designate a portion of the proceeds to go to a charity. For the Philip K. Dick Award Bundle, that’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (“SFWA”). SFWA champions writers’ rights, sponsors the Nebula Award for excellence in science fiction, and promotes numerous literacy groups.

The basic bundle (minimum $5 to purchase, more if you feel the books are worth more) includes:

Aestival Tide by Elizabeth Hand (PKD Finalist)
Life by Gwyneth Jones (PKD Winner)
The Cipher by Kathe Koja (PKD Finalist)
Points of Departure by Pat Murphy (PKD Winner)
Dark Seeker by K. W. Jeter (PKD Finalist)
Summer of Love by Lisa Mason (PKD Finalist)

To complete your bundle, beat the bonus price of $15 and you'll receive another five books:

Frontera by Lewis Shiner (PKD Finalist)
Acts of Conscience by William Barton (PKD Special Citation)
Maximum Ice by Kay Kenyon (PKD Finalist)
Knight Moves by Walter Jon Williams (PKD Finalist)
Reclamation by Sarah Zettel (PKD Finalist)

All of these accomplished, traditionally published authors have received recognition and won multiple awards in addition to placing as a PKD Finalist or Winner, and we’re delighted their ebooks are available for the Philip K. Dick Award Bundle. Elizabeth Hand has won the World Fantasy Award (among many others), as has Gwyneth Jones. Pat Murphy has won the Nebula twice, Kathe Koja the Bram Stoker. The list goes on.

If you’re just dipping your toe into science fiction and not sure where to begin or if you’re a long-time fan and reader, this historic and unique collection is an excellent addition to your elibrary, providing world-class, award-winning reading right now and into the holidays.
