EXPIRED | Deal Alert: Humble Bundle Women of Sci-Fi & Fantasy

So sorry to totally spam posts today, but I just realized that Humble Bundle has a really nice collection of sci-fi/fantasy books by female authors available right now–but it’s only available for the next 5 days. So late notice, sorry. Anyhow, the bundle includes authors such as Robin McKinley, Octavia E. Butler, Elizabeth Hand, Kate Elliott, Diana Pharaoh Francis, and Nalo Hopkinson. Personally, I’ve read the McKinley books, and the bundle would be worth it just for those books alone. But several of the other ones look interesting too. Oh, and the highest tier ($15) includes a Jane Yolen! If you’re interested, you can check it out here.

Griffins and mermaids and werewolves, oh my! You never know what sorts of unusual beings you’ll run into in this wonderful short story collection. Unnatural Creatures is a masterfully selected volume of stories about, well, unnatural creatures. It contains a nice mix of old favorites such as The Griffin and the Minor Canon and The Sunbird as well as a variety of stories and authors that were completely new to me, including a few that were original to this volume. Regardless of familiarity, I found all of the stories to be tasteful, inventive, and illuminating. Plus, some of them were just plain fun! I definitely recommend this collection, especially to anyone who likes fantasy short stories.
