Well, now I’m going to tell you to embrace your fears again. But this time it’s with a fear-themed Storybundle.
The Fear Bundle, curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, features ten fantastically frightful books for an anything-but-scary price.
Here’s a few words about this bundle from Kris herself:
Fear comes in many forms. The hair slowly rising on the back of your neck. That imaginary icy finger that sends shivers up your spine. The jolt of adrenaline when something topples over in your supposedly empty house. I’ve tried to assemble all the various fears for this Storybundle. We actually do have rabid vampires, thanks to Rebecca M. Senese. Sean Costello and Dean Wesley Smith provide two different kinds of serial killers. Mark Leslie and Leah Cutter examine the ways that magic can taint the user. J.F. Penn and I both show how the world itself can go mad. And Michael Warren Lucas adds a touch of science fiction by examining what happens after an alien destroys the world and everyone in it.
If we missed some great fictional fears, I’ll be surprised. Because we have ghosts and wee beasties, thrills and chills, and things that go bump in the night. All of it brought to you by writers with vast pedigrees—award nominees, New York Times and USA Today bestsellers, critical darlings, and worldwide bestsellers.
And if you’re a writer, you should check out this year’s NaNoWriMo Writing Tools bundle, curated by the masterful Kevin J. Anderson. It includes two WMG Writer’s Guides (Time Management by Kris and The Magic Bakery by Dean Wesley Smith), along with eleven other guides to help you improve your writing and your writing business.
Finally (and I’m not the least bit afraid to tell you this), thank you to everyone who supported our Pulphouse Fiction Magazine Kickstarter. We obliterated our goal of $5,000 and reached a mind-boggling $35, 215. Rewards start going out in November.
So much reading to do. Now, that’s what I call a scary good problem.
