THE VANDERMEER WINTER MIX TAPE BUNDLE
Curated by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer
It's that time of year when you're looking for great reading and for unusual gifts for friends and family. We think we've got what you're looking for, bringing you not just new selections from our Cheeky Frawg Books but also a hand-picked selection from other independent publishers.
We're curating what we're calling a VanderMeer Winter Mix Tape for storybundle.com, a great, often exclusive selection of ten wonderful novels and fiction collections by writers from all over the world. This is our thank you to readers for your support over the years, and a way that you can help us, too.
As always, at StoryBundle, you name your own price—whatever you feel the books are worth, and if you choose, a portion of the proceeds goes to charity. The bulk of the monies go directly to writers or their publishers and also fund our translation projects across platforms like Weirdfictionreview.com and our various anthologies. You can make a big difference in our ability to research and bring to English-language audiences the international wealth of speculative fiction out there.
What do we mean by exclusive? Titles like the original anthology Bestiary, with new fiction from China Miéville, Catherynne M. Valente, and many others can't be bought in e-book form anywhere else. Anna Tambour's World Fantasy Award-finalist novel Crandolin isn't available in e-book form elsewhere, either. Nor can you read German writer Eugen Egner's screwball fantasy The Eisenberg Constant anywhere but through this Storybundle. Not to mention the just-released career-defining two-part behemoth that is Leena Krohn: Collected Fiction, Spanish Steampunk, feminist space adventure, and much more.
For StoryBundle, you decide what price you want to pay. For $5 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the basic bundle of five books in any eBook format—WORLDWIDE. If you pay $15 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the five bonus books as well.
The VanderMeer Winter Mix Tape bundle runs for one month only. This is a great deal, and a great way to pick up a batch of books for those winter nights. It's also a great way to show your support for wonderful, unique fiction and the creative people who write it. – Ann & Jeff VanderMeer

It's also super easy to give the gift of reading with StoryBundle, thanks to our gift cards – which allow you to send someone a code that they can redeem for any future StoryBundle bundle – and timed delivery, which allows you to control exactly when your recipient will get the gift of StoryBundle.
