Grab Yourself a Humble eBook Bundle!

By

Angry Robot is proud to be participating in the latest charity bundling offer from the good people at Humble Bundle, the Humble eBbook Bundle.

The Humble eBook Bundle

Here’s the promo video:

And here are the details of the deal:

Head on over to www.humblebundle.com and you can purchase and download a bundle of six top-notch ebooks, for whatever price you choose to pay:

Pirate Cinema by Cory Doctorow – an intense story of youthful techno-defiance.
Pump Six and Other Stories by Paolo Bacigalupi – a hard-hitting collection of 11 impactful stories.
Zoo City by our very own Lauren Beukes – suspect you may know about this (Arthur C Clarke Award-winning) cracker.
Invasion: The Secret World Chronicle by Mercedes Lackey, Steve Libby, Dennis Lee, and Cody Martin – a modern military superhero saga packed with bonus content.
Stranger Things Happen by Kelly Link – a delightful fantasy collection of 11 stories.
Magic for Beginners by Kelly Link – the cross-genre follow-up to Stranger Things Happen [MG ~ Along with Zoo City, two of my favourite books, like, ever.]

What’s more, if you choose to pay more than the average price for the bundle – which, at time of editing is a mere $13.15 – you will also receive two bonus ebooks:

Old Man’s War by John Scalzi – a science fiction war epic.
Signal to Noise by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean – an ethereal graphic novel of a man’s last days.

EDIT 17.10.12 Five top-notch webcomic collections have been added to the Humble Ebook Bundle. So now you get 13 ebooks if you pay the average price or more.

Come on, that lot’s got to be worth more than $13.15 surely? Talk about a bargain!

The Humble eBook Bundle also comes with the added bonus of that warm, glowy feeling you get from knowing you’ve Done Good in the process of nabbing yourself a bargain, because as part of the purchase process, you can optionally allocate a part (or all) of their purchase to three fantastic charities:

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (Internet freedom non-profit)
The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (writers advocacy non-profit)
Child’s Play Charity (providing for kids in hospitals in the form of technology and games)

The Humble Bundle folks tell us: “All of the books are available completely DRM-free for a wide range of eBook readers, mobile devices, and desktop computers. We’ve also been working hard to make sure all the books are available in PDF, ePub (open ebook standard), and MOBI (Amazon Kindle) formats.”

It’s a fantastic opportunity to grab yourself eight great ebooks and support the important work of the three charities mentioned above as well. What are you waiting for?
