Open Road Media Partners With Humble Bundle to Celebrate Women of Science Fiction and Fantasy

Two more novels have been added to this fabulous bundle of books - Wild Seed by Octavia Butler and Skin Folk by Nalo Hopkinson. I'm a huge fan of Humble Bundle and you can check out the Women of Science Fiction and Fantasy Bundle here. This Bundle is available through March 29th at 11:00AM Pacific Time.


New York, NY; March 22, 2017—Two iconic science fiction titles­— Octavia Butler’s Wild Seed, and Skin Folk by Nalo Hopkinson—have been added to the sixteen-book Humble Book Bundle launched last week by Open Road Media and Humble Bundle to celebrate Women of Science Fiction and Fantasy. The bundle, in turn, supports First Book, a groundbreaking nonprofit that distributes books and educational materials to schools and programs serving children from low-income families, and gets books into the hands of disadvantaged children.

The Women of Science Fiction and Fantasy Humble Book Bundle now offers eighteen science fiction and fantasy titles by ten critically-acclaimed female authors including Octavia E. Butler, Robin McKinley, Elizabeth Hand, Nalo Hopkinson, Jane Yolen, Pamela Sargent, Katherine Kurtz, Jo Clayton, Kate Elliott, and Diana Pharaoh Francis. The ebooks are DRM-free and available in multiple formats including PDF, mobi, and epub. And as with all Humble Bundles, readers can choose how their purchase dollars are allocated: between the publisher, Humble Bundle, the featured charity First Book, or a second charity of their choice via the PayPal Giving Fund.

The bundle has three tiers. Readers who pay at least $1 will receive Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower, Elizabeth Hand’s Wylding Hall, Kate Elliott’s Jaran, and Path of Fate by Diana Pharaoh Francis.

For $8 or more, readers will also unlock Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Talents, Robin McKinley’s Sunshine, Elizabeth Hand’s Black Light and Saffron and Brimstone, Jo Clayton’s Skeen’s Leap, Lammas Night by Katherine Kurtz, as well as the two iconic titles just unlocked as a Mid-Promotion Addition: Octavia Butler’s Wild Seed, and Skin Folk by Nalo Hopkinson.

Readers who choose to pay $15 or more will receive all of the above, plus Octavia Butler’s Unexpected Stories, Robin McKinley’s Beauty and The Hero and the Crown, Katherine Kurtz’s Camber of Culdi, Pamela Sargent’s The Shore of Women, and Sister Light, Sister Dark by Jane Yolen.

The Women of Science Fiction and Fantasy Humble Book Bundle has already sold more than 5,600 bundles, and runs through March 29th at 11:00AM Pacific Time; to learn more, go to
