The Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) Science Fiction Bundle is now LIVE!

Welcome to the largest, grandest and most out there bundle SFWA has ever done: the Sci-Fi SFWA Space Bundle! With 17 books that range from hardcore military sci-fi to character-focused alien encounters, we might have gone through the wormhole and out the other side.

SFWA serves authors at all points in their careers and we've embraced that diversity for this bundle. First, the Self-Publishing Committee reached out to a number of sci-fi authors throughout the genre who we know have enthusiastic and diverse fanbases. Then we opened the bundle up for submissions to our entire membership. We received far more submissions than we could actually put in this bundle, but after some rousing debate, we settled on a total of 17 spectacular titles.

Some highlights include:

The Dark Between by Stephanie Bedwell-Grime: Want something a bit different? I always do. This story starts with the spacehulk trope and goes in a direction that is totally unexpected. Space is a big strange place and Stephanie nails that with these interlocking characters.

Troubled Space by Amy Duboff:

Amy has honored us with a true treat, launching her new novel with our Storybundle. I went in blind expecting a plucky smuggler story but as the absurdities built I realized we'd gone from space opera to Spaceballs. Warning, this one may cause giggling as the absurdities pile up.

Crapkiller by Felix R. Savage: On Ganymede, nothing is what it seems and this story straight up surprised me. I had been expecting an action-packed bug hunt, but what I got was a thoughtful adventure that serves as a crucible for its characters to mature into. Combined with Felix's rich world-building, this is a journey that shouldn't be missed.

These are but 3 of the 17 books we are bringing to you today. There are many wonders within this bundle and I'm sure every reader will find something to love within. When you do find gems that fits you, I urge you to reach out to the authors to let them know, write a review, or simply share the book with a friend.

Some of the proceeds of the bundle go to support SFWA in its mission to support, promote, inform, defend, and advocate for professional fantasy and science fiction writers. For more about the organization, see . For its grants program, see – Daniel Potter
