Aurora Award Speculative Fiction Bundle from StoryBundle & A Giveaway!

Aurora Award, Speculative Fiction Bundle, StoryBundle, Giveaway, Bea's Book Nook

Are you fan of speculative fiction? Do you like to fly through space, chase werewolves, interact with mythological characters? Then you need to check out this bundle of ebook of books that have won or been finaled for the Aurora Awards, Canada's premier speculative fiction award.

The Auroras are awarded annually by the Canadian Science Fiction & Fantasy Association (CSFFA) for excellence in Science Fiction and Fantasy. This Aurora bundle delivers a great mix of speculative fiction genres: SF, fantasy, urban fantasy, horror, steam punk, as well as young adult. The titles reflect the long history of the Auroras, spanning nearly a quarter century of Canadian speculative fiction from 1993 to 2016. This bundle also provides a great introduction to several wonderful series, including the first title in three separate series and the second book in two more (which can be read as stand-alone titles). And the bundle lets you sample the rich tradition of Canadian short speculative fiction, with two acclaimed anthologies and a collection.

For a limited time, you can download the these titles from StoryBundle works in a similar fashion to HumbleBundle. I shared a HumbleBundle science fiction post a month ago and now you can get more excellent stories, this time from StoryBundle.

The stories in the bundle, pictured above, are by well-known authors such as Kelley Armstrong and Tanya Huff, and some not as well known, such as Jayne Barnard, and Marie Bilodeau, and many in between. Some of these authors, such as Nancy Kilptrick and Marie Bilodeau have been on my radar for a while to read, while others, such as Kelley Armstrong and Tanya Huff, are long-time favorites.

This bundle is available only for a limited time via You can easily read on computers, smartphones, and tablets as well as Kindles and other ereaders via file transfer, email, and other methods. You get multiple DRM-free formats (.epub and .mobi) for all books! That last is particularly handy for individuals or families that do both epub and mobi formats.

It works like this (all links below go to goodreads):

For a minimum purchase of $5, the initial titles in the The Aurora Bundle 3 are:
Scream Queen by Edo van Belkom
Maddie Hatter and the Deadly Diamond by Jayne Barnard
Evolve - Vampire Stories of the New Undead by Nancy Kilpatrick
Destiny's Fall by Marie Bilodeau

If you pay at least the bonus price of just $15 (you can pay more if you choose), you get all 4 of the regular titles, plus 6 more:

Thunder Road by Chadwick Ginther
Eutopia by David Nickle
Far-Seer by Robert J. Sawyer
Tesseracts Fourteen - Strange Canadian Stories by John Robert Colombo and Brett Alexander Savory
Steel Whispers by Hayden Trenholm
Relativity - Stories and Essays by Robert J. Sawyer 

So,  you can get 4 books for $5 or 10 books for $15, and they're in the ebook format of your choice. But it's only available for a limited time! Don't wait. I got mine and the purchasing and downloading was simple. The StoryBundle site has clear directions on downloading your preferred format.

  1. Thanks to the sponsors, and to you, our hostess, for offering this.
    The Canadian story collection is probably the one I'd be most interested in. Love samplers to help find more new authors or remind me of those I've forgotten to pursue.
