StoryBundle: "Feminist Futures"

This time around it's sci-fi written by women. Comments for three of them:

 

Happy Snak - Nicole Kimberling - I read this back when it was published by Samhain Publishing, and I'm glad to hear that it survived Samhain's shutdown. A snack shop owner becomes the guardian of a "ghost." I need to reread this sometime.

 

The Steerswoman - Rosemary Kirstein - I haven't read this, although I've heard good things about it. I already have a copy in my collection (that I still haven't gotten around to reading).

 

Spots the Space Marine: Defense of the Fiddler - M.C.A. Hogarth - I've read a bunch of Hogarth's works and have enjoyed most of them. The main reason I haven't read this one, although a lot of her fans love it, is because of its unusual format: it looks a lot like a script.

 

I need to take a closer look at the other ones before I decide whether or not to get the bundle.

Storybundle: LGBT+

(I know the L and G of the "LGBT+" of this bundle are represented, but I'm not sure yet about the other letters.)

 

The ones from this bundle in my collection:

 

- The Mystic Marriage by Heather Rose Jones - (Lesbian historical fantasy) I have no idea why this bundle includes the second work in this series, rather than the first, but I guess this isn't too bad a place to start. It's a sort of alternate history historical, involving alchemy and a hint of f/f romance. I need to finish this up - the Booklikes-opoly game sidetracked me. (ETA: I just remembered, one of the main characters in this is also technically asexual. I say "technically" because I don't think the word is used in the text, although the author has said she is.)

 

- Death by Silver by Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold - (Gay historical fantasy) I own this but haven't read it yet. I've heard good things about Melissa Scott's works.

 

I need to check the other works in the bundle and see if they interest me, but if these two weren't already in my collection they alone would be worth the bundle price. The Mystic Marriage is usually $9.99 and Death by Silver is $8.00.

Storybundle: Artificial Intelligence (!!!)

I haven't looked at it yet, so for all I know nothing in it will appeal. But I'll be looking at it more closely later, just in case! As far as I know, I've never read any of the authors included in the bundle, although I've at least heard of a few of them.

 

ETA - Whoops, not quite accurate. I've read William Gibson before, and one of his works is included in one of the anthologies.

Haikasoru Storybundle!

I can't say it's my perfect bundle, because it's missing lots of Haikasoru titles I'd like, but I still made an involuntary happy noise. I'm totally getting this one.

Storybundle: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Nano Bundle

I need to take a closer look at this one later, but I figured I'd mention it because it includes a book by Lindsay Buroker. I think I know at least one fan of this author here on Booklikes.
