New Humble Bundle is up, and it's for:

Humble Audiobook Bundle Lord of the Rings, featuring DRM-free mp3s of all three titles in the trilogy, as well as The Hobbit and two tie-in scholarly things, all presented by Recorded Books.

ETA: AnemicOak points out in the Audiobooks mega-thread that these are abridged dramatizations originally aired on National Public Radio, not full-novel readings, if that makes any difference to you.

Current average is around $9, top-tier is $15 to get all three actual LOTR books, which is what you're probably going for anyway (though if you already have them, you can get just The Hobbit and one of the tie-ins at the pay-what-you-want minimum tier), no additional titles to be added next week, but available for the next 14 days.

Quote:
One bundle to rule them all. Perhaps you started with the books, or was it the movies? Either way, the next step is venturing into the world of fully dramatized versions of the Tolkien classics!

Pay what you want for The Modern Scholar: Tolkien and the West: Recovering the Lost Tradition of Europe and The Hobbit.

Pay more than the average price to also receive The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings, The Return of the King, and The Fellowship of the Ring.

Pay $15 of more for all of that plus The Two Towers.
Also, Apex Magazine is hosting a Kickstarter for a new anthology of theirs: Upside Down: Inverted Tropes In Storytelling, which has another 16 days to go and has very nearly hit their goal.

As one of the add-ons available at any level for $30 is a bundle of issues #1-78 of the magazine, working out to a cost of roughly 40 cents per issue. The actual anthology can be gotten for a $5 pledge level, and there are e-book bundle pledge levels for other works by the featured authors and/or previous anthologies for the magazine, at various price points.
