which lives up to its name, and actually has a couple of books which are normally out from different publishers.

This features some very good selections of work from Ursula K. Le Guin, Stanisław Lem, Theodore Sturgeon (geo-restricted to US-only, I think; it says “not available in your region” for me)
This would be more informative if you said where you are located.

BTW, I get the same unavailability note, for Sturgeon and for Robin McKinley (2 books out of 26), and I am located in France.

The Sturgeon book (More than Human) can be bought independently, though with DRM.

However, the McKinley book does not seem to be available from any retailer, for orders from my country. Weird, given the the author is currently living in the UK.

Expiring in another day is StoryBundle's previously unmentioned Christmas Cheer Bundle, curated by Dean Wesley Smith and featuring multi-genre (tilted towards sfnal) stories of holiday magic and cheer, from cozy mystery to romance to supernatural fantasy, including one of those Fiction River anthologies. $5 minimum for 4 titles, $15 top tier adds another 6 books, including 2 anthologies.

Also expiring are their previous WordFire Press Super Showcase Bundle curated by Star Wars tie-in novelist Kevin J. Anderson featuring titles from his small press imprint, with 17 books in the $15 top tier, and The Winter Wonderland Game Bundle featuring non-fiction books taking you behind the scenes of video and tabletop game development and play.

Bundle of Holding's recent offerings may be of interest to Tolkien fans:

They are doing a rerun of their The One Ring bundle and adding new supplements in The One Ring +2 in the eponymous officially licensed RPG based on J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle Earth, out from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7 Entertainment. More info on the publisher's page here, and according to an old post on this Tolkien fan forum, the license apparently covers just The Hobbit and LOTR, but not the extra materials like Silmarillion et al. This also gives you a discount coupon on the physical books (and possibly also some supplementary accessories like the special game dice) from the Cubicle 7 store.

Also still available for a limited time are: The Dracula Dossier, a horror espionage campaign from Pelgrane Press for the Night's Black Agents setting, Dark Heresy 1E Essentials & Dark Heresy 1E Judgments for the popular Warhammer 40,000 future sci-fantasy setting, The Strange Bundle for a meta adventure game spanning pocket dimensions based upon popular fictional and mythological universes, and The Cypher System which apparently powers a number of popular settings from Monte Cook Games.

New Humble Bundles are up, for:

Humble Book Bundle Work It Out presented by Callisto Media featuring a selection of health, fitness, mindfulness, and cookbooks (mostly Paleo, from the looks of it) from the eponymous publisher, who've previously been featured in the Treat Yourself and Dude Care HBs.

Fixed tiers of $1, $8, and $15 (no new titles added next week). A few of the books seem to be repeats, but many are new.

Quote:
Bundling goals n' gains. Care for a little self-care? Look after body and mind with this library of ebooks from our friends at Callisto Media. Get the Yoga Body and Mind Handbook, The Ultimate Bodybuilding Cookbook, Running Your First Marathon, Paleo for Beginners, and lots more to inspire you through the new year!
Also offered is the Humble Book Bundle Python presented by Packt, featuring a selection of DIY computer programming textbooks and video courses from the eponymous publisher, who've generously given us a daily free book from their backlist for the past couple of years. ETA: Learning Python (not in the bundle) is one of their selection of permafreebie titles independent of the daily giveaway.

Fixed tiers of $1 (with discount coupon for their O'Reilly Safari-like Mapt service), $8, and $15 (no new titles added next week). A fair number of the books seem to have been offered free in the past, but the accompanying video courses look to be good value and if you've ever wanted to thank them for all the freebies you may or may not have benefited from, you can do so for less than $1 per book at 22 books + 6 videos.

Quote:
What…. Is your name? What…. Is your quest? Do you want to learn some Python skills? Are you tired of just holding two empty halves of a coconut and bangin' 'em together? Then look no further, good Sir Knight. In this bundle from Packt, you'll get Artificial Intelligence with Python, Beginning Python, Python Machine Learning, Software Architecture with Python, Learning Python Web Penetration Testing, Mastering Python, and lots more. Ni!
Still available until next week is their Humble Comics Bundle Judge Dredd presented by IDW Publishing featuring selected titles from the newer revival of the cult classic sfnal dystopian British comics franchise.

And a reminder that expiring today are Bundle of Holding's RPG gamebook offerings for an officially licensed game set in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth, The One Ring and The One Ring +2, if you're interested.

Still available for a while longer are their other offers for Dark Heresy 1E Essentials & Dark Heresy 1E Judgments for the popular Warhammer 40,000 future sci-fantasy setting, The Strange Bundle for a meta adventure game spanning pocket dimensions based upon popular fictional and mythological universes, and The Cypher System which apparently powers a number of popular settings from Monte Cook Games.
