StoryBundle has a new offering for:

The Summer Smash Game Bundle containing non-fiction titles (industry histories, journalism, and gameplay nostalgia/guides) about video games. Some of them are exclusives of Kickstarter-backed deluxe paper titles, available as e-books for the first time.

$5 minimum for 3 titles (1 Sega nostalgia, 1 journalism, 1 history of point-and-click adventures)
$15 top tier for an extra 5 titles (1 essay collection, 2 history, 2 nostalgia guides for Undertale and Kingdom Hearts franchises)

Just a reminder that expiring soon is their SF & F Binge Reader Bundle curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, containing a generous selection of mostly newer works by established and indie authors with a few backlist reprints thrown in. And The Bump in the Night Thriller Bundle curated by Kevin J. Anderson, full of paranormal/horror-ish mystery is also available.

Another set of freebie DRM-free video games are offered as part of a sample for the new Humble microJumble Bundle in exchange for your valid email address. The 2 freebie games are Space Pilgrim Episode 1, a point and click adventure for Windows, and Pony Island, a meta-commentary puzzle game where you are trapped in a malfunctioning arcade game and fix bad code, available for Windows, Mac, & Linux. There are also some nice programming-related games in the actual bundle if you want to play a hacker (on Windows). The sample freebies in the previous Game and Mobile bundle offerings mentioned upthread are also still available.

Also expiring tomorrow at 11 AM Pacific Time on Wednesday is the non-fiction Humble Book Bundle Fandom & Philosophy presented by Wiley-Blackwell, full of pop culture-examining titles for various media franchises. The Humble Book Bundle Unreal Engine & Unity 5 presented by Packt full of computer programming books and video courses for aspiring game programmers, and the excellent Humble Comics Bundle Best of Fantagraphics still have about a week to go.

Bundle of Holding's new RPG gamebook offering is for BASH! a flexible superhero game you can use for fantasy or space opera settings. They've also added some print-and-assemble paper miniatures to the top tier for the previous Palladium Fantasy fantasy adventure game (auto-added to the purchase of anyone who's already bought). Also still available are Numenera and Numenera +2 Ninth World Discovery, a sci-fantasy exploration game in a world with both nanotechnology and strange creatures.

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

Humble Book Bundle Brainiac 2 presented by No Starch Press, containing a pretty nice selection of kid-friendly DIY tech hobbyist and computer programming/learning books.

Some of the titles are repeats from previous bundles (I was hoping for a Manga Guide I didn't already own), but there's a good assortment of newer books, including a computer science textbook written in the form of a mystery that's been on my wishlist, and some LEGO® and other instructional stuff.

Fixed tiers of $1, $8, and $15 (no new titles added next week).

Quote:
She's a brainiac, brainiac! No Starch is back with a new bundle to tuck under your thinking cap. Start brainstorming with The LEGO Animation Book, Electronics for Kids, Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python, The Art of LEGO Scale Modeling, Arduino Project Handbook, and more!

Humble Bundle has added a new offering, for:

Humble Book Bundle LEGO® Mindstorms & Robotics presented by APress featuring DIY tech hobbyist books for more specialized aspects of the popular building brick and Arduino systems, from a division of German textbook publisher Springer Verlag, IIRC.

Fixed tiers of $1, $8, and $15 (no new titles added next week).

Quote:
The perfect mindstorm. The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® system allows you to create custom programmable robots from a few bricks, some sensors, and your own brainpower. Get inspired with this bundle full of ebooks, including Beginning LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3, Practical LEGO Technics, Arduino and LEGO Projects, and LEGO Technic Robotics… and start brainstorming!
Just a reminder that expiring tomorrow on Wednesday at 11 AM Pacific Time is their excellent Humble Comics Bundle Best of Fantagraphics, containing a quality selection from the notable publisher. And still going for another week or so is their Humble Book Bundle Brainiac 2 presented by No Starch Press containing similar LEGO® and electronics and computer programming DIY hobby books, but oriented more towards beginners, and kid friendly.

Also expiring Real Soon Now in the next day or two is Groupees' Dynamite Game of Thrones comics bundle, which, disappointingly, contains very few issues of the eponymous comic, compared to all the titles from their other popular franchises, which may still be good value for you to pick up if you're following those series.

StoryBundle has a new offering for The Universe Between Bundle curated by Star Trek tie-in novelist turned small publisher Dean Wesley Smith (Wikipedia). It seems to consist mainly of supernatural encounters/weird fiction/magical realism-type fantasy (the curator's note mentions The Twilight Zone as an influence, with mostly newer titles by established authors and indies.

That said, it has a 1989 Doubleday backlist historical fantasy from Judith Tarr (Wikipedia), one of my favourite historical fantasy authors, which is set in the Crusader kingdom of Jerusalem and available at the lowest tier (would normally cost you about the same, off-sale).

$5 minimum for 4 titles.
$15 top tier for 6 more titles, including one of the Fiction River anthologies, and a novelette by Kristine Kathryn Rusch which originally appeared in Jim Baen's Universe magazine.

Just a reminder that ending in the next few days is their Bump in the Night Bundle curated by Star Wars tie-in author turned small publisher Kevin J. Anderson, full of supernatural thrillers, and there's still some time to go on The Summer Smash Game Bundle full of non-fiction video game making of histories, articles, and gameplay guides.

Bundle of Holding's new RPG gamebook offering is for: The Esoterrorists, apparently a Lovecraftian-styled game where you protect the modern world from the horrors of the Outer Dark being summoned by local occult terrorists. Still available are the previous BASH! a flexible superhero game you can use for fantasy or space opera settings, and Palladium Fantasy fantasy adventure game.

Fixed tiers of $1, $8 (new titles added next week), and $15. A few books at the lower tiers are repeats from previous LP HBs offered in previous years, but there's a bunch of nice-looking brand new stuff.

And for further DIY programming self-education needs, the other offering for Humble Book Bundle Data Science presented by O'Reilly, full of statistics-adjacent stuff, is still available.

StoryBundle has a new offering for Fairytale Fantasy curated by Charlotte English. It appears to be mainly newer works by established and/or indie authors, but there's a novel in there by T. Kingfisher, which is the pseudonym of Hugo, Nebula, & Mythopoeic Prize-winning author and comics artist Ursula Vernon (ISFDB) whose work has been picked up by Amazon's exclusive 47North imprint, and a continuation of a Houghton Mifflin Harcourt-published series by Alethea Kontis (ISFDB).

Their previous Truly Epic Fantasy Bundle curated by Kevin J. Anderson is still available.

Bundle of Holding's new RPG gamebook offering is for Apocalypse Engine +2, a collection set in the Apocalypse World game which apparently spans a whole bunch of real life historical timelines.

They've also added extra material to earlier offerings (previous top tier purchasers will find the new additions automatically in their libraries): a Werewolf Translation Guide, apparently for adapting one system to another for Werewolf 20A celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Werewolf: The Apocalypse, a game originally published by White Wolf and now with Onyx Path. And there's also some kind of new live-action scenario added to the ARM5 Wizards & Power supplements which go with the Ars Magica 5 fantasy wizardry setting from Atlas Games.

StoryBundle has a new offering for:

The Light in the Dark YA Bundle curated by Allyson Longueira (ISFDB), an editor for Kristine Kathryn Rusch & Dean Wesley Smith's WMG Publishing imprint.

This contains mainly newer titles by established and indie authors, but there's a nice-looking collection of short stories by Baen author Jody Lynn Nye (ISFDB, Wikipedia) at the top tier.

$5 minimum gets you 5 titles, including a Fiction River anthology.
$15 top tier adds 6 more titles, including a “Complete Box Set” of one series' storyline, and novels by Dean Wesley Smith, Kristine Kathryn Rusch writing as Kristine Grayson, and the Jody Lynn Nye collection.
