Humble Bundle has just made friends with anyone looking for a stash of amazing and award-winning scifi and fantasy to add to their collection. The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America bundle is an impressive collection of Nebula winners and nominated authors that’s basically an automatic summer reading list.

The Super Nebula Author Showcase, presented by SFWA, has over $400 worth of speculative fiction from authors who’ve been highlighted by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. They include George R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Octavia Butler, and Isaac Asimov, among dozens of others. There’s even an official SFWA cookbook, which includes both food recipes and cocktails.

Donation tiers start at $1 and go toward $20 or more. Proceeds from the latest Humble Bundle go toward SFWA’s Givers Fund, which combines with other charitable donations to give grants for genre-related groups or individuals. This year’s Nebula Awards will be presented at the SFWA conference in Pittsburg between May 18 and 21. You can check out the bundle here.

DISCUSSION

To make one point clear, this is a collection of works many of which are simply written by authors who have been *otherwise* nominated for Nebulas (or won them). In at least one case, they’re stretching fairly far—”Arthur C. Clarke’s Venus Prime” is in there because Arthur C. Clarke has won the Nebula, but that particular book was not only not nominated, it’s not even written by Clarke, just based on something he did.

That said, there are some actual Nebula nominated and winning works in there as well, and of course some of the collateral ones can be quite good as well.
