What is Geeky Giving?
Each month Geeky Giving will produce a bundle of exclusive short stories and novellas. These science fiction and fantasy books by your favorite authors will only be available through Geeky Giving, and 100 percent of the money we raise goes directly to BarrowNeurological Institute to research cures for Alzheimer’s, ALS, brain tumors, Parkinson’s Disease and more.
At the end of this the project we plan to create a complete anthology of all stories with a special capstone story not available anywhere else. Print and e-book copies will be available.
Authors who are already contributing stories to this great cause include:
Each bundle will also feature original cover art created just for this project, including works from Jessica Robinson and Sal V. Cloak.
In addition, you’ll have a chance to win amazing swag including: Phoenix Comicon full event passes, signed books from Kelley Armstrong, Michelle Belanger, Patricia Briggs, Rachel Caine, Diana Gabaldon, Kevin Hearne, Kameron Hurley, Helen Lowe, Chloe Neill, Delia Sherman, Chuck Wendig and so much more!
Geeky Giving February 2016 Book Bundle will be available starting Feb. 22, 2016.
In the February bundle you’ll find two novelettes and two short stories and a whole lot of awesome. From the consequences of targeting a virus carrier to ghostly connections to a fantasy quest to appease the moon to the possibility of going full Cylon and body hopping.
