In the Quake Zone by David Gerrold

The Riven Trilogy by A.R. Knight
1."…the very clever idea of guides handling the influx of spirits to the afterlife…"– Reader Review
Quincy Harker: Year One by John G. Hartness
"Quincy Harker—this is who i want protecting the world! I love these books."– EGOT Winner Whoopi Goldberg
Fright Nights Big City by Mark Leslie
"This book is as fun as it's inspirational as romantic as it is thrilling and as deep and filled with values as it is long. Mark Leslie knows how to entertain, educate, and steal a good laugh from his readers."– Julio Carlos, Scribblesworth Reviews
Nightingale by Melissa Mickelsen
"Effectively melding briskly-paced action with the internal struggles of both a traumatized young outcast forced into horrific deeds and the wily but honorable Talros. Debut author Mickelsen brings fresh twists and emotional depth to her tightly-written, compelling tale of mercantile politics, interracial conflict, and difficult choices."– Publisher's Weekly
Eden's Eyes by Sean Costello
"The best horror novel I've read since Stephen King's own Pet Sematary. Costello knows how to tantalize his readers, priming them for the horrors to come…"
Cobweb Bride by Vera Nazarian
"Nazarian writes clean and true prose..."– Publishers Weekly
Passing Through Veils by John Harrison
"Written with utter assurance, Passing Through Veils is equal parts propulsive and prose. A ghost story tucked into a very human story; there's a scene in this book that made me jump. Graceful yet bold, rooted with room to breathe. It's even, at times, erotic. Strong women, strong men, clashing before strong backdrops of family, history, and the state of one's mind. John Harrison has written one of my favorite books of the year."– Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box and Malorie
Book of Death and Madness by John Haas
"...satisfies as a well-wrought supernatural thriller."– Publishers Weekly
Deprivers by Steven-Elliot Altman
"A book that gets under your skin and on your nerves. The science is impressive; the fiction is haunting. It has a lot on its mind; and it will touch you."– Mark Frost, co-creator of Twin Peaks

So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
