The minimum price to pay is $3. StoryBundle has added a very interesting info to the price-adjusting bar, which states what is the current average price. For the new bundle, at the time of writing this post is was $11.24.

You can get two bonus titles (that will make 8 books in total), if you pay a minimum $10 for the bundle. These titles are The Stars in Shroud, one of the early novels of a sci-fi master Gregory Benford, and High-Opp, a novel by Frank Herbert, which was never published before.

Buyers have also the right to decide on the split between the author and StoryBundle. By default it’s set to give 70% to the author, but you can decide to give 100% for the author or 100% for the StoryBundle if this is your wish.

The books from StoryBundle are DRM-free, in epub and mobi formats, so you can read them basically on every e-reader and in every e-reading application. Why wait?

Suppose you could switch bodies with another person. What exciting new experiences would you choose to explore? What forbidden desires would you indulge?

Suppose someone stole your life? Stole your body? How far would you go to get it back?

Hopscotch is a pure adrenaline thriller of hijacked identities, elusive motives, and deeply buried secrets. Four friends on a journey through a futuristic world where body-swapping is commonplace and the very definition of humanity has been changed: one an artist who wants to experience every aspect of life, one a seeker looking for her soul, one an inadvertent murderer who has to swap from body to body, always on the run … and one the friend who must hunt him down.

The DisappearedThe Disappeared

Kristine Kathryn Rusch

The Disappeared is Flint’s very first adventure, the story that turns him from a police detective in the Armstrong Dome on the Moon into a Retrieval Artist.

In a universe where humans and aliens have formed a loose government called the Earth Alliance, treaties guarantee that humans are subject to alien laws when on alien soil. But alien laws often make no sense, and the punishments vary from loss of life to loss of a first-born child. Now three cases have collided: a stolen spaceyacht filled with dead bodies, two kidnapped human children, and a human woman on the run, trying to Disappear to avoid alien prosecution. Flint must enforce the law—giving the children to aliens, solving the murders, and arresting the woman for trying to save her own life.

But how is a man supposed to enforce laws that are unjust? How can he sacrifice innocents to a system he’s not sure he believes in? How can Miles Flint do the right thing in a universe where the right thing is very, very wrong?
