I’ve just discovered that beside the “usual” Humble Indie Bundle, featuring this time some games for Linux, Windows and dedicated to Android Games, there are also 2 Book Bundle, while they are not related to open source or Linux topics, I like initiatives that propose DRM free products, donate a part of the cash to charity and allow the customers to make a good deal.
Let’s take a closer look at these Bundle, some of them end in a couple of days so this could be your last chance to get them !.
Nine amazing games for your mobile delight. Pay-what-you-want to get BIT.TRIP BEAT, Fieldrunners, SpaceChem, and Uplink (tablets only). And if you beat the average price, you also get Spirits, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, EDGE, Osmos, and World of Goo! Please note that Uplink and SpaceChem require tablets if you’re playing the Android version.
Buying the Humble Bundle for Android 3 also gets you the games on Windows, Mac, and Linux! (system requirements here)
This Bundle end on 29 august
StoryBundle is featuring their first bundle, the “Big Bang Bundle” in this bundle there are 5 Ebooks with the formula pay-what-you-want price and if you pay at least $7 you get two bonus books: the sequels to John Gone and Bypass Gemini.
This Bundle end too on 29 august and this is the complete list of all 7 books:
Undersea by Geoffrey Morrison
In a world flooded and irradiated by a nearly forgotten cataclysm generations passed, all that remains of civilization clings to life in two war-torn, city-sized submarines. For fifty years, the only peace between them has come from separation.
Now, young councilwoman Ralla Gattley has uncovered mysteries that will bring these two factions face-to-face, setting in motion events that will forever change their undersea world. Along the way she meets Thom Vargas, a bored fisherman and aspiring drunk who merely wants to climb one rung on the social ladder. Little does he know that single step may well put the fate of the world in his hands.
Journey to Hart’s Halo V1.0 Einstein’s Enigma by Lou Hood
Journey to Hart’s Halo is a near-future fantasy adventure, set in 2033 on the world’s first international space colony.
The project of eccentric technology billionaire Dr. Oliver Hart, Hart’s Halo is about to be populated by Zero Colony. Space-crazy twelve year old Davey Randolph’s dream is to win two of the twelve spots, for him and his mom, in a global lottery to spend five years aboard the Halo.
John Gone by Michael Kayatta
Sixteen-year-old John has stumbled across an abandoned wristwatch half-buried in the sand behind his house. Curious, he places it on his wrist; to his surprise, it won’t come off. Suddenly, each day at 3:14 P.M. John begins to uncontrollably teleport around the world. He might materialize anywhere–and must do what he can to survive until 3:14 A.M. when the watch takes him home again.
When a scientist mysteriously trapped far below the surface of the Earth makes contact through a hologram in the watch’s face, John learns that his travels will eventually kill him. Soon, he’s faced with an impossible choice: continue to endanger his life by using the watch, or switch places with the scientist and risk losing his freedom forever.
Bypass Gemini by Joseph Lallo
In a distant future, Trevor “Lex” Alexander was shaping up to be the next great race pilot until a fixed race got him banned from the sport. Reduced to making freelance deliveries, he thinks his life can’t get any worse. That’s when a package manages to get him mixed up with mobsters, a megacorp, and a mad scientist. Now his life depends on learning what their plans are, and how he can stop them.
The Heretic by Joseph Nassise
At the end of the First Crusade, the church created a monastic military order known as the Knights Templar. Now, rising up from the ashes of history, they are the Vatican’s last defense in the war between good and evil…
Knight Commander Cade Williams and the men of the Echo Team are the best the Vatican has to offer when it comes to protecting mankind from supernatural threats and enemies. But when the Templar Order itself comes under attack from a cabal of necromancers intent on seizing an ancient artifact for their own nefarious purposes, will the skills of Echo Team’s fearless leader, the man some call the Heretic, be enough to stop the slaughter?
The 2 Bonus books are:
Unstable Prototypes by Joseph Lallo

But in his life, luck like this never lasts long.
