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 raised goes directly to Barrow Neurological Institute to research cures for Alzheimer’s, ALS, brain tumors, Parkinson’s Disease, and more.


The first monthly bundle will be available starting Feb. 22, 2016, and will be delivered as a thank you for making a donation of at least $5. Know you’re going to want all four bundles? A $25 donation to Barrow scores you every monthly bundle.

At the end of this project, there are plans 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.

Geeky Giving February 2016 Book Bundle

geekygiving2Geeky Giving is proud to share it’s first monthly book bundle featuring original science fiction and fantasy works by bright stars within the genre fiction community.

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.

  • “Some Other Day” by Mary Robinette Kowal
  • “The True Story of the Unsmiling Moon” by Karina Cooper writing as K.C. Alexander
