Curated by Anthea Sharp
Sometimes gaming is the best escape. Until virtual reality gets a little too real...
Welcome to the Game Masters Bundle–eight stories of gamer-themed fiction that explore the intersection of pixels and reality. Each of these tales takes a gamer-centric look at the world, tackling big issues with plenty of fun and geeky goodness along the way.
I scoured the web to find the best indie authors of gamer-set books, and am thrilled to present this StoryBundle selection. Whether you're in the mood for a modern-day coming of age tale packed with humor, or a gritty speculative dystopian future, these bestselling and award-winning authors deliver, with stories that explore the boundaries of immersive gaming.
Join the hackers and heroes adventuring between these pages, but beware! Losing the game has dire consequences – not only for the players, but the entire world. – Anthea Sharp
