Book bundle for the lockdown!

Stuck at home? Need something else besides your Magic Bullet CDs and MP3s to amuse you? Fiona Moore's AI mystery novel Driving Ambition is one of many great books in the Bundoran Buddies book bundle (with a bonus AI story, "Seal", included in the collection Lazarus Risen). For just $15, less than the price of a trade paperback these days, you get 12 books, including, as well as Driving Ambition, works by Robert Sawyer, Tanya Huff, Brad C Anderson and Madeline Ashby.
