The Handmaid’s Tale isn’t just making people nervous about the upcoming dystopian apocalypse, it’s also amping up interest in female-authored science fiction and fantasy. Humble Bundle’s giving people a chance to check out a ton of titles.

The latest collection from Humble Bundle is focused on “Women of Science Fiction and Fantasy”, featuring books from Octavia E. Butler, Robin McKinley and several other prominent female authors from Open Road Media. For anyone eager to discover more female authors after diving into The Handmaid’s Tale, which has been adapted into an upcoming Hulu series, this is an excellent place to start. You can check out free previews and chapters on all of them beforehand — except for one, which hasn’t been revealed yet.
As is true Humble Bundle fashion, the collections start at $US1 ($1.30) donations, and the full $US15+ ($20+) package includes about $US125 ($163) worth of digital books. Money goes to help First Book, which provides books for kids in low-income areas. Donors can also choose for some of the money to go a second charity of their choice, using the PayPal Giving Fund. This Humble Monday package continues through March 30.
