This holiday break, spend your time feeding your mind with some of master storyteller Neil Gaiman‘s rarest books via Humble Bundle. Their latest book collection is full of great finds for Gaiman fans everywhere: out-of-print comic anthologies, unreleased short stories, near-impossible-to-find audio performances, never-published-before books — this bundle has it all. But the best part is: You get to decide how much you want to pay for everything!
In case you’re not familiar with the concept, Humble Bundle is a digital store that offers video games, comics, ebooks, and other cool stuff bundled together using a Pay What You Want scheme. Each bundle has three tiers. The lowest tier is the basic bundle which lets you pay for as low as $1 (about P50), if you so choose. The middle tier is set at a minimum of $8 (about P400) and gives you more than double of what you get for the basic bundle. If you pay $15 (about P750) or more, you unlock the highest tier which gives you access to some really cool stuff that’s worth hundreds of dollars if purchased individually. The bundles are only available for a limited time, so if you see something you like, you better act fast!
