Help A Great Cause
♦ With the US midterm elections just around the corner, Humble Bundle has just launched a fun and informative selection of curated titles in support of a more perfect union. The Humble Charity Book Bundle: Get the Vote Out 100% supporting the ACLU focuses on civics, volunteerism, and positive resistance – with one cookbook, an angry bear, Cory Doctorow, and a few dystopian novels and comics in the mix too…
Participating publishers coming together for this project include DC Comics, IDW, Image Comics, Lonely Planet, Microcosm Publishing, No Starch Press, Oni Press, Quirk, Skyhorse, and Tachyon.
Working in conjunction with the ACLU and writer Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book of Eli), this promotion will be the first to offer the new science fiction anthology, RESIST: Tales From a Future Worth Fighting Against, featuring some of today’s most celebrated SF writers.
100% of all proceeds from this promotion will be donated to the ACLU.
The Humble Charity Book Bundle: Get the Vote Out 100% supporting the ACLU will run from October 22 through November 5 at 11 a.m. Pacific time.

“I created RESIST! as an opportunity for today’s best science-fiction authors to speak to the current socio-political moment through a sci-fi lens,” stated the anthology’s editor, Gary Whitta. “Though the 27 stories in the anthology are set in the future, or on other worlds entirely, the themes explored are rooted entirely in the here and now. My intention for this project was always that it would benefit a worthwhile and relevant cause, and so I couldn’t be more thrilled to launch RESIST! in partnership with the ACLU, with that organization benefiting from the proceeds of every sale.”
“We are heartened by the outpouring of support from writers and illustrators who are championing civil rights and the work of the ACLU,” said Danielle Silber, Director of Strategic Partnerships for the ACLU. “Through their art they are advancing democracy and helping us to make dystopia a fiction. We appreciate their and Humble Bundle’s efforts to bolster voter education to ensure everyone votes like their rights depend on it.”
