Deep Vellum is offering themed eBook bundles for purchase on our website. For $20, send four Deep Vellum eBooks to someone who desperately needs a literary virtual hug while they stay at home. Hey, you might be that person. That’s okay too. Bundle themes include:
Travel through time and space to explore our world’s history through these gorgeous, wildly different novels, moving from a little-known battle on the US-Mexico border in the 1800s to the intertwined lives of three women in Peru during the height of the Shining Path insurgency.
These novels are bound up in travel to new places: the theory behind leaving home, the places one might go, and the reasons why. Through heartache and adventure, these characters explore memory, place, and discovery.
Take a tour through our catalog of Oulipian authors, loose members of a group who impose structural restrictions on their writing (mathematical, geometric, and beyond) in order to investigate the possibilities of verse.
THE ONE WHO DREAMS OF DIFFERENT WORLDS
These books dream of possibilities untold, speculating on bodies and futures that bend the realms of reality and follow exploration beyond the edges of what we know.

WOMEN WRITERS ACROSS THE GLOBE
Only about 3% of books read in the U.S. are in translation, and an even smaller number than that are by women. Deep Vellum’s mission includes championing underrepresented voices. Here, those voices include women from Brazil, Indonesia, Algeria/France, and Denmark. This is only a sampler of the women’s voices in our catalog, which strives for gender parity. Use our Dealer’s Choice pack to purchase more ebooks by women!
MAGICAL REALISM AND MORE
Are you a fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez or Isabel Allende? These Deep Vellum titles explore magical realist or fabulist themes, inserting surreal elements to reckon with reality. Traditionally, magical realism is rooted in a postcolonial outlook. In our collection below, characters grapple with borders, identity, and cultural history through myth, fantasy, and nightmare.
LATIN AMERICAN LITERATURE
Literature from Latin America has seen a renaissance, thanks to seasoned and creative translators and proliferating independent presses broadening English readers’ horizons. From our very first title to our upcoming seasons, Deep Vellum is determined to publish beloved and up-and-coming authors from south of the U.S. border. Download this bundle to read some of the deeper cuts from Deep Vellum’s Latin American collection.
