SAN FRANCISCO —Indie tech-book publisher No Starch Press is partnering with Humble Bundle to offer customers a pay-what-you-want ebook deal that raises money for charity. This highly anticipated three-week promotion builds upon the Bay Area companies’ past collaborations, which have raised over $2.7 million for various nonprofit organizations to date.
“Hacking, by No Starch Press” runs until Dec. 19 and benefits the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC)—an alliance of more than 50 national nonprofits engaged in direct advocacy and education to uphold First Amendment principles. “The NCAC’s fight against censorship in all its forms is an important mission and one that we’re proud to support through this bundle,” said No Starch publisher Bill Pollock.
For their part, the organization is happy to be part of the deal. “NCAC is very grateful to No Starch Press and Humble Bundle for once again supporting the fight against censorship,” said Chris Finan, Executive Director of the NCAC. “Things could hardly be worse than they are right now as challenges to books in schools and libraries reach record levels for the second year in a row. This support will fund our work to assist students, parents, teachers, librarians, and community members defend the freedom to read.”
The promotion lets readers pick from a pricing tier between $1 and $30 for up to 18 DRM-free titles, allocating a portion of their payment to the publisher’s chosen charities. The “Hacking, by No Starch Press” bundle, has a total retail value of over $600 and offers fan favorites like Hacking APIs, the latest editions of bestsellers such as Black Hat Python, and timeless classics, including Jon Erickson’s Hacking.
