Sometimes, when you find an author you really like, there’s nothing better than just sitting down and reading as much as you can by that author, one title after another. The same goes for topics. Sometimes, you want to read three or four or even five locked-room mysteries back to back. Or you want to read as many science fiction stories as you can get your hands on. Well, if this sounds like you, then you’re in luck! Hoopla, one of our ebook services, has a series of substantially sized ebooks called Megapacks. Each of these contains hundreds, if not thousands of pages of content, all based on the works of a single author or a single specialized genre. While there are too many to list them all here (my search brought up 341 titles!) here are the highlights that I thought would appeal.

F. Scott Fitzgerald Contains poetry, essays, and short stories–but surprisingly enough, not The Great Gatsby!

Whodunit? Who doesn’t love a good mystery? This collection contains works from Sydney J. Bounds, Arlette Lees, and more!

King Arthur Join the Knights of the Round Table on their noble quests!

Bram Stoker Curious to see what else Stoker wrote (besides Dracula?) Check out this collection for titles like Lair of the White Worm, The Judge’s House, and The Man.

Arsene Lupin The a generous selection of this classic gentleman thief’s wild adventures can all be found in one convenient volume!

Arthur Conan Doyle We’ve all heard of Sherlock Holmes. But, have you read some of Conan Doyle’s other works, such as The Captain of the Polestar, Lot No. 249, or The Sealed Room?

Algernon Blackwood This author is one of my favorites when it comes to a good ghost story!
