History

In 2013, the Cabrera Brothers Company launched Free Bundle Magazine, a quarterly Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine delivered in Portable Document Format (PDF). Shortly after launch, the magazine found a permanent home on the Internet Archive, next to some of the most prestigious magazines of the genre.

In early 2022, the brothers rebranded the magazine into All Cool Reads, a daily digital outlet for fiction, news, and rumors on publishing, popular culture, and the arts. The quarterly PDF version of the magazine also went through a similar change and became an annual presenting the most outstanding essays, articles, and short fiction of the year.

Over 20,000 readers and growing.
