Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set – Katsuhiro Otomo

We said fantasy was a broad genre, and we’d include dystopian anima and manga in that. This beautifully present six hardcover box set is the complete story of Akira, a dystopian saga set in Neo-Tokyo, a city recovering from thermonuclear attack where the streets have been ceded to motorcycle gangs and the rich and powerful run dangerous experiments on destructive, supernatural powers that they cannot control.

Inheritance Cycle Box Set – Christopher Paolini

It’s been a few years since this was released, but if you know someone who missed it the first time around this trade paperback box set is great value and the covers are really beautiful! Perfect fantasy, complete with dragon.

The 100 Complete Box Set – Kass Morgan

It’s nuclear post-apocalyptic hell, wrapped up in a pretty four book box set! This exciting series, made into a series last year was released as a box set for the first time this year, but sadly it’s only available in the US (though it does ship to the UK).

Maze Runner Box Set – James Dashner

Imagine waking up in a lift, and all you can remember is your name… Maze Runner is a hugely successful YA sci-fi fantasy series that has been thrilling book readers for years. More recently the series has been adapted for movie and if you know a fan, they can catch up with the books before The Death Cure movie hits cinemas in 2018 with this stunning box set.
