Indie Sci Fi


Indie Fantasy of the month

If you are looking for some of the best indie fantasy science fiction has to over, look no further than Ryk Brown's awesome Frontier Saga. At over 14 books long, this military science fiction adventure is gripping all the way through.

Fans of military space opera and against impossible odds science fiction (lots of ship to ship battles, unexpected new-captain manning the helm of spaceship, lost crew trying to get home, etc) will love this one.

SO if you love military science fiction or space opera, do check this out. It's one of my favorite science fiction series right now, indie or not.
