This thread is to compile a list of the best of the indie (self published) science fiction. There's some good stuff in the indie realm, but it's often hard to sort through all the crap. Know about a diamond in the rough science fiction book that's not yet been picked up by a major publisher? Then share it here! By indie science fiction we are talking about SELF PUBLISHED or works published by small print presses that are NOT mainstream publishers (the big six like Harper Collins, TOR, Bantam, etc). Note: this is not a forum for self published authors to hawk their works. I want legit recommendations. You are not allowed to promote your OWN works here. If I suspect this, you will be shamed for it on this forum!
