Want to know some top indie reads

Any recommendations out there? I'm interested in checking the best indie reads available.

I'm currently absorbed in the Wool series and was going to check out Hunter:A Thriller next.

Any others I should be looking out for?

Cheers,

L.W.

Give "http://www.amazon.com/Turing-Evolved.../dp/B004XR4Y5S "Turing Evolved" a look, besides, it's free.

By the way I picked up your book (from your avatar) and it's now on my TBR.

It can really depend on what you like to read, but I've got a reasonable list of authors that go to the top of my list in the indie space:

David Michael - a fairly dark fantasy/horror writer (I enjoyed The Summoning Fire as by intro to his work)
Hugh Howey - needs very little in the way of advertising these days (Wool - of course)
John A A Logan - for fantastic writing in a dark literary style (try The Survival of Thomas Ford)
Thomas Brookside - with a really interesting take on histories retold (try The Last Days of Jericho)
Glen Krisch - I enjoy his dark horror/thrillers (try Where Darkness Dwells)
Simon Royle - for some fast moving thrillers (try Bangkok Burn)
M H Mead - for some sci-fi cyber/tech thrillers that aren't too heavy but fun to read (try Fate’s Mirror)
Nancy Fulda - for exquisitely written science fiction short stories
Michael R Hicks - has some great thrillers (try Season of the Harvest if you like conspracy thrillers)

There's more - there's more.

Actually, there are some review sites that specialise in indie content. Many are linked to centrally at the Indie View: http://www.theindieview.com/latest-i...round-the-web/
