4 Indie Authors that I want to Investigate

I love Indie books, but there are so many out there that it can be hard to know what to give my time to. Based on research and interviews, here are four independent authors that seem interesting enough to take a punt on!

As Far as They Had Got – A “Follow-My-Leader” Story

I just read a very silly story by E. Phillips Oppenheim (1866-1946), William Pett Ridge (1859–1930), Arthur Morrison (1863-1945), Horace Annesley Vachell (1861–1955), Barry Pain (1864-1928), Charles Andrew Garvice (1850-1920) and Richard Marsh (1857-1915). It was originally published in The Strand magazine.
