Looking for a good book to read, but tired of sucker punches and nihilistic misery when all you want to do is relax? You’re in luck . . . Behold! A gallery of conservative and libertarian-friendly fiction.
Note: We at CLFA have not read all of the books listed, though we have made an effort to screen them for quality. We recommend reading the free excerpt at the beginning of the book before buying. Also, as much as possible, we have tried to give a brief description of each book’s genre. Much conservative/libertarian fiction is indie, which means that it does not conform to standard Big Publishing genre categories. (In our opinion, this is just another reason to love it – originality and intellectual liberty!)
