This is a list of libertarian fiction of various sorts which I am compiling. If you would like to add to the list, please email me or post to the Libfic list. I'll compile the suggestions and re-post it from time-to-time as it grows. The list is as broad as possible to encourage readers of all types of fiction. Not every item is explicitly libertarian, some just pose interesting questions which libertarians can use for discussion groups or classroom fare.
