Check out Phil Tucker’s author website, specifically his About page. If you want to go full-tilt boogie on writing, his efforts are interesting.
What caused me to recommend? His ‘The Chronicles of the Black Gate’ is a good epic fantasy series. I was curious about what got him there. It is in the traditions of the great authors I have loved for decades.
On an entirely different note, if you like major publishing house feel in the books you read and a sci-fi space opera murder mystery set in a dramatic detailed society far out in the distant future galaxy, try ‘A Memory Called Empire’ by Arkady Martine.
