    There s this concept in fantasy writing, world building Sci fi too It s pretty self explanatory because these books are not taking place in our universe, it s up to the author to give us all the details to paint the picture, provide shading in just the right places, ensure we can tell what we are supposed to be looking at Economics, politics, interpersonal relations,

    Well Sigh I m deciding what to write Ok Truth.I m disappointed with Gorky Park , book one in the Soviet Union s Inspector Arkady Renko series Oh, it s a fine inventive entertainment for a mystery, with a lot of twists and near death escapes, tons of corrupt cops and officials, and so many betrayals and hidden motives I am amazed the body count wasn t higher considering the undrained swamps that Renko wades
