All writers research, even if that research just consists of their subconscious processing random tidbits they come across in their daily lives. The sources below are among the ones I have intentionally sought out and have most directly influenced stories I’ve written.

I’ve included links for convenience (or frustration, when paywalls are involved: but keep in mind that academic authors typically love it when interested researchers contact them to ask about getting a copy of an article). The books can be purchased through Bookshop (official disclosure of the obvious: I earn a small amount for affiliate sales).
