There are two main stories that I am working on at moment. The first I'm presently fine with (it is a joint work with my wife Goldie), the second however is my work alone. The second is what I need some help with, I used to have several books and magazines as well as websites that I knew of with the information that I needed, however I now have very few if any of these resources left after multiple moves and the lose of three computers. So if anyone can help me, what I'd appreciate if you could, is any information on the following: 1) A listing of suns along with type, luminous intensity, and distance. 2) A detailed analysis of Venus, Uranus, and Europa. 3) Any notes on non-terrestrial evolution. Kind of odd things, I know.. but while I do want to be creative in this story, I at the same time do not wish to create a new planet in the Sol system, nor do I want to suddenly say there is a nebula there when there's actually a sun or the void between the arms of the galaxy.
