My geirlanesskog.com site will host my more commercial content. Published fiction, artwork, blogs, that sort of stuff, leaving geir.org as a personal site.
I'll add links to other publishing sites here once I get that far.
Not in any way an endorsement, but places I go often:
For buying the best Poser stuff (and pretty good free stuff too), I go to
For mostly the free stuff, but also some purchases, plus artwork and discussion groups which help me come up with ideas, there's Renderosity.
I've posted my art on my gallery at
Renderosity and as a result, I've become published on other sites (no
money in it, but I'm not about to quit my day job).
A couple of my pictures are available at Desktop Starships.
For Space News, I always check:
Try NASA for cool rocket science stuff.
Mark Wade's Encyclopedia Astronautica site has even better info on all sorts of space related things - though it seems to have gone downhill in the last couple of years.
To see how many planets are out there try the ExtraSolar Planets Encyclopedia site, or look for bad asteroids at the Current Impact Risks site.
And the Solar System Simulator is always fun.
If you want to devise a realistic science fiction spaceship, check out the Atomic Rocket web site by Winchell Chung.
If you want a good blog on interstellar travel and current space research try Centauri Dreams.
For news and historical facts about the Russian/Soviet space program try Russian Space Web (and yeah, I bought his book. It's pretty cool, if you're into that sort of stuff.)
Celestia is a cool free program
for to explore the Universe in 3D (or 4D for that matter). It hasn't been
updated in five years, but it still runs on Windows 8.1 at least...
Notable Nearby Stars is a good reference for, uh... notable nearby stars....
Every day, I visit Wikipedia
as a reference or just to read the article of the day.
If you need information on various countries and territories, try the CIA World Fact Book (they almost always get it right, don't they?)
