Fair use rationale for Image:Hilldiggers.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Hilldiggers.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 22:35, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Cyberpunk? Postcyberpunk?[edit]

I don't suppose anyone has bothered to come up with authorities who apply these genre labels to Asher's work--? "Space opera" is almost certainly apt and verifiable, but these two might prove more of a challenge--particularly the latter, since "postcyberpunk" has yet to establish itself in the critical/reviewing vocabulary outside on-line discussion and advocates for its entry in WP.

Series Order[edit]

Prador Moon and Shadow of the Scorpion are explicitly numbered #1 and #3 respectively by the publishers. Hilldiggers is just labelled "A book in the Polity Series" but is the only one published between the other two, and no other book is numbered as Polity #2. I do not have any of the short story collections, so have not (re)moved any of the short story lines to sit under the collection. --Quuux (talk) 03:27, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

"He worked as a machinist and machine programmer from 1979 to 1987 and as a gardener from 1979 to 1987."[edit]

Is this accurate? Was he a machinist/machine programmer and a gardener simultaneously? DrSkrud (talk) 18:08, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
