articles on books[edit]

To show the notability of a book, the article on it must say more than that it has been publiwshed, and give the link to a notable author. The criteria are at WP:BOOK. You need to describer the books, both the plot briefly and also the publishing history, and give references to references providing substantial coverage from 3rd party independent published reliable sources, print or online, but not blogs or press releases, or material derived from press releases-- Published reviews in newspapers and magazines are the usual sources for published books. You should also give references to any published criticism--there will be some for well known books, and any librarian can help you find it.

when you can't find this sort of material, or don't have the time for it, the best course is usually to start ouyt making a redirect to the article on the authro. DGG ( talk ) 21:11, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

As far as Edna O'Brien goes, I am not going to change the article from its current form, but as you appear to be quite familiar with her work I won't contest any reasonable edits you make. I'll remove her from my already overlong watchlist. Cheers! Quis separabit? 22:49, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Whatever, dude, go for it! Quis separabit? 00:08, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Cite book[edit]

Regarding your use of the template {{Cite book}} in several articles--for example, in this contribution to Jean Racine: The field "authorlink=" is used when the author of the cited work has a Wikipedia article. In this case, you are citing the Introduction, whose author, Michael Howcroft, has no Wikipedia article, so the field is not needed. To show that you are citing the Introduction, use the field "chapter=" instead. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reply right here.

Sartor Resartus[edit]

It doesn't look like mud to me! But that's one of the problems when people use different screen-shapes, brightness, user-preferences etc. On one computer screen 300px will look right, on another it will look huge. I uploaded that image myself back in 2009. I still have the Sullivan edition of Sartor, so I could upload a higher quality version, though I don't know whether that would make a difference. Paul B (talk) 20:41, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Of course the original serial and book-versions were not illustrated, so there is no specific "look" to Sartor as there is for Tristram Shandy, with its blank pages etc, but I could upload more of the many illustrations to the Sullivan version if you wish to have more images.

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Dæmonomania may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Disambiguation link notification for December 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Richard Rorty, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Oblivion (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
