Time Patrol[edit]

Hi, I am French and I am sorry to see that there is no item about the Poul Anderson's book : Time Patrol.

Can someone write something about the novel (see here in French) or the novella (see here) ? Thank you.

Lost works[edit]

I have just read an interesting article Great Lost Manuscripts of Science Fiction and Fantasy. It might make the basis of a good article, if anyone with the requisite knowledge feels inclined. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:42, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

{{WikiProject Science Fiction}}[edit]

Shouldn't there be a |novels=yes switch here? There exists Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Science fiction task force the science fiction novels taskforce, which logically should be shared between the two projects. -- (talk) 00:59, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Additional editors requested[edit]

Having a dispute with an editor at List of fictional elements, materials, isotopes and atomic particles who apparently doesn't understand that a) wikis are not reliable sources, and b) list items should have some indication of significance (barring the establishment of specific inclusion criteria, at least). Thank you for your assistance. DonIago (talk) 19:03, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
