Let's Get Started[edit]

Okay, so I started this article because this book is great and I thought it needed it's own wikipedia article. Plus I needed something to do and this book sounded good enough. Now I started the article and filled in what I could. I will be updating but if you would like to help, you can update the ones that are already up or add these sections:

  • Plot introduction
  • Plot summary
  • Characters in "Boomsday"
  • Major themes
  • Allusions/references to other works
  • Literary significance & criticism
  • Allusions/references from other works
  • Allusions/references to actual history, geography and current science
  • Awards and nominations
  • Trivia

Also it would be nice if we could get a picture going on in this thing. I would do it but I hate the whole licensing process or whatever. I always fail at it. :)

I have removed the peer-review tag as this is nowhere near ready as an article for that stage. To be considered it would need a lot more by way of ==Major themes== and / or

Literary significance & criticism[edit]

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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:BoomsdayCover.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 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.
