"A few weeks ago, Nader was working the phones in Washington, trying to reach the people he had fictionalized. “I feel that if I am going to do that to people, I want to give them all a heads up,” he said. “It’s been done to me, you know.” In the novel “Still Life with Woodpecker,” by Tom Robbins, published in 1980, Nader appears as the romantic obsession of a mythical princess (“She fell quickly asleep and dreamt of Ralph Nader”). Five years later, the science-fiction writer Greg Bear wrote “Eon,” which portrays Nader as “a saintly figure, a hero in a wasteland,” whose followers win landslide elections in North America and Western Europe (in 2011) and bring down the Soviet Union (in 2012). “You see, that’s science-fiction utopia,” Nader said. “Nobody can give that any credibility.”"

Unless this is your very first day on Wikipedia, you should know that the pages for almost every movie, television show, and book give away major plot points. Primium mobile (talk) 18:00, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
