I read "Burnt Toast" in a school text when I was younger and recently I have been trying to find this short story. However, I have been unable to find it anywhere. If anybody knows where I might find it online, your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:STMissionToHoratius.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 09:24, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Anthologies containing stories by Mack Reynolds[edit]

I found a story of Mack Reynolds in Fantasia e Fantascienza N. 6 (1963), an Italian digest from The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Then i suppose that also a 1963 issue of original magazine contains this story. The Italian title is Circoli clandestini - Speakeasy. Both story and anthology are not reported on this article. -- (talk) 18:01, 1 September 2008 (UTC) (Ancelli on

Other Biographical Information?[edit]

I remember the author's biography on several of his novels stating that Reynolds was a socialist agitator and persona non grata in several countries. Is there any independent confirmation of any of that, and should it be in this article? Rjhenn (talk) 05:32, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

If it is true, yes.

I am interested in the statement he was a 'professional mystery writer' in the late 1940's. No titles are given; what are they? (talk) 18:53, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Reynolds Family Info[edit]

The previous version of the biography had the following information:

La Verne is Reynolds’ only relative who remains publically listed today. She lives in Weaverville, CA with her daughter Desiree Brown and her 12 grandchildren. Other surviving relatives live in Redding, CA and Sacramento, CA.

I was not sure where to place this information, or if it even belonged in the body of the biography. Suggestions? Drx (talk) 23:08, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Recommend leaving it out unless it contributes to the understanding of this person OR if this person was so famous that leaving it out would be a gross omission. In any case, if it isn't sourced it must go, per WP:BLP. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 18:22, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Bibliography Section Deletion??[edit]

I suggest the following section of the Bibliography is deleted, as 1) it contains redundant items, both within itself and the rest of the bibliography; 2) a complete list--which this is not, by any means: just a quick look at the Internet Speculative Fiction Database shows that Reynolds' stories were anthologized in countless places--would double the size of the Bibliography.

Article needs re-assessing[edit]

The assessments were way out of date so I blanked them. Please re-assess.

Also, if you have a free-image or WP:FAIRUSE photo of Mr. Reynolds that would be appreciated. Absent that, a free image that is highly associated with him (e.g. a non-copyrightable or out-of-copyright book cover of one of his more well-known books or of one of his earliest books). davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 18:24, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
