Gladiator link[edit]

Here is "Gladiator" at Internet Archive: http://www.archive.org/details/Gladiator_261 69.224.122.251 (talk) 11:04, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

incorrect citation[edit]

Wylie's book Sons and Daughters of Mom is a nonfiction work not a novel. It is his last follow-up to Vipers. Other web sites incorrectly list it as a novel. Additionally, the article "The" is not in the title. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.196.109.230 (talk) 07:30, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Unclear[edit]

I edited the sentence "Writing as he did when less potent technology was available, he applied engineering principles and the scientific method quite broadly in his work." It was unclear what the first half of the sentence meant. Technology less potent than what? And what does the availability of only "less potent" technology have to do with his tendency to "apply engineering principles and the scientific method quite broadly in his work"? It now reads as, "He applied engineering principles and the scientific method quite broadly in his work." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.115.61.131 (talk) 12:05, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Good edit! I've been meaning to fix that sentence for years. "Less potent" indeed; Wylie was an advisor to the Atomic Energy Commission. GroveGuy (talk) 16:33, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
