A Canticle for Liebowitz[edit]

Hi there; I have not touched your article containing the Latin translations. I have also read the book. I know that there are links present: do you not feel that a short introductory paragraph explaining in very broad outline the nature of the book and its author may enhance your article? If not, ok fair enough, you wrote it.--Anthony.bradbury 18:47, 24 September 2006 (UTC)


Weird serendipity. I've been meaning to get a copy of CfL for years and years, since reading Space (Mitchener) sometime in the 80s. I finally got a copy yesterday, and got a bit flumoxed by all the Latin ... then I found your article, posted mere days ago :) Thanks for that. Jon. 29 Sept 2006.

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 00:15, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
