Ram-Man seems to be of the opinion that this is an NPOV article (he has called for it to be deleted). I would disagree strongly on this. The article reflects entirely my reading of the book. It is highly implausible and it is a funny and worthwhile read at the same time because of some of the exquisite characterisation. When time permits I will give this novel the works, unless anyone cares to flesh it out in the interim. user:sjc
You and I seem to read Banks in very different ways... I thought it was one of Banks' best. What do you find implausible about it? -- Tarquin
Fair use rationale for Image:IainBanksEspedairStreet2.jpg
Image:IainBanksEspedairStreet2.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 lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
