Orphaned references in Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "books.google.com":

  • From Anti-Catholicism: Scheina, Robert L. Latin America's Wars: The Age of the Caudillo, 1791–1899 p. 33 (2003 Brassey's) ISBN 978-1-57488-452-4
  • From Rhema: The Fight of Every Believer by Terry Law ISBN 1-57794-580-8 page 45
  • From God in Buddhism: Gethin, Rupert. "Cosmology and meditation: from the Agganna Sutta to the Mahayana" in Williams, Paul. Buddhism, Vol. II. Routledge 2004. ISBN 0-415-33228-1 pgs 104, 126 [1]

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 17:07, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

terraforming[edit]

"The television series Defiance (2013–2015) is set in an Earth devastated by the "Pale Wars", a war with seven alien races referred to as the "Votan", followed by the "Arkfalls", which terraforms Earth to an almost unrecognizable state. Unlike most apocalyptic works, in this one Earth is not inhospitable, and humanity is not on the verge of extinction."

maybe transforming could be better than terraforming. Terra means earth in many languages derived from Latin. Transforming earth into earth makes no sense in that context. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:2C5:C600:22D2:C514:C4B9:FB98:5903 (talk) 23:17, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
