Having copies of a series of Boeing heavy bomber design studies from the 1941-43 period - and many of them are VERY odd - I have no doubt that all the above designs were ideas that Boeing engineers put to paper.

A fun patent;

"An aircraft adapted for covert deployment and having low vulnerability to hostile detection and aggression is provided. The aircraft includes a fuselage having a pair of Sidewalls and a bottom. The sidewalls and bottom form an armored payload bay. The aircraft additionally includes a pair of wings connected to the fuselage. The wings have a fixed wingspan constrained Such that the aircraft can be transported within a larger aircraft. This allows for the aircraft to be aerial deployed from the larger aircraft. Each of the Sidewalls include at least one pulse ejector thrust augmentor bank that is canted outward. Therefore, a thrust exhaust produced by each PETA bank is directed down and away from a centerline of the payload bay. Furthermore, the bottom of the aircraft is adapted to allow ingress and egress- military troops, from the payload bay."

I'm not sure which "massive twin boom" you're talking about, but I have top view and some multi-view drawings of at LEAST 15 different twin-boom heavy long-range bomber designs from Boeing in that time frame.
