Rename to BattleCorps publications? (Done.)
BattleCorps publishes far more canonical material than just stories - to boot, it includes scenarios and now also entire novels. There's also their (canonical) news section. I therefore suggest renaming the Category as indicated, to encompass a broader range of content. Opinions? Frabby 03:54, 21 May 2009 (PDT)

Sub-category of Fiction
Revanche, I disagree with the subcategorisation of the BattleCorps fiction on two accounts:
- Not all BattleCorps publications are short stories (we also have scenarios, newscast and entire novels), and not all are even fiction (see Ardath Mayhar's essay about the writing of The Sword and the Dagger).
- The Category:Fiction master category is for (non-canonical) fan fiction on this site. It would be presumptous for BTW to sort canonically published fiction as a sub-category of this site's own fan fiction.
I think the Fiction category is sort of misnamed and should be renamed "Fan Fiction" to stress what it really is (and what not). Frabby 14:28, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
