Category talk:Novels by Author

Is this really needed[edit]

...when the Category:Authors already links to the individual authors, with a link in turn to each author's works category?

Also, the title is problematic. Not all works by all those authors are novels. We also have novellas, novelettes, and short stories (divided for BattleTech purposes into "short fiction" of up to 40,000 words and "long fiction" of more than that), plus gaming sourcebooks, scenarios, etc.. Why limit the category to novels, the "Works by [author]" categories don't differentiate between different types of fiction either? I think even art is included in the catch-all definition of "work" as far as our categories are concerned. Frabby (talk) 09:18, 6 April 2018 (EDT)
