Maybe there should be a "characters from mythology" (or somesuch) category? There are enough gods and heroes here to justify it.JonathanMarkoff (talk) 21:37, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

That is what "Supernatural Beings" covers along with Vampires and the like. "Gods" is already a sub-cat of that. ML4E (talk) 21:39, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

That's a little generic. It seems to me that specific individual myth characters like Zeus, Perseus, Bryhilde, etc., should have an additional cat or subcat.JonathanMarkoff (talk) 21:42, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

See Category talk:Gods. We have an eclectic mix of unrelated mythologies but certainly worth a review. However, categorization for the sake of categorization can be counterproductive in making things more difficult to find. ML4E (talk) 21:45, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

Fantasy set in OTL[]

The template for "The Catcher in the Rhine" says "Fantasy set in OTL" while the one for "The Old Grind" says "Historical Fantasy." I think TCitR would be better left simply as "Fantasy," since it has no historical characters nor events. By contrast, TOG fits the description of "Fantasy set in OTL," since historical events and people are woven into the plot in a Forrest Gump fashion.Matthew Babe Stevenson (talk) 02:59, November 23, 2018 (UTC)

The spelling Harry Turtledove uses.[]

I find these footnotes redundant and not needed. The sub-sections will use the name and Turtledove's spelling with the first use bolded. Unless the name is a typo, which should then be corrected, it is a simple and logical deduction that that is the spelling Turtledove used. ML4E (talk) 22:52, March 8, 2019 (UTC)

I believe TR started it in Al-Ghazali and Kurt Schussnigg among others, and I monkey saw and monkey did.JonathanMarkoff (talk) 04:37, March 9, 2019 (UTC)
