I can see that Old Dickens isn't happy about this being under short stories, as well as this there are several other works that don't fit this category but are included anyway, such as songs, poems and a speech, as this is the most suitable category for them to fall under. A possible solution would be to rename Short Stories to Short Fiction. This category would be more inclusive towards various types of shorter fiction already included allowing for something like Troll Bridge to still be classified as a Short Story and An Ode to Multiple Universes to be classed as a Poem but for both to appear in the same category.

We discussed this problem before, but what's the value of a "miscellaneous" or such category if it means "uncategorised"? Likewise, categories of one don't make much sense: might as well leave the oddballs uncategorised or stick them somewhere close, like this. (There might be a category like "Background" for things like this, Diaries,Thud-A Historical Perspective and such.) --Old Dickens (talk) 19:35, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Maybe we could call them supplements? --Zdm (talk) 03:54, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Ah I see what you mean, in that case how about renaming all of these to Short Fiction, disregard the latter part of what I said, we could try something like this Short Fiction:Troll Bridge along with Short Fiction:Thud-A Historical Perspective, that way it categorizes all of the short stories along with the other works that best fit into this one category and it eliminates the miscellaneous or one entry categories (e.g. Poems, Songs) by grouping them all together, or at least it will seriously reduce them. --Jagra (talk) 20:31, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
I'm drawn back to the "Background" category, but it would entail updating other pages. --Old Dickens (talk) 05:01, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
