Next chance I get, or if someone else wants to do it, a disambig needs to be added at the top of this article's page to the dismbig. page, and this article's title needs to be added to the disambig. page, but I wanted to wait a little until the titling was better established.

Hmm. You know I hate disagreeing with you (well...), but I think there's not much here--the article boils down to the definition of "epic" as an adjective. Sorry pal. Drmies (talk) 05:41, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
It's possible, and I've considered that, but I think it will be enough. The problem and the need is, I think, demonstrated by the use of the word "epic" in numerous articles, yet the only article on the subject itself of this sort of epic is the one about epic poetry which doesn't exactly apply and so isn't terribly helpful. I think (know) that this will be a perfectly helpful and happy stub that will address the subject of epics whose only crime is a lack of rhyme. ChildofMidnight (talk) 05:49, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
These are characteristic of epic poetry, and not really epic novels, film and theater, the subject of this article. Novels/theater/film are called epic for the scope of the action and heroism of the characters. —Green Cardamom (talk) 07:22, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Hello, I'm working with OCLC, and we are algorithmically generating data about different Genres, like notable Authors, Book, Movies, Subjects, Characters and Places. We have determined that this Wikipedia page has a close affintity to our detected Genere of epic-fiction. It might be useful to look at  for more information. Thanks.

Clute & Grant define "high fantasy" more strictly than we do, which makes their term more useful than ours, I believe. We should attend to WorldCat's "epic fiction" and might well consider distinguishing "epic" distinct from "high" fantasy subgenre, or rearranging some material in the group of related articles. --P64 (talk) 00:43, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
