I have changed the page to emphasize that only works set in the city of Rome qualify. (I was looking for a list of this kind and decided to build & update this list to find works easily). Another article with lists of all works has been created (everything transferred) for all works set in the Roman world.

I hope this is permissible. If not, please let me know, and I will create a new list for only works set in the city of Rome.

Authors John Maddox Roberts and Steven Saylor overlap the same time period with two similar characters, both essentially detectives. But they are in different places in the article. It shows that Roberts has a series, but appears that Saylor only has a book. He too has a series "Roma Sub Rosa". Student7 (talk) 12:00, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

What a mess![edit]

Can someone merge the two articles: Fiction set in ancient Rome and Fiction set in the Roman empire? Please? It's such a mess now.

In the Fiction set in the Roman empire article there are books set in the times of the Republic while "Empire" is the post-Republican phase of Rome!

Both articles have duplicate entries. It's nearly impossible to add to Fiction set in ancient Rome only those novels that are set in the city itself.

Either merge the two articles or delete Fiction set in the Roman empire which has less entries than the other one.
