Discussion of the Infobox short story pattern template[edit]

If I add an "image" line, will it work? See The Unicorn in the Garden for the issue at hand. Thanks! Karen | Talk | contribs 04:46, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

As "short stories" are normally published within another publication it is not relevant to have a cover image element to this infobox. In this case the illustration is useful and is best included in the body of the article at a relevant point of the text. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 09:00, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
Makes sense to me. Thanks! Karen | Talk | contribs 09:40, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
