Two stories on their own is no good to anyone. The page should either list all of Ian's short stories, or none of them. It's about him, after all - not Warhammer 40K fiction. And he's written a lot of short fiction :-)Tanzeelat (talk) 14:57, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

These are needed. --Beyond silence 16:13, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
Why are they needed? Let's not get into an edit war. The bibliography as it was originally gave details of novels, novellas and collections. If you want to add the Warhammer 40K stories, then we should add all of Ian's short fiction. Or create a separate page for the Deathwing anthology.Tanzeelat (talk) 16:19, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Vital data[edit]

We give YoB 1943 in the lead sentence and PoB St Albans, England, in the hidden footer template {{Persondata}}.

External link ISFDB gives North Shields, Northumberland, England, UK; 20 April 1943 [1]. SFE gives St Albans, Hertfordshire: 20 April 1943 [2].

SFE should be used more generally as a source. --P64 (talk) 22:15, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
