Books without Wikipedia articles[edit]

Books without Wikipedia articles shouldn't be in this template - this is a navigation aid, not a complete list of Patterson's books. From WP:NAV: "Red links should be avoided unless they are very likely to be developed into articles, and even if they do, editors are encouraged to write the article first." The complete list of Patterson's books is located at James Patterson bibliography; there is no need to duplicate it here. — Mr. Stradivarius (have a chat) 12:10, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm still seeing IPs adding books to this template that don't have Wikipedia articles - just to make it clear, my position hasn't changed since I wrote the above comment back in September. It would be much better if people could simply write the articles first. — Mr. Stradivarius (have a chat) 08:45, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
