Inclusion criteria[edit]

Mariners or former mariners who have written about maritime matters. In this context mariners include sailors. -Arb. (talk) 01:14, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Why limit it to mariners? That would leave out Patrick O'Brian, C.S. Forester, and others that we might like to include.. . . . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talkcontribs) 16:44, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
It's intended as a starting suggestion (should have made that clear). Feel free to evolve it. -Arb. (talk) 23:53, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
OK, since I've added Forester and another reader has added O'Brian, let's say, "Writers notable for their works on maritime subjects, including both fiction and non-fiction."
If it becomes much larger we may want to split it into two sections (groups) along those lines. -Arb. (talk) 13:19, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
This really needs to be organized I propose the following groups:
  • Non-Fiction
  • Children's Fiction
  • Fiction

I think we'll have arguments over the latter two -- why not just Fiction and Non? . . . . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talkcontribs) 19:51, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Some of the authors are exclusively for children: Arthur Ransome,
