The term is "fiction", not "fictions". Prhartcom (talk) 18:29, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, and thanks for commenting! I created Category:Interactive fictions as a "set category" for the fictional works, as opposed to the "topic category" Category:Interactive fiction. The plural "interactive fictions" is used in some published sources[1][2][3], and it's in Wiktionary (not added by me). However, it's true that "fiction" is usually a non-count noun. Do you think "Interactive fiction works" or "Works of interactive fiction" would be an improvement? EALacey (talk) 19:03, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply! I think you convinced me to leave it alone. The Wiktionary entry was convincing (although the following example is for a different kind of fiction than what we're talking about: "The company’s accounts contained a number of blatant fictions.") Even the Wikipedia article on fiction says "these kinds of fictions" one time (although it uses fiction as an uncountable noun a few other times). And I see what you mean how "set categories" are always plural. Prhartcom (talk) 19:19, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Personally, I can't stand "Interactive fictions". I prefer "Works of interactive fiction". Ntsimp (talk) 14:34, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
