"Although there are some extreme cases, for instance Herman Brusselmans' early 2006 short story would rather get The Dollarsigns in the Eyes of Mother Theresa (short story) as a page name, than without the qualifier." I think this line should be removed, I se no reason why this would be a qualified name, unless there is a well known play, poem or documentary of the same name.

At some point we'll need a proper discussion about (Smith novel) (Lennon song). There has not yet been one. In ictu oculi (talk) 16:21, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
It isn't clear that there's support in the wider editorship for the current state of WP:NCB. Every time this has come up apart from the 1 or 2 who seem convinced that modern authors should be treated as mononyms as much as Tolstoy there's a view that (John Lennon song) etc is a better model. See Talk:Mariana (Monica Dickens novel) for an example of a case where calling the author "Dickens" would be ridiculous. In ictu oculi (talk) 19:28, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
You'll need an RFC for this as it affects thousands of articles. In the meantime, please stop wilfully ignoring the longstanding guideline. WP:CONSISTENCY is at play here. --Rob Sinden (talk) 09:16, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
