I have reverted your removal of the merge tag to the pages for individual works by this author. The quotes from these works should all be collected on the author's page. We only split out individual works when there is such a large number of quotes that the author's page becomes unwieldy (e.g. Charles Dickens). ~ UDScott 20:44, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

I worked very hard making all of those merge requests. the least you can do is have a discussion in the talk page why you feel it should be merged. --Pinkkeith 20:45, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
I would be happy to have the discussion with you, but I already explained my reasoning: separate pages for individual works are not encouraged, unless the amount of quotes from them causes the author's page to be too large. The works you have added are all short novels or novellas with a minimal amount of quotes. As such, the quotes really should be placed on the author's page. ~ UDScott 12:29, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
And as I now see, you have already made the merges - thanks! ~ UDScott 12:35, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
