AFAIK (wikipedia:James Patterson) there's not a trace of the fantastic in his works; so, how does he fit into ISFDB:Policy#Rules of Acquisition, especially point 7? Another problem is that the page is a mess of machine-imported foreign editions (and even those that I understand are mostly impossible to identify - though this time the fault is not entirely with the notoriously "creative" German translators/publishers, but also his habit of selecting titles from nursery rhymes that are hard to translate as such); discovering what is what would require a non-trivial research in languages foreign to me, for very little outcome. Even though somebody has already taken the trouble to separate individual series, and I've just done what I could to weed out the most obvious duplicates, I wouldn't mind if the problem were solved by deleting the guty completely... --JVjr 10:58, 22 Mar 2007 (CDT)
