Types

When specifying a type for a literary work, stick to the most generic type only. For example, An Accountability of Virtue is both a book and a (romance) novel, but for the purposes of this template it is of the same type as Shadows Remembered - a book.

Applying a category to the type is not necessary, but if you can find one in the list of category, use it.

Note: do not use {{cat tag|books}}. Category:Books is for the books written by Brandon Sanderson, not in-world literature.
