delete. This stub presents an imaginary book as it it were real. There is nothing in it worth saving or merging. There is already a good stub on this same book under the name De Vermiis Mysteriis. AlainV 07:57, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)

  • Redirect for spelling. I just learned, yet again, that trojan/worm coders love literary references. SWAdair | Talk 08:25, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Redirect for spelling, don't delete. You might consider redirecting it to "De Vermis Mysteriis". I don't understand why a fictional book can't have an article of its own? As long as the article explains it as work from Lovecraft it can stay there. Jee, I've even seen articles about "Protoss", why these latter are fair game? --Kensai 11:47, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • I've made it a redirect, which I suggest we keep. Rory 11:54, Sep 18, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep, it has good information and it mentions the book is fictional. -- Old Right 15:55, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Uh, Old Right, you are referring to the page De Vermiis Mysteriis with two i's in Vermiis, which does indeed have good information and does mention that the book is fictional. De Vermis Mysterii with one i in Vermis was made into a redirect by Rory , as noted above. The original content of the article that is being discussed was:
Written in a prison in Prague by Ludwig Prinn in c1542, this terrible Tome has been known to contain knowledge that would drive men to madness. Banned by Pope Pius V, copies may still be found at the Starry Wisdom Church in Providence Rhode Island, at the Huntington Library in California, and at Miskatonic University.
which has bad information and does not mention that book is fictional. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 20:27, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep in current form as redirect to De Vermiis Mysteriis. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 20:27, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep in current form as redirect to De Vermiis Mysteriis. It would be encyclopedic to know the correct latin translation for The mysteries of the worm as well as the forms in which Lovecraft wrote them, and put them in the good little stub. AlainV 21:37, 19 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep but CORRECT both the syntax of the word AND the information needed to show that the book is FICTIONAL! --Kensai 21:02, 21 Sep 2004 (UTC)

This is not a fantasy related article, it's a horror related article. Is Wikipedia really so similistic as to see no difference between the genres? --Xinoph 16:14, May 2, 2005 (UTC)
