For questions which are *explicitly* about the author of the work.
Well ... for questions which are explicitly about a particular author, we have the tag for that author. So the tag wiki excerpt definitely isn't what we want; however, do we want the tag itself to exist at all? (I know I could just go and edit it out of those 6 questions, but I figured we should discuss this, otherwise someone will just create it again at some point.)
Do we want an authors tag? If so, what sort of questions should we use it for?
On a side note (this is technically a separate request, but so closely related that I think it's justified to include it in the same meta post), we also have a writers tag. Just in case we decide that it is useful to have a tag for authors in general as well as individual author tags, can we please merge and synonymise writers with authors?
