The following books, magazines, and poems are currently Red Links, as they don't seem to have a TV Tropes works page yet.

They are worthy of a page here in at least one troper's opinion; but that troper may not be familiar enough with the work in question, or may not be a good writer, or, in some cases, knows the work is notable, hates it, but doesn't want to engage in Complaining About Shows You Don't Watch or Complaining About Shows You Don't Like, or worse, it's out of print and there's virtually no information about it at all.

For the moment, we'll sign our items on this list, and add our names onto works to which we feel should have a page here; please see the discussion page.

If you create a page for one of these, or it turns into a bluelink after another troper creates it, please remove it from this list, unless it's a disambiguation (which will show with a green link) or a redirect. If it is a redirect or disambiguation, point that out.

Also take note, try to include a work in its media of initial incarnation. For example, instead of placing the Novelization in the literature category place the work under the Film section. The notable exception to this rule is either when a work's derivative incarnation is more widely known than the original (in which case please leave a note mentioning such), or when a page exists for the original version but not the adaptation (in which case a note should also be made so that the creator can either add a section to the pre-existing page or decide to create a new one).

For unreleased works, there's a separate list maintained at Unreleased Works. Anything unreleased that's not already on that list should be added there first. That doesn't mean it can't be listed here as well - but if tropers are tracking it via the Future Works page and it's still a Red Link, we might not have enough tropable information to create a page yet. See Creating A Work Page For An Unreleased Work for more guidance on that topic.

For works that do have a page but have little-to-no tropes listed, see Works Needing Tropes.
