Re: Novels Vs Novellettes
Just for information, the Science Fiction Writers of America define a novella as a work of fiction between 17,500 and 40,000 words in length. A novelette checks in between 7,500 and 17,500 words.
Talking about recent authors, Charles Stross has published at least two novelettes. But it's always the same song: published (and successful) authors have a market.
