Well, what in tarnation is a novelette? According to Wikipedia, and from my dim memory of SF awards story length classification systems, it’s a long short story – or short novella – of between 7,500 and 17,500 words. And I’ve gone and written one, and called it “Landfall”, and I’m very pleased to say that it’s been accepted for publication in Paper Road Press’s first Shortcuts series: the fifth-named of six novellas/novelettes to be included in the series.
Paper Road Press is a relatively new publisher, but I’m impressed by the range of work they are producing – from novels to a range of shorter works. Writers and readers alike should keep an eye out for them!
