I’m blogging about novellas today at Contact – Infinite Futures.
What is a novella? Science Fiction writer, Robert Silverberg, described it thus:
“One of the richest and most rewarding of literary forms…it allows for more extended development of theme and character than does the short story, without making the elaborate structural demands of the full-length book. Thus it provides an intense, detailed exploration of its subject, providing to some degree both the concentrated focus of the short story and the broad scope of the novel.”
Stephen King described it as: “an ill-defined and disreputable literary banana republic.”
