Every time I add anything to the author site, hear about it you will!</p> felicity Re: "Constuctive" Criticisms 2008-05-06T12:01:09+00:00 2008-05-06T12:01:09+00:00 <p>But see, I am more interested in discussing the work with others who know more of your oeuvre. (Even Fayrie&#8217;s microfictions count!) I think you should at least add a forum to your author site.</p> EMeta Re: "Constuctive" Criticisms 2008-05-05T16:54:15+00:00 2008-05-05T16:54:15+00:00 <p>Enh&#8230;I don&#8217;t know. It&#8217;s my intention to keep and my Official Doings fairly separate (hence the link to the other site rather than full details here). So I wasn&#8217;t really planning on having a thread for discussion of the story anywhere&#8212;this was more of a celebratory FYI.<br /> <br /> I don&#8217;t know <em>why</em> precisely I want to keep things separated, but I know I very strongly do. Of course you are quite welcome to e-mail me any comments, and the magazine has a web forum for readers should you want to canvass others who&#8217;ve read the ish. Maybe I should examine my reasoning about keeping things separate&#8230;I&#8217;m not sure.</p> felicity Re: Would you like Inhibichips with that? 2008-05-05T11:33:02+00:00 2008-05-05T11:33:02+00:00 <p>Indeed, word count is the determining factor. I&#8217;ve never heard the term &#8216;novelette&#8217; used outside speculative fiction, so the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America are a great authority: <a href="">answers from their FAQ</a>.<br /> <br /> Thanks for the kind words!</p> felicity "Constuctive" Criticisms 2008-05-05T11:21:51+00:00 2008-05-05T11:21:51+00:00 <p>Is this the thread in which we get to talk about &#8220;Burgerdroid,&#8221; or are you going to start another that gives spoiler alerts their due?</p> EMeta Would you like Inhibichips with that? 2008-05-05T07:39:36+00:00 2008-05-05T07:39:36+00:00 <p>Great story! :) Couldn&#8217;t help thinking about Alex J. Murphy&#8217;s reassuring words &#8211; &#8220;they fix everything.&#8221;<br /> <br /> So tell me, what&#8217;s the difference between a short story, a novelette, and a novella? Word count?</p> GreyStork
