Following on from our earlier discussions over the growth of the novella, we thought we’d explore the growth of online magazines, and the kinds of novellas being published recently. (Novella is a story between 17,500 and 40,000 words [Hugo Award definition]).
Accordingly, we invite you to read a couple of novellas from one or more recent issues (2018) of one or two of these online magazines, make notes on anything interesting, and be ready to discuss the state of the novella in SF today.
