November Novella Challenge - COMPLETE

The November Novella Challenge is hosted by J.T. at Bibliofreak, the novella is, I feel, a marginalized type of fiction.  Longer than a short story, shorter than a novel, sometimes called a novelette, it’s tough to define.  In general, I consider it to be somewhere between 70 and 120 pages.  Perhaps it’s better to say what it is not?  It is not a play.  It is not epic poetry.  It is not a slim book of short stories.  It is not any sort of tract or treatise or manifesto or other such nonfiction.
But it IS perfect for a few things: curling up in front of a fire on a windy night, you can finish it off in one sitting.  And, alliteration?  Awesome.

So I will participate at
Level II: Read four novellas by November 30, 2009

So my list as of today.

1. D.A. by Connie Willis
2. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
3. Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case by Garth Nix
4. A War of Gifts by Orson Scott Card


  1. Sounds like a fun challenge! Good luck with it!

  2. Welcome to the Challenge! It sounds like you have an awesome list!

  3. I would love to join this - I have several novellas on my shelf - but with NaNoWriMo, I just won't have time. Ah well.
