“For our readers, time is the precious commodity they invest in every book they decide to purchase and read.

It’s just harder to make time for that thousand-page novel than it used to be, and there are more and more thousand-page novels to suffer from that temporal fragmentation.” Tor.com on why novellas are the form of the future.
