Subject: RARA-AVIS: Short books
There are short books getting published and praised and even translated. On
James Sallis: Drive, 22 482 words
Scott Phillips: The Ice Harvest, 37 291 words
Duane Swierczynski: The Wheelman, 42 811 words
The word counts are for the Finnish translations, which means usually that
the original works are somewhat shorter.
