    I don't think it's so much computers as *movies* shortening novels. An agent I dealt with a few years ago told me he was waiting for a publisher to see the screenplay before the manuscript!

    Talking about short novels, there were always short and long ones. The 200-250 pages of today have only commercial reasons and people doing marketing research. Brautigan's novels were 100 pages long and less, Unamuno wrote 40 pages novels, etc... etc... By the way the word novel can also be what is called today a short story, nouvelle or novela just means something new, or a new story, length has nothing to do with it.
