Friday Flashback: The Long and the Short

This week we’re collecting Brobdingnagian stories with relatively Lilliputian chapters. You might assume that most novella-length stories (20,000 words or more) are that way because they’re made up of individual chapters with lots of verbiage themselves (and a lot of them are, don’t get me wrong), so this week I decided to look for epic tales where that wasn’t the case—lots of shortish parts, instead of a smaller number of long ones. All of the below are 20,000-word-plus stories with a high chapter count and an average chapter length under 3,000 words. 

Hope you find something you enjoy, and if not there’s more to choose from in the back. The next site update is tomorrow, 22 October. In the meantime, have fun exploring the archives, and thanks for visiting the site.
