Shakespeare, Rex Stout and the Novella
Here's another one from the shameless self-promotion file. I recently published a mystery novella called Murder at Terra Vista Station. Even more recently I wrote a brief piece for Omnimystery News, in which I discuss my reasons for writing a novella, rather than a novel or a long short story.
My reasons for doing so have a lot to do with the inspiration provided by one of my favorite authors, Rex Stout, who actually published more Nero Wolfe novellas than novels. You can read the piece here, if you're so inclined.
