Panverse is looking for venture capital (article at BoingBoing) to publish SF and fantasy novellas.
It's no secret that I like this length. It's a bit longer than a short story but not requiring the commitment that a mammoth novel demands of readers. In short, novellas pack a punch.
Something that can be read in a lunch hour seems a natural product development for the genre market. It's readers know what they want. Now they also want to be able to snack on it. The full course meal (the novel) is for weekends and holidays -- not sure this is true, but couldn't resist the meal analogy :)
