Are there any good standalone novellas/short stories in the Expanse universe?

I finished watching the 5 seasons of The Expanse and want to explore the universe more. Are there any Expanse books or stories that I can enjoy without needing to read the main novel series beforehand?

Does The Churn fit the bill? Amos and Erich are both intriguing characters that I'd love to know more about.

The opening title treatment in The Thing (1982), light shining through the background to β€œburn away” and reveal the letters making up the title, is a direct homage to the title treatment of The Thing from Another World (1951). Both movies were adapted from the same novella, β€œWho Goes There?”

I'm writing a novella and a game set in Middle Earth. They are called The Isle of Elanor.

I'm not trying to advertise. Simply trying to gauge the possibility of the concept.

Yes, obviously I won't be using content (characters, locations, anything) from Tolkien. But I still believe that there is fictional room inside the concept of Middle Earth without engaging directly with Tolkien's work. For example, many games use the peoples of Middle Earth (Elves, Dwarves, Men, Orcs, etc.).

I started writing the Novella last year, and then I started on the video game. I'm not a professional game developer.

What do you think?

Is there a market for novellas anymore?

I'm currently writing my first ever novella and I'm currently around the 12k words mark and hoping to have somewhere between 15k - 20k words when finished.

I'm just wondering is there even a market these days for novellas?

Or will I have to bundle it in with some short stories I have written so that the finished product will look more "like a book"? Like what James Joyce did with Dubliners.

I Really Like The Mothwing's Secret/Spotfur's Rebellion Style Of Novella

With the release of A Warrior's Choice, Spotfur's Rebellion seems to be the least liked novella in the collection. I disagree, it was my favorite novella in the collection (mostly because I didn't like the others that much).

Spotfur's Rebellion was done in a similar style to a previous novella: Mothwing's Secret from A Warrior's Spirit. In this style of novella, rather than tell a new story, the novella looks at an existing story from a different character's perspective. For instance, Mothwing's Secret was a collection of chapters following Mothwing all the way from TNP to OOTS, while Spotfur's Rebellion follows Spotfur through TBC#1-3.

This is awesome because it allows you to see RiverClan's perspective during TNP and why Spotfur chose to attack Bramblefake for instance.

This also helps solve a problem Warriors has had more recently where there are so many characters in the Clans that most of them have almost no personality. These novellas allows them to have a chance to have a full 10 chapters of perspective.

What do you think?

They dislike Lion but also hate Caliban and Luther, they are fiercely loyal to the Emperor, they have around 50k Astartes and some really high tech weapons, such as star fortresses and it has been implied that they have the power to change the outcome of the Heresy. !<After the novella, I don't remember reading anything about them.

Here is a full outline to my novella. I’d love to get your honest opinion. I am still working on scene list and outline. What do you think guys ?

Gregory and chalice have been friends for almost two years. Gregory tells us how their friendship slowly started dying. The first scene is them sitting at a bar, having drinks when chalice reveals to Gregory that to her their friendship has been more than just a friendship and that she’s had feelings for him. She tells him that at first she thought he was kind of dorky looking but overtime she realized that she’s had feelings for him. She’s kind of tipsy and Gregory starts fidgeting and tells her he needs to go to the bathroom and he leaves. He is really uncomfortable. He also really loves her and cares about her so he calls her on the phone and tells her that after the death of his mom a year before she’s been his only family and that sex complicates things and that he wants her in his life but not this way. She goes silent and he can hear her sobbing and she tells him ok and hangs up.

A week later, Gregory hasn’t heard from Chalice and he calls her phone and no one picks up. He goes to the airbnb that she’s been renting for three months now and the owner says she hasn’t returned in three days and she doesn’t even have her stuff with her. He receives a phone-call where a man dressed in white appears in a taxi and takes him to chalice’s house. On the way to the house the man talks to him about how last week he got his first cd player. Confused, Gregory ignores the driver and stops at the house which belonged to chalice’s father who died of cancer and ownership of the house moved to chalice. She never lived in it because she said it reminded her of her shitty childhood and since then it has been abandoned. He walks into the house looking for her and inside he finds an older lady making tea in the kitchen. She tells him that it really doesn’t matter who she is but all she is asking him to do is to save chalice. He doesn’t know what she is talking about and she takes him to a room upstairs where she shows him a door and she asks him to walk through this door then says, β€œYou really broke her heart. But someone else will break her body. β€œ

Feeling guilty and deciding that now his main goal is to retrieve her. He also realizes that if he loses chalice he will be losing the only real family/ friend he has. He walks into the dark tunnel. Half way down the tunnel he meets a tall brooding centaur dressed in a leather ja

Science Fiction Novellas by Asian Authors?

So we're doing some reading challenges on a reading discord server I'm in and we have an optional hard mode (like on this sub!) to have all three of our books be compatible with two prompts instead of one. The three prompts are one of the buddy reads that we're doing on the discord server (I'm doing Kindred), a science fiction book, and a book by an Asian author. Since I've already got Kindred and To Be Taught, if Fortunate, I figure I should match prompt 3 to a science fiction author. The only problem is, I don't have time for a full sci-fi novel right now, so I'd like a sci-fi novella by an Asian author, but I'm not able to find almost any?

The only one I've found is The Lifecycle of Software Objects by Ted Chiang which looks cool, but I'd like to have a few more options since I'm not sure if that's my thing. It's also weird to me that there seems to be a lack of Asian authors in this space, since there's a lot of Asian fantasy novellas. Anyway, if you guys have some recs, I would deeply appreciate it! :)

Doing research for a novella, how would paramedics handle this scene (Overdose)

Hi guys, first off, thanks for the work you do.

I write a lot of fiction and I've used this sub before for stuff like this and you guys are always so helpful.

So, if someone overdosed on valium (Possibly valium and Xanax, I'm not sure yet) and they were unconscious on the couch, what would EMS do when they arrived to help?

The character survives. But she was trying to kill herself. She wasn't just taking this stuff to get high. Her boyfriend was the one who found her in that state and called 9-11. But I also have this idea for when she is about to be loaded into the ambulance, he is next to her holding her hand and talking to her. I really want her to at least open her eyes and at least look at him, if not say a few slurred words. But would that even be possible at that moment?

Also, what might happen when she is taken to the hospital? I can't specify the number of pills she took because I"m not sure. But she took enough to knock her out and enough to need medical attention. I don't know a lot about the effects of Benzos or how much it takes to do that, etc.

Anyway, any info would be really helpful. If you want more info/background just ask. Thanks in advance. :)

Disturbing/mysterious/horrific hard SF novels/novellas?

I need something chunky to tear into and I keep finding that the SF horror genre, probably one of my favorite watering holes, is woefully underpopulated by stories that actually care about the science as much as the scares. To me, plausibility adds so much more appeal to SF that deals heavily in elements of mystery, awe, and horror. Something about horror for horror’s sake when the science isn’t there to back it up feels forced and artificial.

To get it out of the way, here are all the books I’ve already read that fit within the sort of category I’m looking for:

-Blindsight (duh)

-Revelation Space series

-Pushing Ice

-Last Astronaut

-Three Body Problem (a good book but based off what I’ve heard I don’t have much motivation to finish the series)

-The Sparrow

-Rendezvous with Rama

-Ship of Fools (the reason for this one’s popularity eluded me)

-Nightflyers

-The Expanse series (this one’s pretty borderline but a few of the books count)

Legacy of Heorot has been on my radar as has Frozen Hell and Out of the Dark, but mostly I’m just looking for something that will both creep me out and make me think at the same time, as opposed to the novel I’m currently reading, Chindi, which I am thus far finding a little too soft for my liking. Who knows though, it might yet surprise me.

Novellas and short story collections are also welcome!

Anyone have a hard time justifying the price of novellas?

I really want to pickup Murderbot but looking at the price of $12 for a 100-170 page book is crazy to me.

It seems like that’s pretty standard with popular novellas.

I know it works well for the author, and I’m all about supporting authors. But $1 for every 10 pages or so seems whack.

Does anyone else feel this way?

Edit: I should specify I mean Kindle books or ebooks. I understand physical pricing, that makes sense to me.

Cats I want to have a novella
  • Sleekwhisker: I really want to see her perspective and it would answer some unanswered questions. Why was she so rebellious? Did something happen to her when she was a kit? Did she have a crush on Darktail? Was she at least a bit sad about Needletail's death? I believe that Sleekwhisker has a lot to give!

  • Smoke: I'd love to see her relationship with Onewhisker, how she met him, him rejecting her, and her training Darktail to be a great warrior. Did she drown (that would explain why Darktail is so obsessed with drowning cats)? What was her emotional arc? Her story has much potential.

  • Breezepelt: While his story was really touched on, we don't really see much of his perspective. I really want to see him more in the Dark Forest, him being bitter about Crowfeather, him being an outcast, his rivalry with Lionblaze and relationship with Heathertail. We don't really get to know much about his relationship with Heathertail so it'd be something new.

  • Silverstream: People hate her for being a princess, but actually she's not when she was alive. I like her personality and I'd be happy to see a novella from her perspective. We don't really see much of her story but from what we got, she has potential. Silverstream's relationship with Greystripe, her relationship with Crookedstar (he actually rejected her in the first few months of her life), her friendship with Mistyfoot and we get to see more of Leopardfur(star)!

  • Ashfur: I'd like to see him going more and more insane, eventually leading to the fire scene and his death. It'd be cool if we saw him plotting in StarClan, him striking a deal with the Dark Forest cats and finding out where he got his powers from.

  • Rock: Pretty self-explanitory. What we know about his story is interesting and there's so many things to fill in. What was his life (alive) like? More about the Ancients. Why did he get cursed? Fallen Leaves drama?

[novella excerpt: Hunter's snare by Josh Reynolds]The White Scars' Successor Chapters regularly hold tournaments to decide who gets to sit on the White Scars' knee and learn how to be a proper son of Jaghatai

Context: Thursk of the Dark Hunters is stuck bodyguarding Kor'sarro Khan of the White Scars, and having difficulty fitting in.

>Thursk had never particularly enjoyed the quiet, but the White Scars seemed to revel in noise, be it singing, talking, or merely the cry of the wind or the growl of engines; just one more difference between the Founding Chapter and their Successor. But there were similarities as well. The Chogorian way of life wasn’t wholly alien to a Phobian. And it was those connections which the White Scars insisted on exploring, in order to ensure that their Successors kept to the proper way of things. β€˜That is why I’m here, after all. It’s the Dark Hunters turn to kneel at the trophy-rack, and swear fealty to the Khan-of-Khans,’ he said. Once every cycle, the White Scars Successor Chapters met, and pitted their chosen champions against each other in the Rite of Blooding. The winner was sent to join the White Scars for a full cycle, to learn all that the Founders had to teach them.
>
>β€˜It’s not about fealty, cousin,’ Ambaghai said. β€˜It is about tradition. The traditions of Chogoris, of the steppes and wild, thunder-struck hills, of the plains wind and wild-fire that are in your blood, whether you are Chogorian or Phobian, whether you are a brother of the Storm Lords, the Marauders, or the Solar Hawks. We are all sons of Jaghatai, and it was his decree that all those who share his blood know the traditions of the world which bore him in fire, blood and glory.’ Ambaghai tapped the head of his staff against the Imperial aquila on Thursk’s chestplate. β€˜We are many tribes, gathered beneath a single horse-tail banner, and we all ride the White Road together, guided by his wisdom, so that our blades may shed blood as one.’
>
>[...]
>
>Kor’sarro led the way into the alien bastion, as was his right as Master of the Hunt. Ambaghai followed, in his shadow as ever, and off to the side, the Dark Hunter. He did not know what to make of the Phobian yet. He did not ride, nor did he seem to understand their way of war. He might as well have been a scion of Russ or Dorn, for all the kinship Kor’sarro felt with him. He reflected, not for the first time, on the Great Khan’s insistence that they welcome these strangers in all but blood into their tents and war councils. He understood the reasoning for it, but that didn’t make it any easier to take.

Recs for a charmer, not-so-alpha hero novella/novelette??

Hi all!

I always lurk here and find so many helpful recs (thanks!), but I have a book itch I just can’t scratch and need help with suggestions, if you can! I’m looking for a romance with a charmer hero that’s either high fantasy or historical (in this case, β€œfantasy” being more sword and sorcery, less shifters). Ideally, he’s more the type to talk his way out of things than punch his way out, is funny and maybe morally grey. A pirate, maybe? I usually prefer high heat (doesn't have to be too steamy, but definitely sexy times at some point). Possible catch - I’m looking for novellas and novelettes. I’m a new mom and I need books I can read relatively quickly right now or I’ll never finish them! No epic slow burns right now, lol.

Thanks in advance for the help! Hope you’re all enjoying whatever you’re reading. :)

Santa Maria Novella: impressions

I went to a SMN store today and smelt a bunch of fragrance on paper and would like to share some thoughts because this brand isn't talk about enough and it's one of the few houses that still sell historical fragrance. Although not all recipes were from the Renaissance, the perfumes from this house reflect the history of medicine (plants and herbs), and personally I feel the scents have therapeutic effects. Maybe it's due to the history but after the visit I don't see myself trying out any other brands in the near future.

Disclaimer: I'm not a diehard perfume enthusiast and I don't have the scents with me so these are just impressions. May do detailed review later if people are interested.

Acqua di Colonia: this is their oldest scent created for Catherine de Medici. this is the only scent I tried that felt dated. The scent reminds me more of the restrooms in high end department stores in Manhattan. It comes on very strong and explosive, a bit overwhelming. Next time I'm around I'm willing to try it again and see whether my shock from the opening notes is clouding my judgement because I really want to love this for its history and association with an extraordinary woman. Right now all I can say it's dated, but expensive and classy, not for someone who don't have the air of a noble woman/queen.That said, I can definitely see this scent on a man too.

Acqua di Colonia Cinquanta: white flowers that are not clogging/suffocating. A bit acquatic and green, very natural smelling, feminine, light and wearable all year round. Simple and straightforward; elegant and classy but still youthful and lively.

Angels of Florence: similar to Cinquanta due to white flowers, but is very fruity. Sweet, youthful, feminine, very wearable. I prefer Cinquanta over this for the green notes.

Eva: comes on loud and strong with some bitterness, not the kind of light refreshing citrus in most perfume. The dry down is beautiful (I had this in my hand while trying other scents, after about 5 mins I smelt it again and it's completely different and I fell in love), vetiver and woody with A hint of the sweetness and spiciness of pepper that keeps you on your feet. Unisex and timeless, a little reminiscent of barbership. Impression I get is someone with confidence and presence, a little rebellious and unconventional. I asked the woman working there to spray it on my wrists and can't stop smelling it. Will probably go back and get a bottle.

Fresia: very natural sweet floral wi

I wish more authors would write β€œunnecessary” novellas for their series

What got me thinking about this was A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas. Sarah J’s stuff really isn’t for me and I haven’t read ACOFAS, but I really like the idea of it and wish something like it existed for some of my favorite series.

For those that don’t know, it’s a Christmas themed novella that takes place soon after the trilogy. It’s fluffy, relationship driven, and not connected to the main plot really at all.

I feel like this would be a great way for authors to build out their world a little more, spending time with characters in low-stakes times, building familial/platonic/romantic relationships, etc. I’d be willing to bet many authors already have a lot of content like this that got cut during the editing process, and would appeal to big fans of the series.

For example, I’d read 150 pages of Kaladin and Adolin dicking around on Urithiru between Oathbringer and Rhythm of War, and I think many others would as well. (I’m aware Brandon does novellas, but not the type I’m referencing.)

I guess it would be comparable to official fanfiction, but I honestly think that would be cool. I think it would help build attachment to characters you already like in situations that just don’t fit in an actual novel with plot and everything. Give me official fluff!

I’m no expert on the publication industry so I have no idea the feasibility behind this, but I think that already super popular authors could pull it off. Could also give them a break from plotting massive novels and stuff, to just have a bit of fun.

Anyway, would you like to see this?

UPDATE: THE LAST SIN EATER NOVELLA IS NOW LIVE! Life Extension finale & NEW Last Sin Eater story over the next TWO DAYS.

Hi folks,

This is a super important entry, but after numerous headaches and relaying with Amazon, The Last Sin Eater is now available to purchase in Paperback, digital copies will be available within 48 hours and all preorders that were cancelled have been emailed by Amazon with an apology and encouragement to re-buy.

Suffice to say, it's been a headache!

BUT thankfully I have now ordered all signed copies and will provide an update when they're here/when they've been sent out. I was blessed to sell all 200 copies and I cannot thank you all enough for that.

NOTE: I have the links for BOTH Hardback & Digital, but they may not be 100% live until Monday.

BOTH ARE NOW LIVE!

LINKS:

UK | US | CA | AU | FR | DE | JP | ES | IT | NL | BR | MX | IND

The more people that can purchase either copy, the better it will be for the rankings of the novella as I have to start from scratch thanks to Amazons issue, so if you CAN spare it and had preordered a regular digital copy, please do consider doing so and leaving a review if you enjoy it!

I may post Life Extension/Sin Eater promotional story the other way around, but both are done and ready and i'm SO excited to share them with you before moving onto the next batch of stories as we lead up to NFC Season 2 in August.

This has been the hardest couple of weeks in a long time and while i'll detail some of that in a little vlog later, I wanted you to have the info handy now and easily.

Potential Indian Speculative Fiction Community for reading short stories/novellas and watching movies? [Discord]

Note: The discord server is not affiliated to r/Indianbooks in any way. I am not a mod, or otherwise involved in this community as of now.

Hey. I've been toying with the idea of a community that focuses on Indian/South Asian/Non-western spec fic. We could give it a try and see how it does? I am a literature student who works on speculative fiction, if that helps.

This is a rough sketch of how I thought it would work

Short stories:

  • ONE 10-30 min read a week.
  • Discussion over weekends, either in channel or through voice/video, depending on interest.
  • We can also alternate between Western and non-Western for a wider experience.
  • I'll try to curate stories that are available online or find a way of getting it to you.

Movies: we stream movies once a month or maybe once every two months depending on interest.

Although there are good established venues for CPing, of there's enough interest we could also have a writing feedback channel.

I define speculative fiction broadly. It could include SFF, horror, mythology-based fiction, alternate history etc. I'm not particularly concerned with medium as long as there's something speculative in it. We can discuss David Bowie's music or paleoart or whatever, as long as what we're discussing is not rooted in our reality.

There seems to be some interest, so here is the link to the server: https://discord.gg/uY8KcSf47C

Please let me know if you have issues joining.

I have some work now, but I'll be back later in the evening to reply and discuss relevant details. Feel free to invite friends etc if you think they'd be interested.

John Steinbeck's "The Pearl", a relatively short novella, packs quite a wallop, embodying so much of what I like about his writing.

Though this may be in one sense a "water is wet" declaration, I started it late last night and finished it this morning. I'm by no means a stranger to Steinbeck. Not only did I like so many read Of Mice and Men in high school, but East of Eden is my favorite book of all time, so much so that I've been hesitant to visit any of his other work, fearing that the book outshined the rest of his bibliography. The Pearl does many things, but a big one was showing me how foolish that declaration was.

It embodies everything I love about Steinbeck: his sense of empathy and comprehension of the human condition, his ability to show the cunning and evil side of human nature, and the simplistic yet poetically masterful way he paints a picture with words.

There's obviously a lot to take away from it, primarily how financial gain corrupts even the most tender individuals. Just the mere fact that >!Coyotito, the innocent babe who's the catalyst for the desire for the Pearl in the first place, pays for the pearl's corruption!< says so much.

Steinbeck is a genius. Class dismissed.

Short stories or a Novella?

So, I write fiction. I've been an amateur writer all my life (I'm 20F), but it's only recently that I've began writing fiction properly and regularly with more focus. A lot of stuff that I've written has been well received by a few friends who have read them and a small group of writers in online writers' forum as well. Basically, I think I can write compelling stories. And that has led me to start thinking about publishing.

I've had started out with writing short stories, and I had thought that I'd publish a collection of short stories, first. But then as I kept on at the craft, I've realised that most of the plot ideas and characters that I come up with are best suited for novels/novella (basically something more than a short story premise)

I haven't ever written a full length novel/novella before, only short stories. But I love my ideas and would love to expand on them. Should I ditch my short story writing and instead shift on to writing my first novella instead that I would submit for publishing?

Help. What will increase my chances of getting published (I stress on the publishing factor most, because even though I write simply for the joy of it, having a published work on my resume would drastically increase my chances of launching into a literary career that I'm striving towards right now)

Thank You. Any insight would be helpful.

(Spoilers Extended) How much will the Dunk and Egg novellas encompass?

Assuming all of them ever get made, do you think the series will only reach up to the Third Blackfyre Rebellion or do you think it will tackle way more and beyond like Egg's reign as king and even Summerhall?
