The Art of the Novella
Mango Rains is a novella.
What’s a novella? Simply put, a novella is a short novel, usually with fewer subplots.
Some examples of novellas:
- Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
- Daisy Miller by Henry James
- Death in Venice by Thomas Mann
Galaxy Galloper Press, the publisher of Mango Rains, is dedicated to reviving the novella as a literary form. From the publisher’s website: “The novella is a neglected, stunning art form. In a market saturated with short stories and novels where odd lengths are considered “unpublishable,” it is our mission to see a revitalization of this genre and give a voice to works that fall in the range of 15,000 to 50,000 words.”
