The Novella


A 50,000-word novella exists, to be illustrated in black-and-white. The setting is imaginary but without magic. The story is a poetic black comedy for adults. Interested publishers should email in the first instance, with a short assertion of their qualification to publish such a work, bearing in mind that the chances of being found acceptable are tiny.
