length of stories
Hello.
Some time ago, I was reading Mr. Vance's remarks about the difference between a novelette and a novella.
He used his own term that combined these two words.
Because I have not found his comments, perhaps you can help me.
If not,do you know how I can contact Mr. Vance myself?

Thank you very much.
