David Schwartz on the difference in forms between the novel and the short story.
And on a purely selfish note, I returned from Germany last week to find a box of little baby VELLUMs waiting for me. I had thought the release date for the mass-market paperback was August but it turns out, nope, its only two days off now, 7th July. Apparently it's already been sighted in the shops. So any UK folks who couldn't afford the ouchy-expensive hardback can now pick up a paperback copy for the rather more pocket-friendly price of £7.99. And if you don't want to throw money at our Corporate Overlords, ye can always order it from a nice indie bookseller like The Aust Gate.
