Definition of "Novel"Edit
For the purpose of this category and in line with the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, a piece of narrative fiction is generally only considered a "novel" if it has more than 40,000 words. Novels are typically standalone publications, although they may be serialized.
By contrast, BattleCorps summarily refers to fiction pieces below 40,000 words as "short fiction", and therefore they are all summarily categorized under Category:Short Stories here on the Sarna BattleTechWiki. (A story is generally held to be a "short story" if it has up to ca. 7,500 words, a "novelette" up to ca. 17,500 words, and a "novella" between ca. 17,500 and 40,000 words by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America; see also: Word count.)
Some BattleTech fiction may arbitrarily be categorized as both a short story and a novel at the same time.
