I never thought of a novella as being a different price than a novel.
Like all books are 10ish $ at the book store.

Yeah they're only around 100 pages each but for 4 of them I could buy around 7 Malazan books. So it's around 400 pages versus like 7000 pages worth for the same price.

I mean Malazan is like trying to compare them to that student who writes a 50 page treatise for an assignment that was supposed to be 3 pages.

On the plus side, the Murderbot books are significantly longer than any of Chuck Tingle's stuff.
