(Last week I posted to a link on an article about rejected SF and Fantasy novels, and one of our regulars noted that Dune had been rejected for length at one point – and then noted how some series and books seem to be overlong. That got me thinking and this column is the result).
What is the ideal length of a book? A series? A TV episode? A movie? A movie series?
You have an idea in mind. Publishers, TV executives, authors, and everyone has an idea in mind. I daresay you could, with little prompting start quite a conversation – or argument – about the ideal length/duration of any form of media. We all have ideas about such things, some held quite passionately.
