    Not novel length. Definitely a novella.

    Looks to be around the length of The Colorado Kid, which is officially a novel.

    Also depends of the type size and page formatting ;-)

    Colorado Kid was 35,000 words. Gwendy's Button Box is about 2/3 as long.

    For the Bram Stoker or SFWA Nebula Awards, to be considered a novel it has to be longer than 40,000 words. The Edgars are more embracing: they call anything over 22,000 words a novel.

    I hope they add cookie jar to the audio like they did with Dune and Blockade Billy.
    Hopefully there's a release date for that soon.

    I don't have a page count -- I didn't see a finished book, just the manuscript. And RF is close, within a few percent one way or the other. There may have been some changes after I read it.

    Did I miss something, or there is no actual answer about whether or not the story is related/ would be adapted in the CASTLE ROCK mini-series?

    BV: does “Gwendy” tie in to the newly announced Castle Rock series on Hulu?
    SK: I went back to Castle Rock with this one before JJ [Abrams] sold the series to Hulu, so that didn’t play a part.

    His segment is near the end. Also, if you follow Rich on Twitter and retweet the relevant tweet, you might win an ARC of Gwendy next week.
