Re: TNG: The Stuff of Dreams by James Swallow Review Thread (Spoilers!

I rather enjoyed this one.

One thing that struck me about The Stuff of Dreams is that the story fit into the novella size very well. When I had read The Struggle Within, it seemed to me that it was a full novel compressed down to novella length. (Note that I'm not trying to say that this is how it was actually created; it's just an impression that I had when reading it. It just seemed too short for the story it was trying to contain.) But TSoD just seemed to fit its size restrictions much better.

Not sure if I'm explaining this thought very well, but I'm tired, so I hope you get the idea.
