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.
I know exactly what you mean, and I felt the same way. At no point did I think to myself that it was too short or that I wanted more than what was presented. The story fit the format perfectly.
