The article currently says "The author expanded this story into a novel of the same name published in 1973." This is not correct. The story was published under separate covers, but not expanded. It remained at roughly 21,500 words, which is shorter than most thresholds for "novel" status. See Chronological List of Texts from the Vance Integral Edition. See also the ISFDB listing for the story.

This makes me wonder why it got a huga award for best novelette, while it certainly is a novella with this amount (21,500) of words.Narayan (talk) 00:21, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
