When A Short History of a Small Place was being submitted to publishers thirty-odd years ago, one editor turned it down with the comment "Too many words." Just last week, an editor passed on the latest (and probably last) Ray Tatum book with "Too much dialogue."

Lykos snarled as he took a man’s arm off at the shoulder.  They kept shooting him with silver bullets.  The amount of waste was starting to become annoying.  He used the arm to strike the last one across the face, sending the man flying back over the balcony.

“Wow.”  He looked over to see Laura. ...
