Ursula K. Le Guin has (apparently) recently come up with a useful term for books like _5HC_ and, another particularly useful example, Kim Stanley Robinson's _Icehenge_ -- i.e., books that are more than story collections or "fixups," but not exactly novels -- in an online inteview with somebody or other named Nick Gevers, she refers to such book as "story suites," which I htink is quite apt, but then when is UKLG other than apt? Anyway, just want to do my bit to help popularize this useful term. --Blattid --
