Part of my first read of Nightfall and other Stories. 5.5 pages, 41 lines per page. 1999 words and 10923 characters. That makes an average of 5.5 characters per word, 363 words per page, 8.86 words per line. 6 'standard' pages (350 5.5-character words per page).
Only wrote and rated the compilation as a whole.
