Part of my first read of Nightfall and other Stories. 13 pages, 41 lines per page. 4860 words and 26059 characters. That makes an average of 5.4 characters per word, 374 words per page, 9.12 words per line. 13.5 'standard' pages (350 5.5-character words per page).
Only wrote and rated the compilation as a whole.
