I am Czech, so I write mostly in Czech, not in English. However, I have two blogs in English - one programming-relating (in progress, soon to be released into the wild), the other one just about anything: games, books, opinions...

I think it depends on the publisher. Try to check if Amazon has specific limits for short stories.

comment Do You Use Any Version Controlling Software/Methods As Writers?
MS Word does support versioning, but it has kinda clunky UI and all versions are saved right into the single .doc file - so your short story can have the size of megabytes.

I read it long time ago, but weren't illustrations in Jurrasic Park in fact graphical representations of chaos-theory mathematical model?

comment How do evil protagonists win the reader over in dark fantasy stories?
+1 for the mention of G.R.R. Martin. Lannister twins are the best evil (or rather "evil") characters ever.
