comment Is it permissible to write a short story with little or no dialogue?
Absolutely not common, but possible. Ursula K. LeGuin's much-anthologized "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" has essentially no dialogue.

comment Is it possible to establish a relation between word count and page count?
A manuscript page in "standard manuscript format" (12 point courier, 1 inch margins, double spacing) will have about 250 words. Perhaps that's where the common "250 words per page" comes from. It's rare for a printed book to have so few words per page.

comment Could you please suggest a very dense book?
Of the two that I read, the John E. Woods translation is by far my favorite. I forget who translated the other one I read.
