comment Critique of short essay
I disagree; "alone in the dark" evokes loneliness and sadness in those of us not steeped in computer games. In the Ray Charles biopic Ray, Jamie Foxx is complaining to another character about his blindness: "When I walk out that door, I walk out alone the dark." He was referring to his entire life. en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Ray_%28film%29

comment Is it possible to establish a relation between word count and page count?
The term you needed was character count, as Psicofrenia noted. I edited your post.

comment Omitting “that” in fiction writing
Yep, this is purely a decision to be made on a case-by-case, sentence-by-sentence basis. You can't weave a blanket rule on this one.

comment Can Readers Relate to a Book without Humans?
@Mussri All the series I've mentioned above are really good. You can hardly go wrong with anything she writes. I thought Downbelow Station and the Alliance Universe books were quite depressing and I wouldn't recommend them, but chacun à son goût.

comment Can Readers Relate to a Book without Humans?
@Mussri If I had to pick one series, I would definitely say Foreigner. Be warned that the first book is very hard to get through, reflecting the state of mind of the protagonist, but the remainder flow much smoothly. Stick with it; it's exceptionally rewarding. Bren is a hero for his intellect and his skills at diplomacy, which is damn refreshing.

Don't forget "The gentleman with the thistle-down hair" from Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell.

comment Could you please suggest a very dense book?
Hi Nate, welcome to Writers SE. This is not on-topic for us, as it's not about writing or editing. (That said, Gabriel Garcia-Marquez's Autumn of the Patriarch ought to do you nicely. I counted six sentences stretched over 40 pages before I threw it across the room.)

comment Short story becomes too intense to pack into a few pages
1) What's the "issue" you're having with brevity? Why is it a problem? 2) Okay, you have a novella. Why is that a problem?
