'Swhat the book says. It may be worth recalling, though, that SF novels
of that period were a deal shorter than they tend to be today. (I recall,
when I first read Zelazny's _Lord of Light_ back around 1970, thinking
that it was quite long; I recently came across a copy, and found that it
was of no more than average length by today's standards.)
