Charles Dicken's novels, most published in monthly or weekly instalments, pioneered the serial publication of narrative fiction, which became the dominant Victorian mode for novel publication. The installment format allowed Dickens to evaluate his audience's reaction, and he often modified his plot and character development based on such feedback
We've all seen them scattered among the flash fiction, these "little" segments of "enormous" stories trying to pass for small. I admit I've tried to do it myself with a story I really, really want read but no one here will read 7000 pages. It took a lot of work to change the serial format which to me is more readable and accessible.
Anything longer than 1500 words a section is verboten and has plenty of place on groups for longer stories and novel excerpts. Not here. Not among these flash fiction pieces linked together by a theme, but which can also stand alone.
Just as flash and microfiction are tiny stories that tell a life and are self-contained, so are the "sections" of the flashes in these linked serial stories. They are linked, but they each carry within them the whole of a story. This is not, in contrast, a "chapter book." It fits the Fictionaut model perfectly.
