A New Unit of Measurement

I was happily showing my 24-year-old son, Cameron, the draft ms of By the Hands of Men, Book Four:  Ringside at the Circus of the Fallen.  

All 109,000 words and 367 pages.

He took a look at and, apparently unimpressed, observed: “Looks like you’ve got about a quarter of a Martin there.”

So, in case you’ve ever been looking for a way to quantitatively describe a book, there’s your unit of measurement.  A Martin.

That’s my boy.

  1. Is a Martin greater than, less than or equal to a Michener? Or is it like a comparison between the Metric and Imperial units of measuring? Asking for a friend. – Chaz
