Revision pass #1 complete. 91,000+ words, 32 chapters, one 91-word sentence, average word length 4 characters, average sentence length 15 words. About typical.

Next step; another pass, more slowly, concentrating on breaking up all sentences longer than 60 words. This will automatically shorten the book and I'll probably see other things on the way, like expository lumps and places with too much or too little grounding in the setting.

By then, I hope, I'll have a title I can stick in a query.
