novel – Class for printing fiction, such as novels

This Lua document class is specifically written to meet the needs of original fiction writers, who are typesetting their own novels for non-color print-on-demand technology. Built-in PDF/X is available, using new technology.

The package is well suited for detective novels, science fiction, and short stories. It is however not recommended for creating color picture books or dissertations.

According to a communication by its original author in November 2022: “Due to changes in and various support packages, parts of novel no longer work properly.” This orphaned package is therefore in want of a new maintainer.
