 Contact (novel) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some of Sagan's character traits are evident in the main character, Ellie Arroway, and the novel serves as an entertaining platform in which he encapsulates ideas surrounding many of his life's interests, especially the first contact with extraterrestrials.
Contact is a science fiction novel written by Carl Sagan and published in 1985.
Sagan's only novel allows the reader to plausibly experience, in the imagination, what he longed to experience in real life: the discovery of extra-terrestrial intelligence.

 NOVEL - LoveToKnow Article on NOVEL
But the novel adapts itself to so large a range of readers, and covers so vast a ground in the imitation of life, that it is the unique branch of literature which may be cultivated without any real distinction or skill, and yet for the moment may exercise a powerful purpose.
The novel called The Twice-Flowering Plum-Trees, belonging to the 16th (or I7th) century, is a typical example of the moral Chinese novel, written with a virtuous purpose.
It was not, however, until about 1830 that the novel began to be one of the main channels of imaginative writing in France, and the development of this kind of fiction was one of the main features of the romantic revival.

 EUROPA - Food Safety - Novel Foods - Introduction
Novel foods or novel food ingredients may follow a simplified procedure, only requiring notifications from the company, when they are considered by a national food assessment body as "substantially equivalent" to existing foods or food ingredients (as regards their composition, nutritional value, metabolism, intended use and the level of undesirable substances contained therein).
Novel foods are foods and food ingredients that have not been used for human consumption to a significant degree within the Community before 15 May 1997.
Companies that want to place a novel food on the EU market need to submit their application in accordance with Commission Recommendation 97/618/EC that concerns the scientific information and the safety assessment report required.

 Novel page
Studies of the novel as chronotope, another term coined by Bakhtin, have perhaps not been as important in the field as those focusing on issues of representation, identity, and heteroglossia, but it is an issue of large importance, especially in the work of more postmodern novelists like Salman Rushdie and critics like Homi Bhabha.
To some degree, this focus on the novel reflects a general shift of attention within literary studies away from poetry towards narrative, but we can further attribute the novel's predominance in postcolonial studies to three factors: the representational nature of the novel, its heteroglossic structure, and the function of the chronotope in the novel.
The representational power of the novel, its ability to give voice to a people in the assertion of their identity and their history, is of primary importance to postcolonial writers and scholars.

 The UVic Writer's Guide: Novel
Other types of novel include: the social novel, in which the protagonist's difficulties arise from the social context (Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath [1939]); and the historical novel, in which a historical setting is treated in a detailed and realistic manner (Tolstoy's War and Peace [1869]).
Novels can take any of the generic forms (epic, tragedy, comedy, romance, and satire), but there are two main types: the novel proper and the prose romance.
The novel is a long fictional narrative written in prose, which arose in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries and overtook verse narratives in popularity, eventually replacing them.

 Notes on the beginning of the English novel
The people who exist and the things that transpire in novels are recognizable as behaving and occurring in believable human ways -- things happen in the fictional world according to laws that are essentially like those governing the everyday world.
Readers of novels "identify" or "empathize" with the heroes and heroines of novels, suggesting a greater closeness between readers and novel characters than between readers and characters in other fictional forms.
Novels differ from earlier narrative fiction in a certain freedom from stereotypes in plot, character, and names.

 history
Novels consisted of stories that no longer fit into any other category existing in the literary genre of the time period.

 Saddam Husayn's Novel of Fear - Middle East Quarterly - Winter 2002
Saddam himself clashed with a succession of monarchs: the shah of Iran (in the novel Iran is represented by ancient Eilam), King Husayn of Jordan, and most importantly with the king of Saudi Arabia and the emir of Kuwait.
In the novel, the feudal lords (iqta‘iyyun) and the merchants are reviled as bloodsuckers of the people, and one need only remember the execution of forty-two merchants in 1992 to fathom Saddam’s animosity toward this group.
Two other contemptible figures, associated throughout the novel with churlish and brutal behavior, are the evil emir Hezkel and the merchant Shamil, readily identifiable to Iraqis as Israel and the Jews.

Horn, through his "particular knowledge" concept, has made his novel, contentually (pardon the neologism), fit into an encyclopedic rubric, albeit an unusual one, while retaining the form and style of a conventional encyclopedia.
Certainly, many novels feel encyclopedic in different ways, the first example that comes to mind being Moby Dick and the encyclopedic nature of the whaling knowledge contained within (another great example is Bouvard et Pecuchet (my favorite Flaubert)).
