A "Novel" is a long narrative built around a complex plot usually taking place in a fictional or semi-fictional world. The genre evolved from the medieval chivalric novel to become one of the most versatile literary genres. Authors wishing to use this genre for satirical purposes must avoid straight denigration and bad taste. They should just keep in mind that the most powerful pieces of satire were often written in a way that let everybody get the message without providing any angle for prosecuting the authors even in the context of total censorship and authoritarian regimes.
