Editing Fact and Fiction is a concise, practical guide for people interested in book publishing or already working as editors who want to learn more about the opportunities in various kinds of book editing.

It will be an indispensable guide for anyone thinking about making a career in book publishing, a valuable resource for editors working in publishing who want to enlarge their knowledge, and a useful tool for senior editors in training their staff.
