The girls’ guide to finding an editor who knows how to edit

I found this while reading The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing. I’ve read this sentence over and over…and over…and I still can’t figure out what it is actually supposed to be saying. I’m talking about four lines up from the bottom:

“. . .it was an on the same”? Right. *Hope continues to scratch her head in contemplation*

One thought on “The girls’ guide to finding an editor who knows how to edit

  1. Check out Piers Anthony’s “But What of Earth?“. He describes the problems he encountered while attempting to get the book published. He is particularly unhappy about the horrible copy-editing to which the book was subjected.

    The book includes the title story, made readable.
