Editing: Books Edited and Proofread

My book editing work encompasses both manuscript editing and proofreading. I provide each client with a detailed list of notes and queries, from issues of grammar to names, dates, and other fact-checking items. (I have also done fact-checking as separate, stand-alone work.) Among the reference works on which I rely are the Chicago Manual of Style and the MLA Handbook, the Canadian Oxford Dictionary and Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary, and an assortment of other guides, reference books, and foreign-language dictionaries. In addition, I use the Internet extensively in both linguistic and fact-checking queries, and have found many an invaluable Web site en route.

Books are listed chronologically in each section, with the most recently edited first.

    From a reader of Hitchens vs. Blair:
    "It could be legitimately asked what value there is to having this small book when the debate itself is widely available online for free, but I would argue there are at least three benefits. One, there are a few footnotes included in the book that help clarify references the speakers make; two, the book includes an interview with Hitchens as a fun post-script to the debate that's worth reading; and three, being able to read the text is a slightly different experience than is watching the debate." [Emphasis added.]
