He once wrote for oprainfall, but he now spends most of his time editing books. Like most editors, he has a tendency to hide in the shadows, watching for misplaced modifiers and things that dangle.

Paradox Error

Paradox Error Review (Switch)

Paradox Error Review: A Sinister Glitch in the System     Rules are meant to be broken, and so are walls, especially the fourth wall. Not breaking walls is just so passé. As an editor, I have, shall we say, an aggressive opinion about when it’s appropriate to break…
