D.L. Snell, as a seven-dimensional being living in a human world, I've never felt comfortable and accepted at parties or nude beaches. So I was wondering, how would things be different if I were 500 feet tall?
Also, from your own experience as an editor, how much give and take do you like from authors? For example, you just mentioned that you suggest lots of rephrasing. Are they something where an author could say "I'll change A, C, and E, but B, D, and F really have to stay as they are," or are these "suggestions" in the Russian mafia/ Yakuza sense...?
What happens to that author who won't change a word?
