Writing Well: The Editors.
"No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft." --H.G. Wells (1866-1946)
"I have performed the necessary butchery. Here is the bleeding corpse." --Henry James (1843-1916)after a request by the Times Literary Supplement to cut 3 lines from a 5,000 word article.
