I can highly recommend Elizabeth Hollander as an editor of fiction, from my own experience. Dr Hollander has been a friend of mine since college. She has read much of my writing before publication, and has given helpful editorial advice. Sometimes she has pointed out specific details that don't work, or a broader aspect of the writing that needs to be improved. Sometimes - and this a rare talent - she has sensed that something needs to be added. Of course the editor is not the writer; she makes suggestions, and then it's up to the author to find a solution. If you're looking for an editor who can give either specific or more general guidance, look no further.
