Heather *champagne & sweatpants but in a goth way* (heather_crews) | 21 comments Hi, could you please remove the name "Heather Crews" from this book? It's my name and I've been misattributed as editor. Thanks!

You should probably rephrase that otherwise new librarians are going to be deleting all the valid editors from old/classic works of fiction, where the editor also wrote the introduction and compiled the bibliography.

Agreed, except that GR staff themselves never make that distinction, either. I always cringe when they say GR doesn't list editors of novels without making clear that it is copy editors they are talking about.
