Re: The Past Decade of Trek Lit

I've never been under any pressure to write in any voice but my own. There were times when Marco resisted leaving in some of my more outrageous puns, but I was able to keep them if I pushed for them.

I do get sick of copyeditors changing all my "which"es to "that"s and my "over"s to "more than"s, though. Copyeditors are far too eager to treat such differences as absolute rules of grammar when they're really just arbitrary preferences.
