Reading a blog post from Cristian Mihai in The Art of Blogging, earlier this week reminded how useful I’ve found this little book over the years. Most recently, when I was doing a spot of editing for my good friend, Paul English, whose latest book, “Fire Angel: Turning Point” from his ‘Fire Angel Universe’ series, is just out now.
Strunk and White’s “The Elements of Style” was first introduced to me by the wonderful Ursula K. Le Guin (sadly no longer with us), in her excellent book on story writing: “Steering the Craft”, which was a huge help to me early on in my writing life.
