Someone started a thread on KBoards, asking for recommendations for editors. http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,144480.0.html
Funny that everyone LOVES their editor. Testimonials are meaningless, I think. Same as reputation. The more I think about it, the more I think the sample should be the deciding factor. I can't go and read every book every editor I intend to solicit samples from edited and compare. In fact, even that wouldn't mean shit, because who knows what each one started out with, and which of their suggestions the author refused or accepted. This is definitely an intimate choice.
