From the official Style Sheet, as drawn up by my publisher, St. Martin’s:
- uses fragments
- favors vague pronoun constructions (e.g., “It would be like finding a new kind of bird,” where “It” has no clear antecedent)lightly edited for especially confusing instances
- recounts visits, demos, etc. in present tense
- uses “human” as noun form for “human being”
The fully copyedited MS came today. It was like Christmas a month early.
