There are some wonderful stories that I just can’t enjoy, because the author has done such a poor job with the language.  One of the reasons that I wanted to write The Well-Presented Manuscript was selfishly to increase my own enjoyment of other people’s books by helping them to not make so many errors that would keep hooking my attention as I was reading them.
