Damon Knight on Editors and Submissions

"[E]ditors*... have individual tastes, preferences, and blind spots.  If your story comes back with an angry or indifferent rejection from an editor, that may be because the story is bad, or because that editor was not equipped to appreciate it.  Send it out again."
-- Damon Knight in Creating Short Fiction

*Damon Knight was well known as a writer and an editor, especially for the Orbit anthology series.
