I am a professional editor of scholarly books and fiction, and I would like everyone to know that it is the publisher's responsibility to clean up any errors in grammar, spelling, and logic. It is also up to the publisher to suggest revisions when some of the material in the manuscript is irrelevant or uninteresting. I do agree that some of the content was tangential to the subject, but the real problem with the book was that it was obviously not edited or even spell checked! Writers are not expected to be experts on the English language or even on word processing. Alexandra's publisher did the Holzer family a terrible disservice by producing a book containing errors so egregious that poor Hans must be turning over in his grave.
Ms. Holzer, if you happen to read this review, I would like to thank you for telling us what your father was like and how he lived his life when he wasn't ghost hunting. The sections about Hans were fascinating and I am so glad you decided to write about him. However, you and your family deserve better. I would be happy to edit this book for you in a professional manner so you can publish a revised and improved second edition that will present your family and your father's work in the respectable way they deserve.
Is he Holzer or Hans? And is his ex wife a "reputed" or "claimed" descendant of Catherine the Great or is she genuine?
I wanted to read about Eileen Garrett, Sybil Leek and Ethel Johnson Meyers, and Holzer's investigative techniques. But, alas, this book is filled with dumb editorial comments and unanswered questions.
All I can hope for is that someone who actually can write will pen a biography of Hans Holzer.
