Hire the best science fiction book editors


From Wookiees to whole planets inhabited by evolved spiders, there’s no shortage of imagination in the science fiction genre. But while plots and characters might be out of this world and in a fantasy realm, the content and style of the writing still needs to adhere to some earthly rules and stipulations. If you want to make sure that the science behind your fiction checks out and that readers will be able to follow your worldbuilding, hire a science fiction book editor from Reedsy's marketplace. Their edits and comments will be informed by their knowledge of the genre, and they’ll be able to provide a thorough assessment of your work’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as answer any questions you may have.


The science fiction editors on our marketplace are carefully vetted to ensure they have the skills, knowledge, and experience it takes to turn your manuscript into a stellar finished product. They’ve worked with the biggest publishers in the business, helping some of the most prolific science fiction novelists of today polish their manuscripts — and your manuscript could be next. Sign up to browse our editors’ profiles, read reviews from past clients, and request quotes from some of the best science fiction book editors the industry has to offer.
