I recently wrote a horror story involving a medium and submitted it to an anthology. The editor gave me some good feedback on weaknesses in the POV, and on mediumship terminology. Unfortunately the editor still isn't interested in using the story unless I make factual changes where I've used a bit of poetic licence - for example, in my story a sitter touches the medium who's in a trance, but apparently people aren't supposed to do that. I've decided to pull my submission and try the story elsewhere.
This is the first time I've had an editor insist on making characters believe as they should in a perfect world!
