Review: "Editor" copyediting software

Over at Today's Author, I take a look at of “Editor”, a product of Serenity Software. It's an interesting software package that will scan your prose for things like:

Sure, MS Word will spot your mismatched verb tenses, but will it spot a tautology? Or a cliché? Or a pretentious term?

For my review, I fed in the novel I've been shopping around to agents, which I felt was 99.99% fine. How did it fare? What errors were spotted? SPOILER: lots and lots and lots. The software gives extremely detailed outputs, with suggestions for changes and alternate wording for each issue spotted.

Go take a look at the review. Feel free to comment, there or here.
