For 3 novels I have capitalized my alien races. Now that I'm finally about to send the first off to agents, I have made several small but important
changes, and I am wondering if this capitalization should be one. I would like some opinions first, though.
I am aware that at present we do not capitalize 'human' any more than we do cat, dog, horse, worm. However, we do capitalize French, German, Irish,
etc, and to me, when the galaxy is a community of many alien races, it would be closer to the latter.
I know ultimately it is a matter of personal preference and it's up to me and what I want, but I'd like to know what others think. So capitalized
or not? Human or human?
