Ooh, and we thought people in the highfalutin' world of literature didn't do things like this. (This is a NY Times link. I believe I've gotten one that you do not need to be registered to read; please let me know if that's not so.) I think Mr. Rechy has a very good point about people being able to anonymously trash books on Amazon. It would have been more honest to say "I am the author of this book and I'd like to respond to that" -- didn't there used to be an "I am the author" function in the review section? -- but then people probably wouldn't believe it was them!
