Thanks to our esteemed colleague, “Weavingword,” this story had a happy ending.
People are always trying to manipulate amazon.com’s Customer Reviews, one way or another. In my case, some nasty little Far Left insect didn’t like my politics, so he tried to convince readers that my books were one-star pieces of twaddle. Those one-star “reviews” really hurt–although they didn’t hurt for long.
I take great care to keep any and all “real-world politics” out of my books–let not a trace of it be found.
I did once read a “fantasy” in which the Elf turns to the Dwarf and says, “We must learn to celebrate one another’s diverse lifestyles.”
Run screaming to the sidewalk.
