This morning I noticed a new "review" on the Amazon listing for my 2009 chapbook 6/9: Improvisations in Dependence. It's by someone using the identity "night ballet."
I knew it couldn't be by my friend Dianne Borsenik, who runs NightBallet Press and published my 2012 book The Eater of The Absurd. So I wondered who it was. I clicked on night ballet and noticed that he or she had reviewed other books, back in 2006.
