*scatches head*

Not sure how this one got through like this on Amazon but it's worth a chuckle to see.

Not sure how the book title got weirded out, but the one and only review is Amazon's *cough* highly respected #1 reviewer. Some of the chit chat on one of her other reviews suggests that she gave it five stars at B&N so someone must have complained about that. How the comment ended up in the title itself it a mystery.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
