Mr. Bear - one of your characters: Vergil Ulam is up to no good on my eBook review page. While I am sure another writer, particuarly a very accomplished one such as yourself, would not do such a thing, I still thought you should know what someone is doing in the name of one of your famous characters . One of my children showed me several books of yours that I had purchased for them verifying that the character, Vergil Ulam, is indeed a character you created. The least Mr. Ulam could have done was to purchase or borrow the book and at least get the Chapter info correct before he told everyone that using my book caused his mess to turn into grey goo and nearly burned down his lab. While the post was amusing, it could mislead many beginning canners. Words are meant to be played with and while it may not be appreciated, it is still completely legal. Please see what your character is up to: http://www.amazon.com/NANO-CANNING-BASIC-RECIPES-INSTRUCTION-ebook/product-reviews/B007HEXNY2/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

Very uncool! Maybe we need to find a use for canned trolls. The other reviews lead me to believe your book is excellent. And that's what it's all about, really.
