Amazon flooded with negative reviews of Megyn Kelly’s memoir

Supporters of President-elect Donald Trump’s have flooded Amazon with negative reviews of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s new memoir.

The Los Angeles Times reports hundreds of negative reviews of Kelly’s “Settle For More” have appeared on the online retail giant’s site since its release Tuesday. The newspaper reports many of the negative comments came from a link from a pro-Trump Reddit forum.

Kelly and Trump had a contentious relationship during the campaign.

Tina Andreadis, an executive with the book’s publisher, HarperCollins, tells the L.A. Times the reviews have the “hallmarks of an orchestrated effort to discredit the book” and brought them to the attention of Amazon.

Amazon didn’t immediately respond to a request to comment.

H.G. Wells ghost story published for 1st time


Here’s an odd story, from long ago: A man by the name of Meredith has converted a room in his house to a cluttered, dirty study. Meredith has a taste for Scotch whisky and one day asks a visiting friend, the story’s narrator, if he doesn’t notice something odd about the ceiling.

“Don’t you see it?” he said.

“See what?”

“The – thing. The woman.”

“I shook my head and looked at him.”

“All right then,” he said abruptly. “Don’t see it!”

This brief hybrid of ghost tale and detective story is called “The Haunted Ceiling” and its author is H.G. Wells, later known for such science-fiction classics as “The Invisible Man” and “The Time Machine.” He apparently wrote “The Haunted Ceiling” in the mid-1890s, when he was around 30, and left it unseen by others. It debuted last week, more than a century later.

“The Haunted Ceiling” is so obscure that two Wells scholars, Patrick Parrinder and Michael Sherborne, said they had never seen it before. Judging from the style and content, they guessed it dated to around 1895, when ghost stories were popular and Wells was both prolific and in need of money.
