What's in a name?

A few days ago I found a review for my horror anthology Low Noon on a website. The review had come out in April of 2017 but I was unaware of it. Alas, the book is out of print although used copies are around.  The odd thing was it was inexplicably attributed to David A. Riley.  The cover clearly shows David B. Riley (that's me) and David A. isn't mentioned anywhere.  David A. is a British horror writer  who people keep confusing with me.  That's why I always go by David B. Riley and not simply David. It's bad enough people at cons want me to sign his books, but now he's getting my reviews as well.  

It was a nice review.  Just wish it had the name right.

Addendum: The nice folks at SF Reader have corrected the name error on the review since I first wrote this.
