if($typecount>0) {
    class con_latest_reviews extends WP_Widget {
        function con_latest_reviews() {
            /* Widget settings. */
            $widget_ops = array( 'classname' => 'Continuum Latest Reviews', 'description' => 'Displays a single review type by most recent or highest rated. Add multiple widgets for each review type.' );

            $control_ops = array( 'width' => 250, 'height' => 350, 'id_base' => 'con_latest_reviews' );

If all you need to do is add that extra parameter, just concatenate it on to the end of $args. (As a side note: I recommend using an array for args instead of the query string method as I find it much more readable.)

<?php
....
$args='&posts_per_page='.$numreviews.'_reviews&order=DESC&orderby='.$feedsort.$metakey.'&author=123';
....
