I wouldn't bother to dispute anyone's informed opinion on the man or his work, they are after all, informed opinions. My only comment was that it was foolishness not to even consider reading him because somebody else has grown tired of him. I've grown tired of many of my former must read authors. By some odd coincidence, most of them write about Florida. Fortunately, there's no shortage of good work out there.
