Ah, so let me get this straight. Anyone who disagrees with your opinions on
literary quality is a child? Fascinatingly mature viewpoint ya got there.

Donaldson's early prose is mind-numbingly unreadable. Your mileage may well
vary, Grandpa.

As for able fantasy stylists, I prefer the work of folks like Gene Wolfe,
C.S. Friedman, Mervyn Peake, John Myers Myers, Jennifer Stevenson, John C.
Wright, Lois McMaster Bujold, even George R.R. Martin. But Donaldson? Pfah.
Life's far too short.

But then, you probably like *Tolkien*.... <shudder>
