I agree that The Death of Doctor Island is accessible in terms of
understanding the plot, but I also find it to be one of Wolfe's most
disturbing and offensive stories.  I can't imagine what a mass audience
would make of it.

(This leads me to wonder if I would dislike other Wolfe stories as much, if
only I could understand them.)
