No.  Wolfe isn't saying Brooks is good.  He's criticizing those who slam
Brooks for being a Tolkien ripoff.  Wolfe wants more Tolkien ripoffs and
claims to be a Tolkien ripoff himself.  

It's OK to slam Brooks for being bad, just don't slam him for trying to
write the kind of books that Wolfe wants to read.
