1. Alga, why do you think it's worse than any other Wolfe book?
Or are you just tired of his tricks?

2. I wonder how completely David Hartwell feels he needs to understand a
Wolfe book before he can publish it.  It doesn't seem that he has the
luxury of reading through 4 or 5 times and then thinking it over for a
while.  If he hasn't worked out all the puzzles (or even just the ending),
how can he edit effectively?  Does he demand spoilers?
