I don't think "contemporary scholarship" is that monolithic.  A lot of
those authorship debates seem to me to be based on too little evidence.
Some of the arguments I've seen for that position could be used to prove
that the Gene Wolfe who wrote the New Sun books is not the same person who
wrote the Long Sun books (significant stylistic differences, a large chunk
of vocabulary unique to one series or the other, different tehological
ideas and concerns, etc.)
