I don't know about that.  I once looked at his afterword to a collection of
his short stories (DANCE BAND ON THE TITANIC, iirc), and it was pretty
self-important: he claimed that fans recognized him as the master of the
transformation story, just as Heinlein was the master of the time-travel
paradox story; and he talked about his stories of women magically
transformed into sex slaves as if they were serious warnings against women's
oppression (again, iirc).
