I think that criticisms of John Clute's style ignore
the fact that he is (unlike most critics) an original
prose stylist. His innovative, if sometimes contorted,
writing has vastly enriched SF criticism, not only
because of his cogent insights, but because he has
unlocked a critical vocabulary equal to the complete
expression of those insights. He has his clumsy and
inattentive moments, but I'd rather have him review
OBW than leave the task to pedestrian hacks like the
authors of certain other published reviews cited on
