Way too harsh on poor Alistair

I haven't read Wake but have read the first of the trilogy and most of his othes and I don't recognise him as described here. . Agree he's a bit of a journeyman compared to Banks, Stross et al but deserves more credit than given here. . His novels often suffer from inconsistent pacing and sometimes choppy scene shifts but at heart he's a fine writer - well above average.
