Since it's a blog, other folks weighed in and commented on his opinions, some arguing with his positive assessment of these writers' style, and others agreeing. There was a lot of discussion of some lines from an early work by Valente called Labyrinth:
"My body is bound with guitar strings, nipples like fawn's hooves strumming E minor chords ..."
Some people found this intriguing, while others found it nonsensical. After several pro and con comments on these and other works, the comments included one by (this is the wonderful thing about blogs) Catherynne M. Valente! She pointed out that her style had changed over the years, so that not every reader would necessarily like all her books.
It's an interesting discussion. I'm lucky MHF pointed it out to me!
