I could have written this myself (except that I never read Jon Gisle's book;
I learned to appreciate Fethry here on DCML, actually).
I think this indicates that the Fethry stories are annoying to *children*,
while (slightly...) older people love them.
The Dutch editors never grew up: they banned Fethry in 1974. 8-)
