Overall, his work usually averts this trope, however; he himself has probably presented the best summary of how his works approach politics:
-->Iím not a leftist trying to smuggle in my evil message by the nefarious means of fantasy novels. Iím a science fiction and fantasy geek. I love this stuff. And when I write my novels, Iím not writing them to make political points. Iím writing them because I passionately love monsters and the weird and horror stories and strange situations and surrealism, and what I want to do is communicate that. But, because I come at this with a political perspective, the world that Iím creating is embedded with many of the concerns that I have [...] Iím trying to say Iíve invented this world that I think is really cool and I have these really big stories to tell in it and one of the ways that I find to make that interesting is to think about it politically. If you want to do that too, thatís fantastic. But if not, isnít this a cool monster?

-->"I think for a lot of people who donít read pulp growing up, thereís a real surprise that the particular kind of Pulp Modernism of a certain kind of lush PurpleProse isnít necessarily a failure or a mistake, but is [[JustifiedTrope part of the fabric of the story and what makes it weird]]. Thereís a big default notion that ďspare,Ē or ďpreciseĒ prose is somehow better. I keep insisting to them that while such prose is completely legitimate, itís in no way intrinsically more accurate, more relevant, or better than lush prose."
