RIP Kurt Vonnegut

There goes another one. :frowning:

So it goes.

Mr. Vonnegut was the most critically underappreciated writer of the 20th century.

A toast to Vonnegut the Great! drink

…And now back to the Anna Nicole bullshit. :frowning:

Damnit… one of my favorite authors. I hope that he rests in peace.

May he rest in peace. ;_;

Whoever did write this doesn’t know the first thing about Kurt Vonnegut!

At least after the first death, there is no other.

I’ve only read Timequake and his last one. Found them a bit unoriginal and “tired” tbh.

Read some of his earlier work. :slight_smile:

This freaked me out since I actually finished “Man Without a Country” last night.

I’ll agree that he is easily one of the most critically under-appreciated artists of our century, a cynical master of science fiction who helped define the genre as a viable method for more “aristic” endeavors among spacement beating up aliens, but an actual source of psychological questions and philosophical dilemmas that wouldn’t come to pass in the real world.

Oh his works, Breakfast of Champions is my favourite.

See, now I HAVE to finish Sirens of Titan.
