(from Bagombo Snuff Box)
Well, obviously I was trying to pay tribute to my favorite writer of all time. As I’m sure you heard, Kurt Vonnegut passed away yesterday. Well this selection, the title story from his “uncollected short fiction” collection, isn’t quite up to snuff. I mean, it’s interesting enough, and has a decent twist, but KV would go on to write novels that completely rock my world. This story’s just so-so. Sigh. This is some tribute, eh? What I want to say is the world’s a little darker without Kurt Vonnegut out there.
