RIP, Kurt Vonnegut

April 12 2007

Today we mourn the passing of a great creative writer, Kurt Vonnegut, at age 84.  Vonnegut was one of the first authors that I read as a collection -- in other words, his writing was so good, I eagerly consumed all his stuff back in my teenage bookstore groupie years.  Galapagos Islands was one of the first hardcover books I ever bought.  His writing helped inspire creativity for me.  Knowing the demographics of this site, I imagine many of you would say the same.  Peace, Mr. Vonnegut, and thanks.
