I hope Mr. Trout is even now enjoying his own chronosynclastic infundibulum. I read Sirens of Titan at the age of 12, and was hooked.

Good bye, sir.

Thats about the age at which I discovered Vonnegut, or maybe a little older. My first was Cat's Cradle, but Sirens was my favourite.

I adored Slapstick! The only one of his books I couldn't bond with was Player Piano.

Slapstick was my favorite, too.

I can't think of anything he wrote that I didn't like, but I'd have to say Cat's Cradle would have been my favorite as well.

He'll be missed.

That explains so very much.

Slaughterhouse-Five. So long, Mr. Vonnegut, and thank you, very very much.

Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies: Goddamn it, you’ve got to be kind!

Sirens of Titan rather later in life. He should be compulsory reading, especially for those who would never dream of reading him.

A light has gone out. The night feels colder and darker than it did.
