Should you find yourself unstuck from time, at this moment, I wish for you to have more control over your events than Billy Pilgrim did.

Yeah, I know you'd find that statement ludicrous. I agree to disagree. Slaughterhouse Five still rules.


Kurt Vonnegut.

Everyone I like for writing seems to be ending up dead.

I know he was rather up there in age, but with Douglas Adams, Hunter Thompson . . . I expect Bret Easton Ellis to be ripped to shreds by wolves sometime this decade.

Off he goes to the Parthenon of Dead Writers. I hope 100 years from now his books will still be read. I hope in 100 years from now books will still be read.

S-5 was literally that timeless to me. Innovative, irreverent, jovial, thought-provoking.

It was quite a revelation after reading nothing but Steven King novels in high school, though there's nothing wrong with Steven King.

My dead aunt turned me on to SK. I needed SK's jazz when I was little. They were great and fearful distractions. Loved some of those stories from SK.

Some guys people want around forever. Vonnegut was doing a pretty nifty job of that.

If anything, I'll say the world is wide open for new voices.
