On NPR this morning, Gore Vidal was suddenly there, calling Kurt Vonnegut a "good science fiction writer," and so I knew he was dead. His work was very important to me growing up and I got to see him read once. I'm grateful for the work, and the reading, and his life. But, boy, does his dying suck.
Updated: Christopher's Vonnegut stories -- that's the same reading I went to that he describes in part 2.
