Goodnight Kurt Vonnegut.

Kurt Vonnegut died last night from complications arising from brain damage he’d sustained from a bad fall a few weeks back. 

I’m so saddened by this I can’t even write up a decent post about it.  Vonnegut was a huge influence on my life, and I’d devoured everything he’d written (at that point) before I entered high school. Which probably explains more than a few things about me, I suppose.  He was the closest thing we had to a living Mark Twain, and now he’s gone.  Dammit.

G’night Kurt.

    I am ashamed to say, I haven’t read anything by him.

    Making plans to change that.
