R.I.P. Kurt Vonnegut

He was one of the greatest. The first time I read Vonnegut was in elementary school. Sixth grade. I read some of his short stories.

The first of his novels that I read was Slaughterhouse Five, in high school. I was hooked. Cat's Cradle; God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater; Breakfast of Champions; Player Piano; Sirens of Titan...

Thanks for everything, Kurt.

UPDATE: I should have mentioned that Harrison Bergeron is a short story that everybody must read.
