Kurt Vonnegut

From #2: "It seemed to me that science fiction writers were writing about the most important issues of our time, and that the mainstream writers and those most respected by critics were still dealing with the subtleties of human character and motivation and all that. Meanwhile, we've created these monstrous engines and social schemes and so forth which are having more influence on us than anything else. So I created Kilgore Trout to say 'maybe these guys can't write so well, but they're sure talking about what needs to be talked about.'"

  1. despite the terrible music, that was beautiful. As you know, Vonnegut is my favorite. Thanks for this post even though it was long ago. -lil sis
