Goodbye to the Monkey House!

This makes me sad...

Kurt Vonnegut Dies at 84

Though it's never been a warm and fuzzy "feel-good read," I've loved Vonnegut's work since I first read Slaughterhouse-Five as required reading in 10th grade. He combined tales of wartime brutality and sci-fi/fantasy with a sense of irony and humor that made the tough stuff easier to absorb.

I always liked his short stories best, collected in books like "Welcome to the Monkey House" and "Bagombo Snuff Box."

Goodbye, Mr. Vonnegut! And thank you!
