Kurt Vonnegut has died. He was 84. He's been one of my favorite authors ever since my junior year in high school, when Mr. Johanson had us read Slaughterhouse-Five. Among other things, he coined one of my favorite words, granfalloon. Look--you can get free pdf versions of some of his books (if you want to sign up for Wowio, please let me know)! Busy, busy, busy.
