Kurt Vonnegut has passed RIP

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
One of the greatist writers of the 20th century has died at the age of 84. My generation in particular was influenced by his humour and anti war views. Even though you were an atheist " God bless you " Mr. Vonnegut for giving us so many ideas that would not have come otherwise.

There's a nice piece here about him on AICN : http://www.aintitcool.com/node/32255

Hey was a unique writer and I very much enjoyed his books and stories. He will be missed.
