you want porn?

Finally got around to reading some Vonnegut. What better place to start than Slaughterhouse 5? Schlachthof Funf! As our erstwhile leader would say: "How many times do I have to tell you that I don't speak Nazi." I owe you five kowtows and a walk in a field of caltrops Jesus Henry. Some random information for those of you who appreciate that kind of Trivia. I guess the firebombing of Dresden fits into one of the general themes of this page. Kilgore Trout is Vonnegut's alter ego: based loosely on the actual sci-fi writer Theodore Sturgeon. "His stories get published only in porn magazines (such as the Black Garterbelt). The reason is simple: They cover the space between 'wide-open-beaver' photos and are incredibly cheap (Nobody reads them anyway). [Kilgore Trout]" Was Howard W. Cambell Jr. really a Nazi sympathizer? Well, check out Vonnegut's other book Mother Night. [Mother Night]. Ilium was the site of the Trojan war. [Ilium]. Finally, and this is the best, but Tralfamadore also appears in Vonnegut's Sirens of Titan. [Tralfamadore][Sirens of Titan].
