Greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Kurt Vonnegut last night, though it should hardly come as a shock. Anyone who has not read his Man Without a Country really ought to. It’s a fitting last testimony from one of the giants of 20th century letters, a tender, touching, embittered (but not truly bitter) and honest reflection on what it means to be alive at this moment in time. KV would no doubt appreciate, if nothing else, that he left before having to endure any more of this rapacious regime.

However, with the death of RAW and now this, I am greatly concerned for the life of Alisdair Gray. Someone please tell him to be careful.
