Vonnegut Update

Never-published Vonnegut short stories to be released this year: "A collection of never-before published short stories by Kurt Vonnegut, who died in 2007, will be released in an anthology later this year, according to the writer's longtime publisher.

Delacorte Press announced Friday, that Look at the Birdie — containing 14 stories — will be out in November.

'These are 14 exceptionally intricate short pieces by an author whose voice we miss immensely. Taken together, they give the reader a clear sense of Kurt Vonnegut's development into one of the most beloved and original American writers of all time,' said editor Nita Taublib, who put the collection together with Kerri Buckley."

It's a collection, not an anthology. An anthology is a many author collection of stories. At least as I understand words. A pet peeve of mine.

A little like using imply and infer interchangeably. At least in Steve's world.

But still good news.

Another case of dead writers taking sales from the living while aspiring authors never see the light of ink.

Kind of hard to blame the dead writers for this. Often the case that the dead didn't want to see their unpublished work published for good reason, at least among those writer who have sustained demand.
