Bare Bone #6

pre-order Bare Bone #6

For fans of the incomparable William Gibson: I've just learned that he is blogging again after a long hiatus. You can find his current thoughts online here. Thanks to inflight for the heads-up!

Kurt Vonnegut's last conversation with the infamous science fiction writer Kilgore Trout. The piece is titled Requiem for a Dreamer. Link via the everlovin' maud.

This is my favorite quote from the piece:

"An artist says, 'I can't do anything about the chaos in the universe or my country, or even in my own miserable life, but I can at least make this piece of paper or canvas, or blob of clay or chunk of marble, exactly what it should be.'"
