Attention all Tralfmadorians, Bokononists, and other Vonnegut fanatics!
In case you didn't know, Seven Stories is collecting, for the first time ever, the entire corpus of Kurt Vonnegut's short fiction. We call it . . . drumroll please . . . Complete Stories.
There's more. We're also giving advance copies away for free on Goodreads. That means you pay no money, and then you get a book in exchange for no money. It's a great deal. All you have to do is sign up for Goodreads (if you're not already a member) and click away madly at the "Enter Giveaway" button.
And in case you want to know a little more about the book:
Coming out September 26th, Kurt Vonnegut's Complete Stories features five of his previously unpublished works. Curated and introduced by his longtime friend Dan Wakefield and famed Vonnegut scholar Jerome Klinkowitz, with a foreward by Dave Eggers, Vonnegut's "Complete Stories" puts his great wit, humor, and humanity on full display. This is an extraordinary new work for readers, Vonnegut fans, and scholars alike.
We invite you to read the first three chapters of Parable of the Sower from the newest edition, released February 2017.
"If there is one thing scarier than a dystopian novel about the future, it's one written in the past that has already begun to come true." -- Gloria Steinem, Parable of the Sower Introduction
In a sense we need to take the wind out of the sails of fake news and rhetorical hyperbole by charting a practical course toward social democratic/democratic socialist policies on health, education, immigration, environment, economy, labor, social justice and foreign policy.
A few weeks ago Triangle Square Books for Young Reader’s Facebook page was attacked by a wave of conservative homophobes. That the attacks and one-star ratings were instigated by a blogger who once videotaped herself eating bacon while ranting about Islamic terrorists was hideous enough. But the fact that she chose to egg on her followers with homo- and transphobic language during Pride Week was particularly galling.
