SO IT GOES, coming Spring 2013 from PMMP.

SO IT GOES: A TRIBUTE TO KURT VONNEGUT, featuring my story, “The Fountain of Relative Youth”, is scheduled for a spring release from Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing.

The volume will blend satire, gallows humor, and science fiction in the tradition of Vonnegut works such as CAT’S CRADLE (1963), SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE (1969), and BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS (1973).

I’ll be joined by a number of writers familiar to me (Roger, Wilburn, Dunham, and Dorr–sounds like a law firm!) as well as writers I’m eager to discover (everybody else):

  • “The Grand Tour” by Frank Roger
  • “Saving God” by Jay Wilburn
  • “How to Succeed in Academia” by K. A. Laity
  • “Critical Thinking Skills” by James W. Hritz
  • “The Unhappy Accident or Feelin’ Fine” by T. Fox Dunham
  • “The Truth” by Jonathan Balog
  • “You’re Toast by” E.E. King
  • “The Joke’s on You” by Philip Simondet
  • “It Takes Four to Tango” by Mike Sheedy
  • “The Policy” by Thomas Messina
  • “Riding” by Aric Zair
  • “Corrective Action (or Illegal Discharge Legally Charged)” by Tony Wayne Brown
  • “Dead Girls, Dying Girls” by James Dorr
  • “Modern Science Has Yet to Find a Cure” by Michael Lee Smith
  • “The Fountain of Relative Youth” by Christian A. Larsen
  • “My Best Friend is a Robot” by Brady Gerber
  • “Fido” by James Wymore
  • “Megastar Hopper” by Sue Lange
  • “Dog. Girl. Armless Karaoke Maniac.” by Joseph McKinley
  • “Nedserd” by Eli Wilde
  • “A Tribute to Ernest Glipp” by C. M. Chapman

PMMP says Vonnegut “was a man who pushed his imagination off a cliff and followed it for the whole drop; a man who was able to write the most cynical material, yet make you die of laughter at the same time.” SO IT GOES will do the same.

  1. Just finished reading AND SO IT GOES by Charles Shields. A wonderful biography of Vonnegut. Recommended! Also suggest Loree Rackstraw’s memoir LOVE AS ALWAYS, KURT.
