Kurt Vonnegut -- 1922-2007

In losing Kurt Vonnegut, we have lost not only one of the most unique voices of several generations, but also, for my money, one of the greatest pessimists who ever lived.

To paraphrase the man himself, he has turned the semicolon of old age into a period...and the literary world is worse for it.
