I am sick! It is no fun. I finished "The Sirens of Titan" the other day, a book that I really should have read a long time ago. Very good. There is something very reassuring about the way Vonnegut paperbacks have looked since the early 90s. The design looks ever-so-slightly dated now, but it's just so pleasingly distinctive. It makes possible the sort of random conversations as when I sitting around in some anonymous spot in Hamburg Hall and someone from a distance of like ten yards was like "Hey, which Vonnegut is that? [Sirens of Titan, I said] Oh, that's a good one!".
