Uncollected Short Fiction - 24 Short Stories.
Before the Golden Age of magazines drew to a close half a century ago, a young PR man at General Electric sold his first short story to one of the doomed publications. By the time he'd sold his third, he decided to quit GE and join the likes of Hemingway and Fitzgerald and try to make a living at $1,500 a pop. With four major magazines running five stories each week and smaller ones scouting as well, it was a seller's market and Kurt Vonnegut was published regularly. For this unusual collection Vonnegut has selected 24 of his stories never published before in book form.
'Bagombo Snuff Box', the missing pieces of the master's oeuvre, is a ready-made classic for Vonnegut fans new and old. Included are 'Any Reasonable Offer', 'The Powder Blue Dragon', 'Hal Irwin's Magic Lamp', and 'Lovers Anonymous'.
