Amazon Will Publish Vonnegut Fanfiction

No.  Really.

Obviously the estate approved this.  I’m not sure what to think.  Come to think of it I’m not sure what Vonnegut would think.

So a few thoughts

I really didn’t see this coming.  Really.

I’m not sure Vonnegut is well known enough to be a big draw, I wonder if people who read Vonnegut will be that big on this,

Could this also introduce more people to Vonnegut?

I wonder how many properties owned by estates realize – or are realizing – that this could be big money.  Or authors who are “done” could find additional monetization.

Did I mentioned this weirded me out?  Yeah.
