Popular Book, Between Time And Timbuktu Or Prometheus 5 A Space Fantasy By Kurt Vonnegut This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Between Time And Timbuktu Or Prometheus 5 A Space Fantasy, Essay By Kurt Vonnegut Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You The unquestionable bottom of the Vonnegut barrel, this television screenplay cobbles together fragments of several novels and short stories to no evident purpose To be fair, Vonnegut distances himself from this work by stating up front that The first draft of the script, most of which survived, was by David O Dell Despite this, Vonnegut s name, not Mr O Dell s, graces the cover, so Vonnegut must ultimately be held responsible for this train wreck Two facts are telling First, this book has never been re issued to my knowledge Second, the finished product has never again to my knowledge been rebroadcast or made available on home video If Happy Birthday, Wanda June had been a misstep, this was an unmitigated disaster which only served to trivialize the powerful novels and stories from which its contents were unceremoniously torn.What was going on here It seems likely that Vonnegut was experiencing creative exhaustion and that this was a way to both tread water and to cash in on the enormous su For those who ve worked their way through Kurt s fourteen novels, five short story collections, four non fiction collections and assorted insubstantial curios, your last act of barrel scraping lies with his short lived career as a playwright Happy Birthday, Wanda June is your other option or perhaps you ve done that already top of the class and sadly, in addition to an old novella from the 40s Basic Training, someone has released his COLLEGE NEWSPAPER work as an e book in an act of madness although no trace of this exists on the Devil s Marketplace in the UK, sigh of relief This teleplay was released in hardcover at the height of Kurt s popularity, so is clearly a bibliography bolsterer, but not without its merits The teleplay appears to be an imaginative reprise of some of the best SF concepts and messages from his short stories I am biased.
