In an August 1 article, Jason Boog of Galleycat announced that Amazon has recently acquired a license to enable writers of Kurt Vonnegut fan fiction to publish and sell their work – through Amazon’s new Kindle Worlds platform.
Donald C. Farber, Kurt Vonnegut Trust trustee, called this move “a natural extension of [Vonnegut's] legacy and a testament to the enduring popularity of his characters and stories. Billy Pilgrim, unstuck in time, is going to quickly become a Kindle Worlds favorite.”
Amazon’s fan fiction platform opened in June, and the Vonnegut service is expected to begin this month.
For more on Kurt Vonnegut, check out his Seven Stories titles God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian, A Man Without a Country, and Like Shaking Hands with God, as well as Gregory D. Sumner’s Unstuck in Time: A Journey Through Kurt Vonnegut’s Life and Novels.

“Publisher Seven Stories spared no expense in this deluxe trade paperback release: the 500 oversized pages are full of classic literature and poetry as interpreted by artists working in a variety of styles and media, including watercolor, pen and ink, and a few that left me wondering how they were crafted…one of the most ambitious and decadent projects of the year.”
