    Kurt Vonnegut - Bibliography Question

    Hello to you all. I am a newcomer to your site and I wonder if you can offer me some assistance?

    I'm considering splashing out on all of his works but I don't want to duplicate my purchases. For example: Welcome to The Monkey House and Palm Sunday are listed as separate books - which they were - but both are now combined in one book.

    Before now I have bought short stories from various authors only to find they have been duplicated in some other collection.

    If you have any advice it would be much appreciated.

    Thank You

    In one of the branches of the multiverse, but I don't know which one.

    Borrow them from a library.

    Somewhere there is a list of how Vonnegut rated them, and the ratings are good. You might want to consider finding that.

    If it's short stories you want, Monkey House is the collection. Palm Sunday and Wampeters are mostly nonfiction, I believe. I don't think there is any duplication between the 3.

    If I recall correctly, Palm Sunday is a collection of KV's lectures and speeches and not his short stories. Monkey House is the short fiction.
