Bo Fowler | 9 comments I'm a conventionally published author now going ebook indie.


Some of the happiest moments in my life have occurred while writing.

My influences include Richard Brautigan, Kurt Vonnegut and Fredrick Nietzsche.

Here are links to my books available on the Kindle for 86p:

Scepticism Inc by Bo Fowler Scepticism Inc
Notes From the Autopsy of God by Bo Fowler Notes From the Autopsy of God
The Philosophy of Stars by Bo Fowler The Philosophy of Stars

Scepticism inc. I guess :)


Patti (baconater) (Goldengreene) | 53808 comments Love Vonnegut. All of his stuff but especially Galapagos. Nietzsche...not so much. I feel he always approached and presented his thoughts at 90 degree angles. I prefer directness. Can't say I know Brautigan. If I've read him, I've found him forgettable.

How did those three authors influence you, Bo? In your writing only or in your approach to life generally?

Yes, Galapagos is good remember the labels on the guys jacket? Vonnegut taught to me to enjoy writing, Brautigan taught me to try and surprise myself (and my readers) and Nietzsche encourages me to question my assumptions.
