Hi Alan,

Please forgive the delay; I somehow keep missing these.

As for the book order, chronologically, the stories go as follows: The Private Sector, World-Mart, and Aftermath. The storyline jumps forty years between The Private Sector and World-Mart, however, so you can read them in any order as long as you read World-Mart right before Aftermath.

Thank you for your inquiry. Take care!(less)

Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut
“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut
Leigh Lane liked a quote
A Man Without a Country by Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“Words are like shards of glass. By themselves they're worthless; however, when placed together in just the right way, they can become great works of art.”
Leigh M. Lane

“Moreover, people have become accustomed to reading to escape as opposed to reading to think.”
