Kilgore Trout

Kurt Vonnegut made $millions pretending he didn’t write science fiction. Meanwhile, he had a repeating character named Kilgore Trout who was a down and out sf writer, based on Phillip K. Dick. So, did  Kasha Varnishkes Kurt Vonnegut ever do anything to help out Dick? Nope, not a thing. Heinlein bought him a Selectric typewriter when he really needed the help. Vonnegut: bupkes. Took advantage of Dick, and was a dick.
