Why the name Kilgore Trout?

Kurt Vonnegut's famous alter-ego Kilgore Trout inspired us back in 1977. And with Vonnegut's permission, we named the store for the character who appeared repeatedly throughout Vonnegut's literary work. Next time you visit us, take a look at the original letter from Kurt, which we proudly display.
