Kurt Vonnegut and his brother Bernard worked together at GE's innovation laboratory called The House of Magic.  Ginger Strand who has written a book called: The Brothers Vonnegut: Science and Fiction in the House of Magic which cronicals their relationship and the inspiration for Kurts stories.   I just attended a reading for the book and immediately bought one.


 Much of the research at GE's lab is the foundation for many of Kurt's books, in particular Ice-9 from Cats Cradle.

I'm a huge Kurt Vonnegut fan so I'm excited to know more about his relationship with his brother and the inspiration for many of his books.
