Kilgore trout is the alter-ego of Kurt Vonnegut. When I first got into Vonnegut I began reading references to Trout, as if he was some old friend of Vonnegut; then I realised he was "another writer". So to my surprise one day I found a secondhand copy of Venus on the Half-Shell. Here's a biographical background to Kilgore Trout including some reviews of Half-Shell.
