Re: Sim/Vonnegut synchronistic incident (now OT)
Gahan Wilson did the same thing in Eddy Deco's Last Caper. I think I once heard of other cartoonists writing novels using that technique. Steranko,maybe? Or Gil Kane?

Vonnegut actually "illustrates" the novel with his own doodles.
Nothing much more intracate than what you might scribble on a
cocktail napkin. But the doodles are not just illustrations in the
sense of Victor Reid "Reads". They are part of the story. The text
will say something like "A pea is a green legume that looks like
this", and it will be followed by his doodle of a pea. So you can't
just read the text and ignore the pictures. The drawings are part of the text!
