The collection, called “Look at the Birdie,” contains 14 stories by the author of “Slaughterhouse-Five” and other works, Delacorte Press announced Friday.

The publisher says it plans to reissue 15 Vonnegut titles including “Mother Night,” “The Sirens of Titan,” “Galapagos” and “Slaughterhouse-Five.” Also due: another collection of his unpublished writings and a book of letters sent to and from the author during his life.
