With an introduction to the introduction by Terry Jones
Douglas Adams changed the face of science fiction with his cosmically comic novel The Hitchhikerâs Guide to the Galaxy and its classic sequels. Sadly for his countless admirers, he hitched his own ride to the great beyond much too soon. Culled posthumously from Adamsâs fleet of beloved Macintosh computers, this selection of essays, articles, anecdotes, and stories offers a fascinating and intimate portrait of the multifaceted artist and absurdist wordsmith.
Join Adams on an excursion to climb Kilimanjaro . . . dressed in a rhino costume; peek into the private life of Genghis Khanâwarrior and world-class neurotic; root for the harried authorâs efforts to get a Hitchhiker movie off the ground in Hollywood; thrill to the further exploits of private eye Dirk Gently and two-headed alien Zaphod Beeblebrox. Though Douglas Adams is gone, heâs left us something very special to remember him by. Without a doubt.
âWorth reading and even cherishing, if only because itâs the last weâll hear from the master of comic science fiction.ââThe Star-Ledger
About: A final installment in the series that began with 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' is taken from the late author's previously unpublished personal files and features the same offbeat adventures of Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, and their companions.
