Don't panic, Pack your towel, pour yourself a pangalactic gargle blaster, and take off on a wild, no-holds-barred tour of the life and career of Douglas Adams, creator of the phenomenally successful Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Book News
Douglas Adams' most famous and enduring work was the series of books that began with Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy , a light hearted science fiction spoof that inspired a cult following in the United States and his native Britain. Simpson (co-founder of the science fiction magazine SFX ) approaches his biographical subject with a similar lightness, including large amounts of anecdotal material from friends, colleagues, and acquaintances.

Rich with information, but poorly organized. Author assumes you've got a PhD in Adams' personal history. I consider myself an avid reader and fan, but got irritated by how the narrative hops around and makes allusions to things not yet discussed.
