Format: Paperback
A great little book by MJ Simpson, the man who knew more about Douglas Adams than even Douglas did! It details lots of interesting bits from Douglas' career and specifically Hitch Hiker's. If you want to know about DNA from the perspective of a dedicated, enthusiastic, literate fan (rather than a money-grabbing, vindinctive agent) then buy this and look out for MJS' bio of Douglas too.

HASH(0x9151bc84) out of 5 stars Bare bones history... 21 May 2008
By Michael Valdivielso - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book traces the history of the radio show, the books, the television series, and the movie. Lists of caste members, media reactions to the shows and quotes from important people. A slim, bare bones guide to the Hitch Hiker's Guide and all its forms. Don't look for photos or long, detailed, essays on the meaning of life, Zaphod Beeblebrox, or the Heart of Gold. Good to have if you want a background history on Douglas Adam's work in radio, TV and the printed media.
