A writer for radio, television, and theater, he was the creator of all the various manifestations of The Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy, which started as a radio show and then became a series of novels, a TV show, an album, a computer game, and several stage adaptations. Adams died on May 11, 2001.

Reviews

"Extremely funny . . . inspired lunacy . . . [and] over much too soon."--The Washington Post Book World

The feckless protagonist, Arthur Dent, is reminiscent of Vonnegut heroes, and his travels afford a wild satire of present institutions.--Chicago Tribune

Very simply, the book is one of the funniest SF spoofs ever written, with hyperbolic ideas folding in on themselves.--School Library Journal

"[A] whimsical odyssey . . . Characters frolic through the galaxy with infectious joy."--Publishers Weekly
