At a booksellers convention breakfast, Dave Barry remembers, "people kept coming up to tell Douglas [Adams] how excited they were about his heavily promoted new Hitchhiker book. I asked him about it, and, glancing around, he whispered, 'I, umm, haven't actually started it.' " Fortunately, Adams overcome his procrastination to write a novel adaptation of a radio serial of The Hitchhike'sr Guide. The rest, of course, is history. Adams's 1979 comic science fiction masterpiece has become a counterculture classic, selling more than 14 million copies. This 25th anniversary Deluxe Edition is packed with an astounding array of new and never-before-collected Hitchhiker material, including contributions from Douglas Coupland, Neil Gaiman, and Terry Pratchett.

5.0 An Ode to a Lump of Green Putty I Found in my Armpit One Morning
My experience of Hitch-hikers Guide goes all the way back to the mid-eighties when I found this adventure game in a computer magazine that I typed out (though it is not the 1984 Infocom version). Basically it was one of those games where you wander around a world solving problems and collecting trea...

3.5 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
This was the book club selection for the group that I was hosting last night, so yesterday I decided that I better give it a quick read rather than depend upon my memory of the movie for discussion.
