Hi, I am new to this, and a fan of Douglas Adams' book, and recent movie, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Just recently, I have been assigned to do a report, more or less Junior Project, for my school. I chose to do it on Douglas Adams himself. Sadly, he is no longer with us, and I hadn't known that untill just a few moments ago. smiley - wah
And here I was ready to have some sort of chat with the great author himself.
Anyways, I would like to know if any one had any HUGE "must-know" information that I might be able to use in my report about Douglas Adams. I would greatly apreciate it. smiley - loveblush
I already have alot of information on him, but I am curious to know more about him. If you know anything at all, that would be wonderful!
Thanks a bunch.
I'm going to go make tea now.
smiley - tea

Maybe after I have finished my report I will type a copy up for everyone to see here. Although I am a writer myself, writing a person's biography/history is not really my strong point. smiley - erm
It always bores me, of course, in Douglas Adams' case, it is a different story. Every time I find new information about him I find myself delighted in a way. ^_^

Douglas is an amazingly hilarious writer, and has also inspired me to write a few, short story, science fictions of my own.
smiley - cheers
Cheers to you Douglas Adams!

To get all the great, funny information about DNA that you'll ever need, read the book The Salmon of Doubt. I would would recommend it to you even if you weren't doing a report, as it provides a hilarious insight into the life of Douglas Adams. Hope you do well on your report.smiley - smiley

Salmon of Doubt is my favorite all-time book. It not only inspires, but tickles. Plese read it for a sense of Douglas's personality. I actually have also listened to it on CD in the car - wonderful format.

I wonder if anyone would be brave enough to consider finishing Salmon of Doubt story.

Wow, finishing Salmon of Doubt. I never even thought of that. I'm not sure. Hmmmm... It might be cool to have all the h2g2 members collaborate. Then its more of a tribute than trying to take DNA's book. It could turn out to be a really good idea, im up for it.smiley - smiley
