Douglas AdamsIn case you haven’t picked up on the reference yet, the title to this page is a not so subtle homage to the late, great creator of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams. (That’s him over to the right.) I haven’t reread Hitchhiker’s in a few years, but I was pleasantly surprised by the movie adaptation, especially considering I had what were probably impossibly high expectations. Once again, Alan Rickman is absolutely without equal as Martin. Who would Adams appeal to? Anglophiles (his pillorying of British bureaucracy is priceless), anyone with a sense of humor and appreciation for good satire, and obviously sci/fi enthusiasts.
