Hitchhiker: A Biography of Douglas Adams was just released in the U.K. this month. The book was penned by Mike "M.J." Simpson, who has been a chronicler and biographer of Douglas Adams for years. Douglas Adams died May 11, 2001, but his contributions to humorous fiction are unforgettable. Among those interviewed for the book were Terry Jones, frequent Graham Chapman collaborator Bernard McKenna and former Python agent Jill Foster. Pythonic collaborations discussed in detail - apart from Douglas' contributions to the final final season of the Flying Circus and the Holy Grail soundtrack album - include Out of the Trees A Liar's Autobiography Our Show for Ringo Starr A Christmas Fairly Story Starship Titanic (the computer game and the novel)

88. Marvin The Paranoid Android Vs. C3PO @ WWWF Grudge Match
Fan fiction featuring Marvin the Paranoid Android vs. C3PO in a battle of neurotic robots.
World Wide Web Fights Presents
The Scenario The broken-down space station bulges with junk from every corner of the galaxy. Pieces of Cylon helmets, Dalek weapons, Borg implants, RAM chips with the 'HAL 9000' designation filed off, and a million other assorted bits of rubbish trundle along on conveyer belts into the hub, where they are broken down into component elements. In one outlying cargo bay, though, two still-functional robots don't care much for that fate. "There must be a way out of here!" C-3PO says, running stiffly and frantically through the corridors. "I still can't believe Captain Solo left the station without me. It had to be a mistake, just had to be." "It wasn't with me," drones Marvin, trudging along with a clatter of gears and motors. "I know Zaphod Beeblebrox hates me. And Ford Prefect. And Trillian. And that fellow from Earth. So does everybody in the Universe, for that matter. It's all very depressing." "It's all terribly dangerous. The odds of two robots successfully escaping a spaceborne salvage plant arehold on. Why are you walking that way? What could possibly be in that direction?" "The last escape pod, on the other side of the station. There's only room for one, so I'll be all alone. I hate being alone. It's the only thing worse than being around other people. Or robots." Marvin looks back glumly. "Most of them, anyway."

What happened after the disastrous Small Dog incident, fan fiction.
[Dr. Chris Oakley's home page]
The Vl'hurgs
    It is of course well known that careless talk costs lives, but the full scale of the problem is not always appreciated. For instance, at the very moment that Arthur said, 'I seem to be having tremendous difficulty with my lifestyle,' a freak wormhole opened up in the fabric of the space-time continuum and carried his words far far back in time across almost infinite reaches of space to a distant galaxy where strange and warlike beings were poised on the brink of a frightful interstellar battle. The two opposing leaders were meeting for the last time. A dreadful silence fell across the conference table as the commander of the Vl'hurgs, resplendent in his black jewelled battle shorts, gazed levelly at the G'Gugvuntt leader squatting opposite him in a cloud of green sweet-smelling steam, and, with a million sleek and horribly beweaponed star cruisers poised to unleash electric death at his single word of command, challenged the vile creature to take back what it had said about his mother. The creature stirred in his sickly broiling vapour, and at that very moment the words, 'I seem to be having tremendous difficulty with my lifestyle' drifted across the conference table.

  • Undernet Chat Room Discussion Forum Club Personals ... Add A Link I think one who knows how to govern the empire should not do so. - Chuang Tzu. Horse's Hooves The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of flying. There is an art, it says, or rather a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. Pick a nice day, it suggests, and try it. The first part is easy. All it requires is simply the ability to throw yourself forward with all your weight, and the willingness not to mind that it's going to hurt. That is, it's going to hurt if you fail to miss the ground. Most people fail to miss the ground, and if they are really trying properly, the likelihood is that they will fail to miss it fairly hard. Clearly, it's the second point, the missing, which presents the difficulties.

The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
by Douglas Adams The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams Description:

It's safe to say that The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of the funniest science fiction novels ever written. Adams spoofs many core science fiction tropes: space travel, aliens, interstellar warstripping away all sense of wonder and repainting them as commonplace, even silly. This omnibus edition begins with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy , in which Arthur Dent is introduced to the galaxy at large when he is rescued by an alien friend seconds before Earth's destruction. Then in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe , Arthur and his new friends travel to the end of time and discover the true reason for Earth's existence. In Life, the Universe, and Everything

Douglas Adams - a science fiction writer?
1. Introduction - what is science fiction?
A definition of science fiction as to be found in a dictionary is "fiction often based on future or recent scientific discoveries, and dealing with imaginary worlds, space travel, or life on other planets." But this definition is certainly very superficial and extremely summarizing, so I would like to extend the brief explanation with some more details by famous science fiction writers and publishers. What has to be mentioned first is the complexity of science fiction and why any definition will find its enemies: "Meine Betrachtung der Science Fiction") Translation: "I presume that the fertility of the SF genre can be realized by considering that no two writers can agree on such a fundamental thing as a definition - or a limitation - and where to draw the line between Science Fiction and real fiction or between Science Fiction and Fantasy." (Asimov, "My view of Science Fiction") But some important aspects can be stated, such as: "Science fiction must involve itself with science and technology at least tangentially. It must deal with a society noticeably different from the real one of its time, and this difference must involve some change in the level of science and technology (...)" (Asimov, "Science Fiction Finds Its Voice") Therefore science fiction has to discuss the future in respect of technological and scientific change as well. Kropf explains that as SF stories provide in their settings some sort of extrapolation of science and technology and that as this altered environment conditions the terms of a conflict, it will always provide an outlook onto the future towards which we are heading. (cf. Carl R. Kropf

100. Mini Review: Salmon Of Doubt (Anders Jacobsen's Blog)
Andersja s critical remarks on the last book published in Douglas Adams name.
Anders Jacobsen's blog
... because the Internet changes your life... Main July 26, 2002 Mini review: Salmon of Doubt Mini review Salmon of Doubt (Douglas Adams) I just finished reading Douglas Adam's Salmon of Doubt on today's flight. Although I really enjoyed the Hitchiker's trilogy (of five) and the Dirk Gently series, this book was a piece of cr@p... Stay away unless you are a true TRUE hardcore Adams-fan - I obviously wasn't anywhere near being "fan enough" for this. The book's first 200 pages basically consists of various clippings from interviews, speeches and articles written by Adams but never previously published in a book. Recurring themes are "I use Mac", "I am an atheist", "I like gorillas and rhinos", "My Mac's an atheist too", "I'm working on a Hitchiker's movie (for the last 20 years)" presented over and over again in various wrappings. A few tidits, but far in between. Having finally reached the much coveted last third of the book where the final Dirk Gently novel would be, my disappointment just grew... It really is far from being finished work, with a storyline jumping around - not playfully, like in Adams' other books - but really unsystematically and in a way that clearly shows that the editor was more obsessed by selling a last book by Adams and not sparing his reputation after his unfortunate death: I used to hold him highly as an author, now I'm more reluctant to the whole thing. Sorry. Stay away...
