Happy Birthday Douglas Adams!

Happy Birthday to you.

Happy Birthday to you.

Happy Birthday dear Douglas Adams

Happy Birthday to YOU!


On this day in 1952 Douglas Adams was born. Douglas Adams was an English author, scriptwriter, essayist, humorist, satirist and dramatist. Adams worked on Doctor Who as a writer and script editor. His most famous work is The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy started as a science fiction comedy radio show, which was eventually turned into a trilogy of five books. He also wrote the Dirk Gently series. Adams sadly died of a heart attack at the age of 49 in 2001.

I have read The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy many times and it is an old favourite of mine, last year I bought the trilogy for my nephew and he is also a convert. Adams was a true genius combining science fiction and comedy that many people have fallen in love with over the years. I hope I continue to enjoy his work for many years to come and i hope to read the Dirk Gently series soon.

“So long and thanks for all the fish!”
