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!”
