Don't Panic! And Another thing!

It has been about 10 years since I read "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to The Galaxy" and for some reason that I cannot remember I stopped there and never read the rest of the series.

With the release of the new book in the Hitch Hikers novels, and a new biography about the man who gave us Marvin the Depressed Robot, I figured it was time for a reread of "Douglas Adams The Hitchhiker Trilogy".

So last night about 2 chapters into the book, I stopped and curiously enough the only thing that goes through my mind is Oh no, not again!

Don't Panic: Douglas Adams & The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Paperback)
Neil Gaiman David K Dickson M J Simpson

Book Description

“It’s all devastatingly true — except the bits that are lies” — Douglas Adams

Upon publication, Don’t Panic quickly established itself as the definitive companion to Adams and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This edition comes up to date, covering the movie, And Another Thing by Eoin Colfer and the build up to the 30th anniversary of the first novel.

Acclaimed author Neil Gaiman celebrates the life and work of Douglas Adams who, in a field in Innsbruck in 1971, had an idea that became The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The radio series that started it all, the five — soon to be six — book ‘trilogy’, the TV series, almost-film and actual film, and everything in between.
