A bit about Douglas Adams ...

Douglas Nol Adams (March 11, 1952 May 11, 2001), also known (to fans) as Bop Ad or Bob (after his illegible signature), or by his initials "DNA", was a cult British comic radio dramatist, musician and author, most notably of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series (HHGG or H2G2). Hitchhiker's began on radio, and developed into a "trilogy" of five books (which had sold more than fifteen million copies by the time of Adams' death) as well as a television series, a computer game and a feature film that was completed only after Adams's death.
