Don't Panic: Douglas Adams & the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Its all devastatingly true — except the bits that are lies” — Douglas Adams

Upon publication, Dont Panic quickly established itself as the definitive companion to Adams and The Hitchhikers 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 Hitchhikers 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.

Synopsis:

Told in the same fanciful, irreverent style as the Hitchhiker trilogy, with scraps of scripts, letters and comments from Adams, Don't Panic is the perfect companion to one of the most successful series in publishing history.

Synopsis:

It's all devastatingly true - except the bits that are lies. - Douglas Adams

Don't Panic celebrates the life of an ape-descended human called Douglas Adams who, in a field in Innsbruck in 1971, had an idea.

This is also the story of what that idea became: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - the original radio series which started it all, and the five book trilogy', the TV series, almost-film, computer game, towel and website that followed. Acclaimed author Neil Gaiman also tells the whole story of Liff, the Universe of Dirk Gently, and everything else Douglas ever worked on.
