What a wonderulf list! How sad that we had to lose such a great talent at such a young age! I think there's another book though--something like "Starship Titanic," if I'm not mistaken. I haven't been able to find a copy so maybe I'm wrong on that one.

Yes but that was based on an idea by DA but written by Terry Jones.

I didn't know that. I just finished poking around a little bit and found another confusing reference to it. It seems that there's another out of print version of the same title and Adam's same idea, but it was written by Robert Sheckley.

Douglas Adams was nearly one of a kind. The only writer to pick up his mantle so far is Christopher Moore. Adams was brilliant

I don´t know Moore, better check him out.

My favorite Moore books are THE LUST LIZARD OF MELANCHOLY COVE, THE STUPIDEST ANGEL and LAMB. It's good stuff

Nice!  I didn't know there were so many variations of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  We've got plenty of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fans on Lunch! :)
