9. Don't Panic: Douglas Adams & The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Author: by Neil Gaiman
October 30, 2018
The #1 New York Timesbestselling author’s hilarious …Idiosyncratic … Delightful and definitive companion to a global phenomenon (Publishers Weekly). Douglas Adams’s six-part trilogy, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy grew from a blip of a notion into an ever-expanding multimedia universe that amassed an unprecedented cult of followers and became an international sensation.
As a young journalist, Neil Gaiman was given complete access to Adams’s life, times, gossip, unpublished outtakes, and files (and became privy to his writing process, insecurities, disillusionments, challenges, and triumphs). The resulting volume illuminates the unique, funny, dramatic, and improbable chronicle of an idea, an incredibly tall man, and a mind-boggling success story.
In Don’t Panic, Gaiman celebrates everything Hitchhiker: the original radio play, the books, comics, video and computer games, films, television series, record albums, stage musicals, one-man shows, the Great One himself, and towels. And as Douglas Adams himself attested: It’s all absolutely devastatingly trueexcept the bits that are lies.
