Douglas Adams created all the various and contradictory manifestations of <i><b>The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy</b></i>: radio, novels, TV, computer game, stage adaptations, comic book and bath towel. He lectured and broadcast around the world and was a patron of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and Save the Rhino International. Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge, UK and lived with his wife and daughter in Islington, London, before moving to Santa Barbara, California, where he died suddenly in 2001.

In addition to <i><b>Hitchhiker</b></i>, he is the author of the <b>Dirk Gently</b> novels: <i><b>Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency</b>, <b>The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul</b></i> and the unfinished <i><b>The Salmon of Doubt</b>.</i> Douglas Adams's mega-selling cult classic. A special edition of <i>The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy </i>by Douglas Adams reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan’s 70th anniversary.

It's an ordinary Thursday morning for Arthur Dent until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly afterwards to make way for a new hyperspace bypass and his best friend has just announced that he's an alien. At this moment, they're hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and an innocuous-looking book inscribed in large, friendly letters with the words: DON'T PANIC.

An international phenomenon and a pop-culture classic, <i>The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy </i>has been a radio show, TV series, stage play, comic book and film, and is a work of true comic genius. It was the first Pan Original to sell more than one million copies.
