Is it the end? With Douglas Adams the reader is always up in the air.

This book is a sequel to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy the founder of the feast sequel books, the enormously successful BBC Radio series, a BBC television series shown in the US on HBO a stage play, a record even a bath towel..

Douglas Adams was a prolific writer in many media but he began as a chicken shed cleaner, a bodyguard for an Arab royal family and a guitarist for the rock band Pink Floyd.

Upon his death at age 49 in 2001, the BBC News wrote that Douglas Adams was also an internet pioneer. He believed something powerful was created when people pooled experiences and information and the internet offered a unique opportunity to do just that. He said part of the internet's extraordinary power was the fact that it evolved as an organic entity, a bottom-up design rather than being hierarchically controlled from above.
