Born in Cambridge in 1952, Douglas Adams is the beloved creator of "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" and its various incarnations as books, audio progams, radio plays, and most recently a movie. Hitchhiker's phenomenal, award-winning success led to a series of sequels, most of which having been adapted successfully into other mediums in their own right. Known for his incisive wit, and a particularly absurdist sense of humor, Adams has culled a massive audience of devoted followers over the years.
Unforunately Adams passed away in 2001, but his fanbase and their devotion has only grown since then, and shows no sign of ending anytime soon.
