    It s really amazing the amounts of nostalgia that can build up in a person s system before it kinda explodes into a kind of reverse word soup full of interviews, introductions, epilogues, and snippets of novels we wish we had but they were never penned because the author up and died on us.I m writing of Douglas Adams, of course I almost didn t re read this one because I remember it WAS mostly just magazine articles and interesting early computer tech stuff...

    What a delight to revisit the mind of Douglas Adams I like that this is a collection of emails, speeches, one liners, and rants Yes, there s the start of a novel in there, that he may or may not have intended to call the Salmon of Doubt The result is so much better than it sounds like it s going to be Douglas Adams died, but his buddy knew his password and emptied his Mac onto a CD, the various unfinished writings were lightly edited and printed as this But gosh, am I ever glad that they di What a delight to revisit the mind of Douglas Adams I like that this is a collection of emails, speeches, one liners, and rants Yes, there s the start of a novel in there, that he may or may not have intended to call the Salmon of Doubt The result is so much better than it sounds like it s going to be Douglas Adams died, but his buddy knew his password and emptied his Mac onto a CD, the various unfin...
