Mar. 11: Douglas Adams, British author


Douglas Adams (1952-2001) was an English author, screenwriter, essayist, satirist, and playwright. Best known for his five book trilogy The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (first heard as a BBC radio comedy, and later adapted to a TV series, several stage plays, comics books, a video game, and a feature film), he wrote in several media. He also wrote two books starring Dirk Gently, the "holistic detective," along with scripts for Dr. Who and sketches for Monty Python. Sadly, he died at age 49 after resting from his regular workout at a private gym. The irony would not have been lost on him.
