Sixty-one years ago one of the most influential authors of the 20th century was born. I am referring, of course, to the late Douglas Adams.

Author of great works of literature such as the wildly inaccurately named Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy and several Dirk Gently novels, not to mention his contributions in the Doctor Who universe, Douglas Adams’ passed away suddenly in 2011 due to a heart attack.

Next year, Douglas Adams would have been 62, which as luck and math would have it is a significant number. I wonder if there’s going to be a special celebration.
