Douglas Adams, creator of The Hitchhiker's Guide, Last Chance to See, Starship: Titanic, The Meaning of Liff and The Dirk Gently Series passed away suddenly of a heart attack while working out in a gym. He was 49. He is survived by his wife of ten years, and their six-year-old daughter.
Mr. Adams, whereever you may be... Thank you. You have been the greatest inspiration to me and my writing.
