The author of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books is Douglas Adams. He just died of a heart attack at the age of 49. He was going to write a screen play for the upcoming movies based on his books, but no he is not. Any fans in here?

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is without doubt the funniest book i've ever read.

I read the books and liked them. I also think that he was a great author.

Its a brilliant set of books, and they always give me a laugh. There is going to be a movie made apparently, with Tim from The Office (UK comedy) as Arthur Dent. Lookin' forward to it.

he's been dead for nearly 3 years....

But yeah, I loved HHGTTG too, only Terry Pratchett is capable of matching Adam's level of humour and subtlety, and I don't think even he manages it fully.
