Author Information

Douglas Adams (Author) Douglas Noel Adams was born on 11 March 1952 in Cambridge. On leaving school, he won a scholarship to study English at Cambridge, where he joined the Footlights and later set up his own successful revue group, Adams-Smith-Adams. In 1977 Douglas met BBC Radio 4 producer Simon Brett, who felt that Douglas' style of humour should have its own show. Having been inspired by a copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to Europe, Douglas came up with a draft for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The worldwide phenomenon spawned by the radio series includes five novels, a book of scripts, two LPs, a television series, a computer game and two stage plays. In addition to Hitchhiker's, Douglas' work included two Dirk Gently detective novels and two humorous place-name 'dictionaries', The Meaning of Liff and The Deeper Meaning of Liff (both co-written with John Lloyd) as well as Last Chance to See, an account of a global search for rare and endangered species which he co-wrote with Mark Carwardine. His last series for Radio 4 was The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Future, a look at the advances mankind was likely to make in future years. He died suddenly of a heart attack, aged 49, in May 2001. A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy feature film was produced in 2005, whilst both Stephen Mangan and Samuel Barnett have portrayed Dirk Gently on television in recent years.
