Adams is the creator of all the various contradictory manifestations
of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," which include a radio
series, a TV series, a stage play, record albums, a computer game,
a series of internationally best-selling books, a set of graphic
novels and, apotheotically, a bath towel. The "Hitchhiker" movie
is in the works; visit the website to read about the latest developments.
In a long and varied career, Douglas has also written the Dirk Gently
novel series, a nonfiction book on endangered species (Last Chance
to See), worked as a chicken shed cleaner, a bodyguard for an Arab
royal family and played guitar for Pink Floyd. Douglas is a founding
partner and the Chief Fantasist of The Digital Village, a new online
and multiple media entertainment company. The Village’s first release,
"Starship Titanic" is an interactive graphics masterpiece, winning
the 1999 Codie Award for Best New Adventure/Role-Playing Software
