Tomorrow I Turn 42

Yes, tomorrow I turn 42. Which, in case you did not know, is the answer to “Life, the Universe and Everything.” And this, in case you were unaware, is one of my all time favorite books. I loved Douglas Adams’ fiction the same way I love pie; with an unhealthy, gluttonous fervor that plays in the borderlands of insane mania. There lies a true poet of our times. He made us laugh, he made us cry, he made us crave perfectly normal. Without trying he described the fundamental nature of our generation. He gave us the Salmon of Doubt.

In celebration of my 42nd birthday I plan on reading through the whole of his compendium. So long and thanks for all the fish.

    • Wow, that’s a really interesting look at genre fiction. Thanks for including me Andrew. My love for Adams started when I was a kid and the global market wasn’t nearly so broadly distributed. I had to wait nearly a year to get my first copy of Hitchhiker’s, but it was worth the wait.
