Douglas Adams FAQ



Frequently Asked Questions about Douglas Adams.

This FAQ about Douglas Adams was compiled and written by Nathan Hughes nhughes@umich.edu with numerous contributions by others.

This FAQ is possible only through the support of the DNA fans around the world, mostly but not limited to the readers of alt.fan.douglas-adams. Without their help, this document would be pretty skimpy indeed. I wish I could maintain the names and originators of all the information found in this document, but that is nearly impossible. So accept this global thanks to all the contributors. And special thanks to Evan Macbeth (Paradox !-) ) for keeping me on track and up to date on EVERYTHING. As usual, any info you think pertinant, interesting, enjoyable, etc. that you think deserves a spot in this FAQ, send along to nhughes@umich.edu. I love reading the mail, even if I can't include your particular piece.

Special Thanks go to Nathan Torkington for his origination of the FAQ, and his creation of much of the original text and structure for this FAQ.
