I absolutely love Neil Gaiman's blog and I've been reading it a lot the last couple of days. This is an introduction he did for a biography on Douglas Adams that really touched me. Hitchhiker'sreally is becoming a classic and I enjoyed learning about Adams through Gaiman's eyes. I was visiting the Book and Read Forums today and read a thread about influential sci-fi novels. Adams was mentioned several times and it made me realize that his Hitchhikers books are making history.
