My Green Towel
Today I'll be taking around my green towel in remembrance of Douglas Adams who died in 2001. He was far and away my favourite writer of fiction (and still is), who had a deep understanding of science and comedy, using the former as the plot device for the latter. I've read his Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series twice (the first book 3 times), as well as every book other than Last Chance to See. (Don't worry, it's on the list.) Milan has a nice tribute to the man, and you can listen to a sound clip about towels from the radio show. See also Darren and other froods who know where their towels are.
