Don't panic

Bookslut features a review of Neil Gaiman's biography of Don’t Panic: Douglas Adams and the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

It feels as if you casually ran into Neil Gaiman at a pub, bought a round, and giggle like a fangirl over the behind-the-scenes book legends of The Hitchhiker’s Guide. . .

Don’t Panic is a book about the life of an idea, not the life of an author. Gaiman follows the career of Douglas Adams in relationship to the Hitchhiker phenomena, rather than focusing on Adam’s personal life.

Sounds like fun. Sadly, not available in paperback in time to enjoy on my upcoming train trip.
