It’s true that you can find just about anything on eBay, and books penned and signed by Douglas Adams are no exception. Is it a coincidence that the “Douglas” part of his signature looks a lot like “hoopy?” Of course there are copies of all five books of the Hitchhiker’s trilogy (I know, I know), but also some Dirk Gently stuff and even his Last Chance to See (which you should see) adventures that document when he went out into remote areas to have a peek at critically endangered species before projected extinction.
If anyone could put a smile on such a bleak premise, it was Douglas Adams (though Stephen Fry, who continued with an updated version of the series, is another such rare talent).
Even if you’re not in a buying mood, it’s fun to take a browse through Douglas Adams books signed by the author. It’s like window shopping in a manner completely appropriate to Towel Week.
