A classic of comedy and science fiction, the series has stood the test of time and been enjoyed by several generations now.

Book of the Week
A quick break for the book of the week, so mix yourself a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster and check out “Don’t Panic: Douglas Adams & The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Neil Gaiman.
In Don’t Panic, Gaiman celebrates everything Hitchhiker: the original radio play, the books, comics, video and computer games, films, television series, record albums, stage musicals, one-man shows, the Great One himself, and towels. And as Douglas Adams himself attested: “It’s all absolutely devastatingly true—except the bits that are lies.”
You can find this, or any other book of the week at dorkygeekynerdy.com/book. Finish that drink and let’s go.
