I miss Douglas Adams as well. I will miss Terry Pratchett when he is gone. (Though still writing he has announced he is in the early stages of Alzheimer's) I find the Discworld books just as funny as Hitchhiker's guide et. al.
12 Years??!! Wow...a much-missed mind...can't believe it has been that long...
Gone 12 years today.
Looks like Adams is one of the few "Science Fiction" icons not fawned over around here.
Oh, I wouldn't say that. He probably doesn't get discussed here as much because he's largely known for written works and discussion here principally revolves around visual ones (movies and TV shows - with which he was certainly also involved of course, but still), and also because he's been dead and hence rather inactive for more than a decade. But he definitely has passionate fans here, I can assure you.
