Don't Panic; The Official Guide to the Galaxy Companion: The Official Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Companion
Don't Panic; The Official Guide to the Galaxy Companion: The Official Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Companion | Neil Gaiman
12 posts | 14 read | 24 to read
Told in the same fanciful, irreverent style as the Hitchhiker trilogy, with scraps of scripts, letters and comments from Adams, Don't Panic is the perfect companion to one of the most successful series in publishing history.

“the Hitch-Hiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopaedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects. First, it is slightly cheaper; and secondly it has the words #DONTPANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover.”

Mehso-so

I picked up this book because I love Douglas Adams and I love Gaiman. I did not realize it was a rerelease or even that the older version of this book existed. I liked parts of it a lot. The older versions of scripts were so cool. But a lot of it was name dropping of British comedians from the 1970s which went over my head.

Saw this on the Litsy fb page & thought I'd pass the info along for any Littens who don't use facebook #LitsyDowntime #ScheduledDowntime #LitsyPSA #LitsyMaintenance

TK-421 @Scurvygirl I know! I rarely go on fb. When I do, it takes only a couple scrolls to remind me why I avoid it 1y

Neil Gaiman writing about Douglas Adams. Do I need to say more?

Life keeps intruding, preventing me from accomplishing the things I want to achieve this month. In hindsight, it was silly of me to think I'd be able to keep up with #Quotsy & all the other challenges while staying on track for #Nanowrimo! I just want to be able to spend my time reading, writing & taking pictures of books without interruption, but real life adulting stuff gets in the way. I hope to get caught up this weekend. #BookishProblems

Andrew65 Best of luck. You can do it! 2y

LibrarianJen I have those same problems! If I could just be independently wealthy then I wouldn‘t have to work and could totally just read and write and sip lattes all day. 2y

TK-421 @LibrarianJen That would be wonderful 🤑📚📝☕️ 2y
JazzFeathers Don't give up! The secret is priotizing. I'm priotising NaNoWriMo my blog and and #LotRChapterADay this month. Everything else that gets in is a welcome plus 😉 2y
TK-421 @Jazzfeathers So true! I have been trying to prioritize, but I've had things come up that I couldn't say no to: a friend being desperate for help, and friends I haven't seen for years coming to town for a visit. Also, I decided to be a #NanoRebel this year, working on revision instead of starting a new project. I find revision a more difficult process than writing a first draft. But I won't give up! Thanks for the pep talk! How's your month going? 2y
JazzFeathers I revised during NaNo for many years and yes, it is more difficult than a first draft. But l'm sure you're manage! As for me, l am writing a first draft after so many years and l had to get back into that mindset. Was more difficult than l expected but now it's going pretty fluently. I fell a bit behind recently but l hope to catch up in the weekend 2y

I woke up today feeling the need for some fun, escapist reads. I thought there might be others out there on Litsy feeling the same way. Here are my choices for some #postelectionescapism Anyone else have some recommendations?

Some of those are harder to see: top middle is Treasure Island. Under that is The Princess and the Goblin, under that, The Prestige.

vivastory I recommend Paul Tremblay's "A Head Full of Ghosts," and "Disappearance at Devil's Rock," Jeff Vandermeer's "Annihilation" and HG Wells' "Island of Doctor Moreau" 3y
acc5446 The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and the Darker Shade of Magic series by VE Schwab ❤️📚 3y
hlgreenfield These are exactly the sort of recommendations I was needing after a really though night. I'll think about my favourite books for these situations and comment again! 3y

#FunFridayPhoto : a biography you love.

A biography of Douglas Adams written by Neil Gaiman? What's not to love?

Let me answer that rhetorical question. Nothing. There is nothing not to love about that.

Ellsbeth I ❤️ this review. 3y
TrishB Wow! Christmas gift for my hubby- he loves both! 3y

Do you like Hitchhikers Guide? Do you like Neil Gaiman? Enough said. When I saw a chapter called Monty Python and Hitchhikers, I knew this book was for me.
