(I once emailed Adams asking when a paperback edition of this book would be made available; he replied three years later, saying that it was finally in print behind "the ugliest cover I've ever seen in my life." The contemporary cover is not quite so bad.)
Fondly remember meeting him briefly at the big bookstore near ULU in London to sign it when it was released.
Sometimes I regret I gave it to my then-girlfried ;)
