Douglas Adams possessed one of the 20thC's great imaginations.He was clever, funny, prescient, child-like and - to the dismay of some contemporaries - a polymath who combined intellect with a sense of wonder.'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' was both intimate and cosmic, bleak and funny, frivolous yet philosophical.In 1978 it sneaked out on BBC radio, but news of it cascaded through the public by word of mouth.Soon it reappeared in many incarnations, including a towel. Douglas Adam's books went on to sell 17 million copies.He created his own world which cast a sideways light on the one we inhabit; it never looked the same again. Nick Webb's friendship with Douglas Adams began with the first novel (commissioned when editor at Pan Books), and grew through ashared interest in science.His definitive portrait has been drawn up with the help of family and mutual friends, many of whom have spoken with the frankness of people who for years have also known the author.The result is a privileged vantage point from which to share a revealing and affectionate view of an astonishing man.

Fifteen billion years from now, Earth is a bizarre and dying planet, teeming in its last moments with an infinity of life forms - from the descendants of humanity to intelligent, mobile plants and colonies of viruses that sail the skies in the form of ghastly ships.Its skies darkened by the ashes of burned-out galaxies, its molten core long cooled, the Earth is threatened by the instability of the very fabric of space-time. But young Deyv of the Turtle Tribe knew nothing of his world's history or its fate, and lived only to track down the wretched Yawtl who had stolen his Soul Egg.Joined by Vana, a girl from another tribe, and the plant-man Sloosh, both victims of the thief, he trailed the Yawtl across a nightmare landscape of monster-haunted jungle and wetland, even taking to the air in the dreadful vessel of the viral tharakorm. The search for the Soul Eggs led only to deeper peril - first to the lair of Feersh the Blind, the witch who had ordered the thefts; then to the Bright Abomination, the jewelled wasteland that harboured the Shemibob, the ageless being from another star who knew Earth's end was near. . . . . and held the key to the only way for any to escape that end. . . . Not even in his award-winning 'Riverworld Series' has Philip Jose Farmer created such a strikingly varied cast of characters for an epic adventure as he has in 'Dark is the Sun'.

Before she could close the canopy behind her, the sky above her head erupted in a flight of rainbows, spinning rather than flying.Round rainbows that sang a liquid lovely welcome.The lady Caissa, heir of the Ambassador of the Federated Sentient Planets to the world of Demeathorn, had grown up knowing that she owed her sire obedience and unconditional loyalty.She expected to do her duty, even to the extent of entering into a marriage alliance she did not understand with a man she despised.Lady Caissa, beautiful, rich and well-educated, had never learned the great secret of Demeathorn, although she was about to be caught in its unraveling. In the aftermath of a disastrous negotiation she fled northward by airship toward intedicted territory; a distress signal from deep within the forbidden zone drew her to a rocky island off the coast.And there she encountered a man alone:intense, handsome, and severely injured in the crash of his antique flyer.She did not know it, but she had just set in motion events which would determine the fate of her father and her planet, and her own happiness for the rest of her life.
