Have you read any of Terry Pratchett's books? Try starting with The Colour of Magic, and if you like that then you've got like 30 other novels to read by him.

Other authors I like - Iain M Banks, Alastair Reynolds, Peter F Hamilton, Aldous Huxley, Neal Stephenson. That should last you a while.  :smiley:

Yes and no.  I only classify DA material in the HHGTTG cannon

Why is that? The original draft by DA was given by his wife to EC to complete part 6 of the trilogy.

But it is Not DA and no matter how you try to dress it it just dosen't feel the same.  I presume people who read Fleming while he was alive may same the same about the 007 books that seem to be rolled out every so often.

IMO HHGTTG is:

1) Radio Series
2) Books
3) Tv serie 
4) Film

I'm glad you asked me twice. You see I'm a bilingual,  a bilingual illiterate.  I can't read in two languages. - Joss Ackland
