Adams is best known as the author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which originated in 1978 as a BBC radio comedy before developing into a bestselling "trilogy" of five books, several spinoffs, and in 2005 became a feature film.
Adams also wrote Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (1987) and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (1988), and co-wrote The Meaning of Liff (1983), The Deeper Meaning of Liff (1990), Last Chance to See (1990), and stories for the television series Doctor Who. A posthumous collection of his works was published as The Salmon of Doubt in 2002.
