America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Douglas Adams

Hitchhiker's, as it is simply known to its fans, is a sci-fi comedy classic.

Douglas Adams has such delightful turns of thought, that one can forgive his complete bastardization of the word trilogy. Whether one forgives him or not is probably of no matter to Douglas Adams himself, as he has now booked a permanent table at the restaurant at the end of the universe, at which we will all one day find ourselves.
