Douglas Adams

From the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Tenth Intergalactic Edition:

"Douglas Adams is a humanoid writer from Earth, responsible for popularizing the Hitchhiker's Guide on that bygone backward planet. Before he was theoretically destroyed with the rest of his homeworld by the Vogon space fleet, Adams composed a detailed and theoretically humorous five-book trilogy on the space travels of one Arthur Dent. Not one to miss a chance at libel, Adams also penned sketches of such luminaries as Zaphod Breeblebrox, Ford Prefect, Tricia "Trillian" MacMillian, and Marvin the Paranoid Android. Aside from these tales, he is responsible for some travelogues, detective stories, and text-based computer adventures.

Although he is presumed expired by the people of his (mostly) harmless home planet, recent reports indicate that he has in fact been getting gloriously inebriated at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe for several millennia now, not to mention striking up conversation with the food."

'Nuff said.

To the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
