FYI: Pratchett was publishing before Adams, so Pratchett was more likely Adams's influence. Although Adams got his start writing scripts for Monty Python, and then later scripts for Doctor Who and The Hitchhiker's Guide radio series (before the novel). So Adams's style of humor might only be Monty Python influenced. :D
Very familiar with both. :)
Met Douglas at a book signing once.
Sadly never had the opportunity to meet Terry.

I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

On the last episode of Good Omens on Prime. From the opening credits the work of Douglas Adams came to mind. If you are a fan of his work, you should check this out. Sadly Adams is no longer with us, but it is nice to see some of his style pass onto other writers.

Waiting until my large flatscreen gets back from the shop before watching this one.

And sadly, Terry Pratchett, who cowrote the book, also passed several years ago. Love his Discworld series.

That is fair enough. I am not familiar with Pratchett or Gaiman, so it looks like I have some catching up to do. I have read most of Adams though with The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul being my favorite. Any book recommendations as to where I should start?
