Volume 1, Issue 2


In his wildly popular sci fi account chronicling the end of the world, Douglas Adams imagines a guidebook to the universe that is so massive it only exists in electronic form, you swipe a screen to access anything you want to know about the entire galaxy. This was 1978, you guys. We had vinyl and 8-track tapes. Lesser men have been called "Prophet." Respect.

On the cover, in "large friendly letters," the guide said, "DON'T PANIC." In the guide, along with proving that God does not exist are other helpful tips such as how to hitch a ride on a passing star ship and where to get laid while planet hopping. Also, Douglas Adams has something to say on the topic of dolphins.

“Curiously enough, the dolphins had long known of the impending destruction of the planet Earth and had made many attempts to alert mankind to the danger; but most of their communications were misinterpreted as amusing attempts to punch footballs or whistle for titbits, so they eventually gave up and left the Earth by their own means shortly before the Vogons arrived.

The last ever dolphin message was misinterpreted as a surprisingly sophisticated attempt to do a double-backwards-somersault through a hoop whilst whistling the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’, but in fact the message was this: So Long, and thanks for all the fish.”
