Does Canon Matter? Part 8 – The Works of Douglas Adams

Believe it or not, I’m finally wrapping up my series on canon!

In this last entry, I talk about my favorite author, Douglas Adams and discuss the continuity between various versions of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I also discuss the Dirk Gently series, the computer games Adams worked on and his nonfiction work. I ramble a bit about the work others have done to adapt or continue Adams’ stories as well. And I wrap things up by trying to directly address the question I’ve been asking for a ridiculously long time, now: Does Canon Matter?

This was a good topic to end on, because I could have gone on forever, and there’s plenty I didn’t get to (for example, I ended up not saying anything about the Hitchhiker’s comic book adaptation or the Last Chance to See TV series Stephen Fry worked on). There’s an ocean of material out there if you go looking for it, so I encourage folks to check it all out. 🙂
