    Exciting or disappointment
    While this is kind of exciting, because I would like to see what Adams was up to, I’m also afraid it will be a disappointment to fans since it obviously wasn’t ready for publishing. Why not just leave it alone, and let us remember him for the excellent writing he published before he passed.

      While this is kind of exciting, because I would like to
      see what Adams was up to, I’m also afraid it will be a
      disappointment to fans since it obviously wasn’t ready for
      publishing. Why not just leave it alone, and let us
      remember him for the excellent writing he published before
      he passed.

      As long as fans don’t get too excited, this should be
      fine. It may be unpolished, but it’s bound to be funny.
      Hell, I though “The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy”
      was teh funniest book ever written until I read the Dirk
      Gently novels. Even if it’s up to par with “Mostly
      Harmless,” it’ll be great. I suspect my biggest
      disappointment will come from the holes left unwritten,
      rather than the actual quality of what was written.

      Of course, it would help if any of his notes would be made
      available too, so the reader can see which aspects he
      wasn’t satisfied with, and why.

    This is the same mistake made on /. don’t you guys check things before posting them…heck, it’s even spelled correctly in the body of the item.

      Ancient Persian rugmakers always intentionally made a mistake in their rugs, believing perfection to be the exclusive province of God. We are simply following in their footsteps. :-)
