Douglas Noël Adams was an English author, comic radio dramatist, and musician. He is best known as the author of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. Hitchhiker's began on radio and developed into a "trilogy" of five books as well as a television series, a comic book series, a computer game, and a feature film that was completed after Adams' death. In Life, the Universe and Everything, Arthur Dent is living in a cave on prehistoric Earth having been sent back in time at the end of the previous book in the series. He lives alone and is almost crazy when his former travelling companion, Ford Prefect, who has been living on another part of the planet, appears suddenly. The two of them are whisked through time and space to a future Earth, where they suddenly materialize on a velvet paisley couch in the middle of a cricket match in England just days before the Earth is to be destroyed. The match is interrupted when a spaceship full of white-clad robots arrives, steals the cricket trophy that has just been won by England, and begins killing everyone. A figure named Slartibartfast, who commands a spaceship that resembles an Italian bistro, rescues Arthur and Ford. A strange form of mathematics based on the complex science of eating at a restaurant and dividing the bill, powers the spaceship.
