The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams is an amazing science fiction book for people who like comedy, action, and aliens. 

The story starts with Arthur, a young man who lives in England. He awakes one day, goes through his morning routine, then goes outside and lies in the dirt. Arthur is in the middle of a battle to keep construction workers from destroying his house to make an intersection.

Ford Perfect is an actor. Or so he pretends. Ford is actually an alien. And in a few minutes the Earth will be destroyed to make an intersection. IRONIC. Arthur and Ford have been friends for 5 years and would like to save Arthur from the repulsive, disgusting, revolting Vogan ship which is about to destroy the world.

Ford beams up himself and his poor unsuspecting friend to the Vogan ship. That’s when Arthur finds out Ford is a writer for the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The Vogans find the men on the ship and release them into mid space. Read more…

“So, what’s your book about?” someone asked.

I gave him the standard answer, “Oh, it’s a typical fantasy adventure story with magic and the like.”

“That’s it? Aren’t books supposed to be more meaningful?”

I shook my head, laughed, and told him, “It is what it is.”

He frowned and looked at the back to read the blurb. Then he laughed and asked rather slyly, “Are you sure there’s nothing more to this? Just take a look at the first sentence.”

I read it again, probably for the thousandth time: “Trapped in a world of corruption and endless war, the young spellcaster Caleth Rictanson breaks all precedents by befriending the enemy and seeking to right the wrongs of his ancestors.” “Yeah?” I said.

“You’re telling me this isn’t a social commentary on the state of the world?”

House of Cash by John Carter CashJohn Carter Cash, son of the legendary Man in Black, Johnny Cash, is soon to release an interesting biography of his father, complete with inside stories only a son could share. What really caught my attention with this book is the sheer volume of personal notes, hand-written lyrics, previously unreleased photos and memorabilia that are included in House of Cash: The Legacies of My Father, Johnny Cash.
