The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has been made into a book, a radio play, a television series and a movie or two. It was written by the staggeringly gifted Douglas Adams and has become one of the most oft-quoted works of literature outside of Shakespeare. I’ve been meeting a lot of people recently who either haven’t read the book or who haven’t even heard about it, which is just appalling.
So today on Douglas Adams’ 61st birthday I decided to join with Google and show Adams some love by featuring The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy here on Silodrome, if you haven’t read it I implore you to grab a copy, if you have read it you’ll be just now realising that it’s time to read it again.
Articles that Ben has written have been covered on CNN, Popular Mechanics, Smithsonian Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, the official Pinterest blog, the official eBay Motors blog, BuzzFeed, Autoweek Magazine, Wired Magazine, Autoblog, Gear Patrol, Jalopnik, The Verge, and many more.
Silodrome was founded by Ben back in 2010, in the years since the site has grown to become a world leader in the alternative and vintage motoring sector, with well over a million monthly readers from around the world and many hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
