Hello my fellow Megadodo staff!
I'm a few days late but, well, time is a construct and all that - anyway on 8th March we celebrated 42 years of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy which first aired on that day in 1978!
Pan Macmillan has reprinted the scripts and novels in colourful new 42nd anniversary editions, the British Library hosted a bunch of events, and BBC Radio 4 aired the original episodes - it's wonderful to know that Hitchhiker's still has such an enduring fanbase and isn't going away anytime soon!
BBC Radio 4 extra had a great one hour special to celebrate the 42nd anniversary which might interest you - it's all about other sci-fi podcasts, with Rachel Wheeley from The Strange Case of Starship Iris which is a podcast I'd recommend…Read more >

Hey all, hope your winter is going well and happy holidays to all celebrating something this time of year!
Just wanted to thank everyone who has helped out on the Wiki this year, and I'm not going anywhere soon - I'll be joining you all in this new year (and new decade!) and still trying to keep the Hitchhiker's Wiki in tip top condition!

I just realised it's been a year since I adopted this Wiki - how time flies when you're on a planet with a 365 day year, give or take a leap year!
It's interesting to look back and compare the Wiki to how it was a year ago, it was like a packet of biscuits left forgotten in the back of a mouldy cupboard, but now look at it! We get people updating each week, the logo now makes it clear that this isn't a Wiki about general hitchhiking and backpacking, and our main characters have information on their pages!

A big thanks to everyone who has contributed and left their footprint on this moon of…Read more >
Hello all! Happy Towel Day to you!
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been a part of this Hitchhikers Wiki community over the past few months and made it the great place it is today! It's so good to know that we are growing this community of Hitchhikers fans by the day!
Here's to you all! Hope you have a great Towel Day! I'm going to go and watch the tv series and be sure to keep my towel with me at all time. Catch you later, hoopy froods!
