Completist Gaiman bibliophiles may be interested to know that my book Hitchhiker: A Biography of Douglas Adams has just been published in its US hardback edition by Justin, Charles & Co of Boston, with a new foreword very kindly written for me by Neil Gaiman. (The UK edition has a foreword by John Lloyd.)
This comes at pretty much the same time as Titan Books’ new US hardback of Don’t Panic: Neil’s 1988 book with the four additional chapters that David K Dickson wrote in 1993 and the four that I wrote last year when this edition was published in UK paperback. (The US edition has a short new intro by Neil which the UK one doesn’t have.)
This of course creates the extraordinary situation of two near-simultaneous biographies of the same person, one written by Neil Gaiman but with some pages by MJ Simpson, and one written by MJ Simpson with some pages by Neil Gaiman!
