One of the words that most accurately describes Douglas Adams’ works is "timeless". In his lecture on "Immortality and Douglas Adams", Neil Gaiman will speak about the enduring nature of Adams’ vision and imagination, the impact of the internet and eBooks on storytelling as a whole, and why stories can sometimes outlive us all.
