It’s been 20 years since the original Towel Day, in memory of the late great Douglas Adams.
In 2009 I hosted Blawg Review #213 in memory of Douglas on Towel Day.
This year, I wish all you hoopy froods a happy and healthy Towel Day.
It’s on days like this I miss Douglas Adams as well as Ed, the editor of Blawg Review. Both taken from us before their times. Both were hoopy froods.

Arrakis. Dune. Desert planet… Welcome to Blawg Review #256! In 1965, the best selling science fiction book of all time, Frank Herbert’s Dune, was first published. Parts of it had been published in serial form in a magazine in 1964, but as near as I have been able to determine the first publication was in… Continue Reading
