douglas adams is another guy i think had posters' brain. the hitchhiker's guide books are pure post, front to back

@CyclopsCaveman there are stories of him handing script to actors while they were doing the radio show live. Spot check me for accuracy, but the guy had SERIOUS deadline issues. Stuff definitely popped out post style.

@sleepychris @CyclopsCaveman one of his agents had to lock him in a hotel room to finish one of the books and then just returned when it was due and took whatever was done to be published - if he'd lived long enough to see twitter he would've never finished another book in his life

@wolfie @sleepychris @CyclopsCaveman also why he loved adaptations, it meant he could take another pass to add and remove sections


@robotcarsley @sleepychris @CyclopsCaveman haha yep, no version is ever quite the same (which is why the radio plays done after his death just feel like audio books cos they just adaptated them faithfully rather than what he would have done)
