Throwback Thursday - Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

This week pick is honor my new favorite TV Show that is currently running on BBC America.  Which oddly enough makes the above GIF highly appropriate as well.  There is very little that Douglas Adams touches that I won't at least pick up once.  He has never disappointed me.  We'll see how this show goes.  So far I'm loving the guy playing Dirk. 

Publishing Date: May 1987
Genre: Sci-Fi
Series: Dirk Gently #1

What do a dead cat, a computer whiz-kid, an Electric Monk who believes the world is pink, quantum mechanics, a Chronologist over 200 years old, Samuel Taylor Coleridge (poet), and pizza have in common? Apparently not much; until Dirk Gently, self-styled private investigator, sets out to prove the fundamental interconnectedness of all things by solving a mysterious murder, assisting a mysterious professor, unravelling a mysterious mystery, and eating a lot of pizza – not to mention saving the entire human race from extinction along the way (at no extra charge).

Douglas Adams is best known for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but he's done so much more.  The Dirk Gently Series is a crazy ride and has now inspired a new TV Show on BBC America.  His books are hilarious and I always know I'll have a good run with them.

So what's some of you guy's favorite Sci-Fi books?
