Science fiction writer Douglas Adams died Friday of a heart attack while working out in Santa Barbara, California. Adams was best known for his novels, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish and Life, The Universe and Everything.

Adams was currently involved in a movie project for The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, as well as a computer based video game based on his "hitchhikers" mythology.

Posts in the message boards aptly sum up the loss Adams' fans are experiencing upon hearing of his death,
