And then because of the success of that damn book, suddenly I have to do another book, and another book and another book. I'm not somebody who's set out to be a novelist per se. It just happened to be the clearest success I've had. I didn't want to be trapped into just sitting in a room typing. It's not the life I have envisaged for myself--sitting in a room typing for year after year. I kind of wanted to do something that would be...I'd get to work with a lot people, have a lot of fun, have a lot of meetings, have lots of brainstorming, lots of clever people around. I've also a chance to get a lot of toys. So that's what this was. It was a kind of mid-life crisis project.

Anyone who confuses the story of a spaceship careening through space with the sinking of a ship in 1912 is probably very, very dumb. Not that I mind selling the game to very, very dumb people. Their money is as good as anyone else's.

"Are you telling me," he said, "that you set yourself up to become President of the Galaxy just to steal that ship?"
"That's it," said Zaphod with the sort of grin that would get most people locked away in a room with soft walls.

One of the problems of taking things apart and seeing how they work--supposing you're trying to find out how a cat works--you take that cat apart to see how it works, what you've got in your hands is a non-working cat. The cat wasn't a sort of clunky mechanism that was susceptible to our available tools of analysis.

There's a scene in which Trillian can't understand why Zaphod seems on the one hand quite bright and on the other appallingly dumb. That was a bit of self-portraiture. I sometimes strike myself as being quite a clever guy, and sometimes cannot imagine how I can be so slow-witted and stupid, so dull and brainless. I can't understand why I should be able to write something which everybody thinks is terribly clever, and at the same time be personally so dumb. I think I'm schizophrenic.
