PLANET MAGRATHEA - MJ Simpson's site closed

Sad to report that MJ Simpson's Planet Magrathea, THE Hitchhikers news site, has now closed.

Simpson posted a somewhat negative review of the upcoming Hitchhikers movie last week, and this has created something of a firestorm in the Douglas Adams community. In light of these events, he has decided to call it a day and not write about Douglas Adams any more. Much of the criticism he has received (some of it being of a very personal nature) has been unwarranted, and I think he has made the right decision in stepping away.

I would like to personally thank him for encouraging me to start Another Chance To See, and I wish him well in his future career and projects.

Thanks Mike.
