My May Scide Splitters just happened to fall on Towel Day, so I broke down and read The Salmon of Doubt for the review (some years back I mentioned that I was saving The Salmon of Doubt, not wanting there to be no more new Adams for me to read).  It took 14 years from Long Dark Tea-Time to The Salmon of Doubt, and other 14 years before I read Salmon.   And my post happened to be scheduled for Towel Day.  Any to bring all manor of coincidence together for the occasion, my water heater stopped working as I wrote the review (3 years ago, the water heater broke as I was trying to write a Towel Day blog for Amazing Stories).  It's all very interconnected, as Dirk would say.  Anyway, here is the review:
