    Oh man, that's really a pity. I just loved his books, especially "Last chance to see". Well, I still love them.

    I.m trying to think of a witty farwell line, but, frankly, I'm at a loss. So...Ciao, Adious, Aloha. I guess we never will know the true Meaning of Liff.

    Of course, Eisen himself (aka Jason Bernard) passed away in late 1996. Sigh. :(

    It's not part of the Hitchhikers series. Its a real story about him and Mark Carwardine (a guy that is great at zoology) visiting some animals that are about to get extinct (well, the book is from 1990). It's awesome, it's so funny because it's real and yet it's about a serious topic. I really recommend it.
