Re: Charting the Novel-verse
There is an SCE story built around very Adams-esque improbability physics. I can't recall the name.
Sargasso Sector ?
Featuring the starship Minstrel's Whisper
from the ancient Khnndak Empire (and "Sargasso Sector" even references Adams in dialogue).
"Did you know that there is a million bucks hidden in the house next door?"
"But there is no house next door."
"No? Then let's go build one!"
