Description


Arthur Dent is out of his bathrobe, in love, and wondering why the dolphins said So Long and Thanks for All the Fish. Was the earth really demolished? Why did all the dolphins disappear? What is God's final message to His creatures? Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, and the new voivoid gang are off (by commercial airline) on a wacked-out quest to answer these truly unimportant questions. This book is a sequel to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy--the "founder of the feast"--sequel books, the enormously successful BBC Radio series, a BBC television series shown in the US on HBO a stage play, a record--even a bath towel. RosettaBooks also publishes three other titles in the series--The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Galaxy, and Life, the Universe and Everything. Douglas Adams was a prolific writer in many media--but he began as a chicken shed cleaner, a bodyguard for an Arab royal family and a guitarist for the rock band Pink Floyd. Upon his death at age 49 in 2001, the BBC News wrote that Douglas Adams was also an internet pioneer. He believed something powerful was created when people pooled experiences and information and the internet offered a unique opportunity to do just that. He said part of the internet's extraordinary power was the fact that it "evolved as an organic entity, a bottom-up design rather than being hierarchically controlled from above.
