Description

A phenomenon across all formats, this paperback omnibus contains the complete Hitchhikers Guide trilogy in five parts, charting the whole of Arthur Dents odyssey through space and time. Share and enjoy.

Collected together in this omnibus are the five titles that comprise Douglas Adams wildly popular and wholly remarkable comedy science fiction trilogy, plus a bonus short story, Young Zaphod Plays It Safe, and a special undeleted scene . . .

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be rather a lot to cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun. The Galaxy may offer a mind-boggling variety of ways to be blown up and/or insulted, but its very hard to get a cup of tea.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

When all questions of space, time, matter and the nature of being have been resolved, only one question remains - Where shall we have dinner? The Restaurant at the End of the Universe provides the ultimate gastronomic experience, and for once there is no morning after to worry about.

Life, the Universe and Everything

Following a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent is surprised to find himself living in a hideously miserable cave on prehistoric Earth. However, just as he thinks that things cannot get possibly worse, they suddenly do. An eddy in the space-time continuum lands him, Ford Prefect, and their flying sofa in the middle of the cricket ground at Lords, just two days before the world is due to be destroyed by the Vogons. Escaping the end of the world for a second time, Arthur, Ford, and their old friend Slartibartfast embark (reluctantly) on a mission to save the whole galaxy from fanatical robots. Not bad for a man in his dressing gown.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

There is a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. Its not an easy thing to do, and Arthur Dent thinks hes the only human whos been able to master this nifty little trick - until he meets Fenchurch, the woman of his dreams. Fenchurch once realised how the world could be made a good and happy place. Unfortunately, shes forgotten. Convinced that the secret lies within Gods Final Message to His Creation, they go in search of it. And, in a dramatic break with tradition, actually find it . . .

Mostly Harmless

Arthur Dent has settled down on the small planet Lamuella and has embraced his role as a Sandwich Maker. However, his plans for a quiet life are thrown awry by the unexpected arrival of his daughter. Theres nothing worse than a frustrated teenager with a copy of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy in their hands. When she runs away, Arthur goes after her determined to save her from the horrors of the universe. After all - hes encountered most of them before.

This publishing phenomenon began as a radio drama and now exists in a number of wildly contradictory versions (including a TV series, a movie and a towel) - this version, produced by Douglas Adams original publisher, is, at least, definitively inaccurate.
