The 2nd installment of this brilliant Sci fi comedy continues. Who really runs the universe? What happens when the universe stops? And why Hairdressers and Advertising Account Execs bugger up the most sophisticated computer in all of creation! Sublime writing from the ‘mostly harmless’ now sadly deceased (in this dimension anyway) Douglas Adams.

Even 30 years on this is still a fresh and funny series of stories, whether you read them or listen to the original BBC radio shows. The anarchic, or ‘random’ to use modern parlance, plot, place settings and characters makes them more appealing than a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster!

Synopsis

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams

With additional material and a new foreword.

Thirty years of celebrating the comic genius of Douglas Adams…

If you’ve done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the end of the Universe?

Which is exactly what the crew of the Heart of Gold plan to do. There’s just the small matter of escaping the Vogons, avoiding being taken to the most totally evil world in the Galaxy and teaching a space ship how to make a proper cup of tea.

And did anyone actually make a reservation?

Volume Two in the Trilogy of Five.

About the Author

Douglas Adams

Douglas Adams was born in 1952 and created all the various and contradictory manifestations of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: radio, novels, TV, computer game, stage adaptation, comic book and bath towel. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was published thirty years ago......on 12 October 1979 and its phenomenal success sent the book straight to number one in the UK bestseller list. In 1984 Douglas Adams became the youngest author to be awarded a Golden Pan. His series has sold over 15 million books in the UK, the US and Australia and was also a bestseller in German and many other languages. The feature film starring Martin Freeman and Zooey Deschanel with Stephen Fry as the Guide was released in 2005 using much of Douglas’s original script and ideas. Douglas lived with his wife and daughter in Islington, North London, and briefly in California, where he died in 2001.
