4th in the series and really not one you can jump into – so stop trying to save time and start at the beginning to have any hope of understanding what is going on! The Earth was gone – now it’s back (thanks to the Dolphins) as a MkII. We at last see the back of Marvin, well he was 37 times older than the universe and hear God’s final message – glad that’s all clear then.

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

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish by Douglas Adams

With additional material and a new foreword.

Thirty years of celebrating the comic genius of Douglas Adams…

There is a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. It’s not an easy thing to do and Arthur Dent thinks he’s the only human who’s been able to master this nifty little trick – until he meets Fenchurch, the girl of his dreams.

Fenchurch knows how the world could be made a good and happy place. Unfortunately she’s forgotten. Convinced that the secret lies within God’s Final Message to His Creation they go in search of it.

And in a dramatic break with tradition – actually find it…

Volume Four 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.
