THE COMPLETE HITCH HIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY SERIES

Don't panic.

First a legendary radio series, then a sequence of bestselling books, a television series, a computer game, a little-known Belgian progressive rock opera, a blockbuster movie, and finally this handsome hardback edition - primarily intended as a blunt object with which to bludgeon one's enemies - The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of the greatest fictional enterprises of the twentieth century.

Telling the long, circuitous and often inexplicable story of Arthur Dent, left homeless and rather annoyed after the Earth is destroyed in order to build a hyperspace expressway, this edition collects all five parts of the trilogy-

The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Life, the Universe and Everything
So Long and Thanks For All the Fish
Mostly Harmless

along with a wealth of extra material prefaced and contextualised by Jem Roberts, the official biographer of Douglas Adams, to complete the canon.

Introduced by Richard Dawkins and Nick Harkaway

    Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy was an incredible influence on me as a teenager. The thought that you could make any subject, even the destruction of the whole planet, as funny as Douglas Adams did was a revelation. I can still quote Vogon poetry as well, chicks go wild for it.*
