The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide - Douglas Adams 8.06   257

Omnibus edition.

Finally here they are in one outrageous volume – all six bestselling Hitchhiker stories by Douglas Adams, including his latest addition to the collection, Mostly Harmless. Plus, you'll find a perplexingly frank introduction by the author himself, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the books and the zany radio series that inspired them.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Arthur Dent, the mild-mannered, out-to-lunch kind of guy, is plucked from Earth just before it is demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Towel in hand, he begins his journey through space and time with his rescuer Ford Prefect, a traveling researcher for the Guide.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
The floor show is Doomsday while Arthur and Ford dine with Zaphod Beeblebrox, well-appendaged, ex-head honcho of the Universe, and Trillian, his human girlfriend. The four friends begin their quest for answers to some of the most confounding questions challenging mankind: When will they finish eating? What is the question to the ultimate answer?

Life, the Universe, and Everything
Everything important and then some is examined in this third book, when Arthur Dent and his companions find they must avert Armageddon and save the Universe for life as we know it (or think we know it!).

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Galaxy-weary space traveler Arthur Dent returns to Earth with his knew voidoid gang to discover that it has been mysteriously reinstated. But more pertinent questions remain: Why did all the dolphins disappear? What is God's final message to his Creation? What really happened the day the Earth was demolished?

Young Zaphod Plays It Safe
The two-headed hero travels to the depths of the ocean floor to investigate the mysterious destruction of the ship that "could one hundred percent positively never crash." With the annoying assitance of the Safety and Civil Reassurance Administration, Zaphod learns some disturbing secrets...

Mostly Harmless
Once again, Arthur Dent tries to return to Earth, but instead settles for an honorary position as head sandwich maker. Meanwhile, the Guide seems to be changing in much-too-mysterious ways, which keeps Ford Prefect on the run – running into Arthur Dent, whose daughter has just hi-jacked Ford's spaceship.

If you're just discovering Douglas Adams's galactic gangbuster of a series, don't panic: The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide is your chance to have it all! (Towel not included.)
