Publisher Comments:

Back on Earth with nothing more to show for his long, strange trip through time and space than a ratty towel and a plastic shopping bag, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription, the mysterious disappearance of Earth's dolphins, and the discovery of his battered copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy all conspire to give Arthur the sneaking suspicion that something otherworldly is indeed going on. . . .

God only knows what it all means. And fortunately, He left behind a Final Message of explanation. But since it's light-years away from Earth, on a star surrounded by souvenir booths, finding out what it is will mean hitching a ride to the far reaches of space aboard a UFO with a giant robot. But what else is new?

Synopsis:

The fourth adventure in the bestselling "Hitchhiker's" series brings Arthur Dent back to Earth with nothing more to show for his long, strange travel than a ratty towel, a plastic shopping bag, and the belief it was all a figment of his stressed-out imagination.

About the Author

Douglas Adams is the bestselling author of the Hitchhiker books: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; The Restaurant at the End of the Universe; Life, The Universe and Everything; and Mostly Harmless.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has appeared in more forms than one might reasonably expect, most of which flatly contradict each other. It has appeared as a BBC-TV series; all sorts of different records, cassettes, and CDs, a computer game, and also, apathetically, a bath towel. A series of graphic novels is currently in preparation, and the motion picture version is confidently expected any decade now.

Adams lives partly in Islington, London, partly in Provence, France, but mostly in airport bookshops.
