Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every aspect of the science fiction classic The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is analyzed in a variety of quirky ways in this collection of essays. Topics include the logistics of the restaurant at the end of the universe, how the Internet is creating the real Hitchhiker's Guide, an assessment of Vogon poetry, and an analysis of computing. The essays are written by both science fiction greats, such as Cory Doctorow, Lawrence Watt-Evans, Stephen Baxter, Jacqueline Carey, and Alastair Reynolds, and up-and-coming writers.

Book News Annotation:

Collected essays by 19 science fiction authors, readers, and technology experts analyze aspects of Douglas Adams' classic Hitchhiker's Guide series, from linguistics to humor to the real meaning of 42 and how it answers the question of life, the universe, and everything. The volume includes the text of a rare interview with Adams, conducted in the early 1980s by John Shirley for the science fiction and fantasy magazine Heavy Metal. There's no index.
