The international multimedia phenomenon that is Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy needs little introduction. From its beginnings as a Radio 4 series to the novels, TV, film and stage adaptations and computer games that followed in its wake, the adventures of Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox and Trillian are loved by legions of fans.
Eight years after the tragically early death of its creator, Douglas Adams, his widow Jane Belson sanctioned a sixth novel in the Hitchhiker's series written by the international bestselling children's writer Eoin Colfer (author of the Artemis Fowl novels).
Colfer, a fan of the Hitchhiker's series wrote And Another Thing..., which continues the series where Adams left off.
Abridged by Penny Leicester, Colfer's eagerly anticipated sixth instalment in the series sees Hitchhiker's return to Radio 4 once again.
