A Trilogy in Five Parts
The 'nearly-definitive' omnibus edition of 'the greatest sci-fi novel of all time'
THE COMPLETE HITCH HIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY SERIES
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.

“It is funny and funny in every way”
“Indispensable reading for mental hitchhikers who want to thumb a lift out of the ruts of orthodox thought”
“One of the world’s sanest, smartest, kindest, funniest voices”
