I was never really into Douglas Adams, and only read a couple of the novels.
What do you think of Eoin Colfer writing a sequel to the HGTTG series?November 13, 2008 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #644577
A sequel? It ends – what comes after an end?November 13, 2008 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #644578anon for thisParticipant
Sorry, squeak, as I said I didn’t read the entire HGTTG series, so I don’t know how a new book would fit in to the series. But Colfer has been commissioned by Adams’ widow, Jane Belson, to write a sixth installment of the series. It’s to be titled, _And Another Thing…_ and will be published in October of next year.
My kids like Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series, which is why the news caught my attention in the first place.
Will you be reading _And Another Thing…_ when it’s published?November 13, 2008 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #644579

Not an exact quote (the idea is from my memory – i dont have a copy handy):
They were trying to make a spacecraft faster than light to go lightyears in less than years. However they realized the only thing that travels faster than light is bad news. It didn’t work out well when they tried to fuel a spacecraft on bad news.November 14, 2008 2:59 am at 2:59 am #644581noitallmrParticipant
