|'Life, the Universe and Everything'
by Douglas Adams
‘ONE OF THE STRANGEST EVENTS IN THE HISTORY OF LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING OCCURRED HERE ON EARTH SHORTLY BEFORE IT GOT DEMOLISHED…’
For two books, humankind has been unaware of a not inconsequential snippet of information.
The most careful consultation of The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and The Restaurant at the End of the Universe have left millions unaware of why Earth has always been shunned by the rest of the Galaxy. Now all – and more – can be revealed…
‘THE HISTORY OF THE HITCH-HIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY IS ONE OF IDEALISM, DESPAIR, STRUGGLE, PASSION, SUCCESS, FAILURE AND ENORMOUSLY LONG LUNCH BREAKS’
Quoted from an interview with Hurling Froontmig, 17th acting editor of the Guide
‘WHY STOP NOW, JUST WHEN I’M HATING IT’
