display_description Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability and desperately in search of a place to eat. Among Arthur Dent's motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who's gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android who suffers nothing and no one very gladly. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food (literally) speaks for itself. Will they make it? The answer: hard to say. This book is a sequel to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy the founder of the feast sequel books, the enormously successful BBC Radio series, a BBC television series shown in the US on HBO a stage play, a record even a bath towel. RosettaBooks also publishes three other titles in the series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, So Long and Thanks for All the Fish and Life, the Universe and Everything. Douglas Adams was a prolific writer in many media‚ but he began as a chicken shed cleaner, a bodyguard for an Arab royal family and a guitarist for the rock band Pink Floyd. Upon his death at age 49 in 2001, the BBC News wrote that Douglas Adams was also an internet pioneer. “He believed something powerful was created when people pooled experiences and information and the internet offered a unique opportunity to do just that. He said part of the internet's extraordinary power was the fact that it “evolved as an organic entity, a bottom-up design rather than being hierarchically controlled from above.
