Press Release: So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish & Mostly Harmless
‘An astonishing comic writer: he could craft sentences that
changed the way a reader viewed the world’
The final two volumes in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series are suitably packed with ‘excitement, adventure and really wild things’.
In So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, Arthur Dent finds himself
unexpectedly back on Earth – despite it having been destroyed
to make way for a hyperspace bypass – and, even more unexpectedly, falling in love.
In Mostly Harmless, Arthur struggles to deal with a teenage daughter he didn’t know existed, while the sinister future of the Guide itself is revealed.
These editions, produced in series with the previous Hitchhiker novels,
are once again illustrated by award-winning artist Jonathan Burton. His ingenious, quirky images capture the wildest flights of Adams’s imagination, including Wonko the Sane’s unsettling inside-out house, sinister squirrels obsessed with customer service and a giant silver robot standing in the rubble of Harrods. Adams was a master of the charmingly
outlandish, and Burton has risen to each unusual challenge set by Adams’s
text, making his witty images the perfect guide to the Guide.
