Douglas AdamsThe Restaurant at the End of the Universe (Hitchhikers' Trilogy #2)Hitchhikers' TrilogyWarning! This second volume in the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series is definitely not a standalone book. Enjoying, or even understanding, the continuing adventures of Earthling Arthur Dent, his strange pal Ford Prefect, and the very, very odd Zaphod Beeblebrox requires previous study and preparation. Confusion and possible insanity awaits the poor soul who tries to figure out the second title without having read the first. Arthur and Ford, having survived the destruction of Earth by surreptitiously hitching a ride on a Vogon constructor ship, have been kicked off that ship by its commander. Now they find themselves aboard a stolen Improbability Drive ship commanded by Beeblebrox, ex-president of the Imperial Galactic Government and full-time thief. Narrated by Adams, this production is a treat for fans of the late author and others who enjoy British comedy. Be sure to buy all five parts of the "Hitchhiker" series or your patrons will storm your office. One caveat: this audiobook will need to be repackaged for library circulation.

Douglas AdamsMostly Harmless (Hitchhikers' Trilogy #5)Hitchhikers' TrilogyFord Prefect, of the planet Betelgeuse, and Earthman Arthur Dent began their whimsical odyssey in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In Adams' latest book, Ford relies on serendipity and his own quick wits to protect a powerful new edition of the Hitchhiker's Guide from the loathsome, sluglike Vogons. Ford's pal, Arthur, misses his planet and his old flame, Tricia McMillan. The rootless traveler from Earth finds his metier, however, on Lamuella, a world whose people subsist on Perfectly Normal Beast. Adams sets a rapid pace that becomes even more hectic when Arthur is unexpectedly joined by Tricia; her peevish teenage daughter; Ford Prefect; and the travel guide to the stars. The book once looked like a hand-held computer; now it takes the shape of a mechanical talking bird. Using new techniques, this floating device can whisk users through space and time. Thus the scene shifts back to Earth, where the past, present and future braid together. Adams may depend too much on the cliffhanger form. But his ingenious wit still captivates, and his characters frolic through the galaxy with infectious joy. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.Hardcover
Douglas AdamsLife, the Universe and Everything (Hitchhiker's Trilogy #3)Hitchhikers' Trilogy“Wild satire . . . the feckless protagonist, Arthur Dent, is reminiscent of Vonnegut heroes.”—Chicago Tribune “Adams is one of those rare treasures: an author who, one senses, has as much fun writing as one has reading.”—Arizona Daily Star From the Trade Paperback edition. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.Hardcover

Brian Wilson AldissSeasons in FlightMany SF authors devote their careers to rewriting the same bookwith great acclaim from fans. Aldiss's continued growth and experimentation have exasperated certain devotees but have exhilarated many other readers. Now, after his long, magnificent Helliconia trilogy, Aldiss offers a short book of enigmatic fables. Many of these describe a conflict or friction between two cultures, classes or towns that ends in fruitless strife or mutual consternation. The moral message of conciliation and understanding is repeatedly undercut by the sad reminder of selfish human nature. Only one entry breaks free from this limited format: "The Girl Who Sang," which is alone here in creating characters and a specific, evocative background (it is set in the world of the Helliconia novels). A minor if intriguing book from a major writer. January 22 Copyright 1985 Reed Business Information, Inc.Hardcover
Brian Wilson AldissGalaxies Like Grains of Sand'Brian Aldiss seems to have always had a more oceanic sense of time than most science fiction writers, an almost measured vision of what will transpire in the long run, a time-sense which is reflected both in his fiction and in the pace and course of his career.' Norman Spinrad These nine stories from 1960, early in Brian Aldiss's long and productive career, were originally conceived as a single entity, and form a chronicle of the next forty million years. They are arranged sequentially, beginning with the near-future and ending, with 'The Ultimate Millennia', hundreds of thousands, or even millions of years later. 'One cannot help being struck by the variety of concepts, the mastery of style, the sureness of the dialogue, the depth of characterization, the fertility of ideas, and the urbanity of the wit ... here is a major talent at work.'
