The Hitchhiker's Trilogy The Hitchhiker's Trilogy by Douglas Adams
reviewed by David Maddox
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, penned by the late, great Douglas Adams, still needs no introduction. David actually said this a few years ago when he wrote a review of the first three books in the trilogy. First of all if you STILL haven't ready the sci-fi genre-transcending SF experience that is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, go read it already. David will wait.

The Complete Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy The Complete Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
an audio review by Tom Marcinko
It's not just that these are even better than the novels, or that they compensate for the well-meaning dud of a movie. The Guide, originally conceived as a radio show, still works best in its original medium. (Please note that these are not audiobooks, but full-cast dramatizations, complete with actors, music, sound effects, and things blowing up.)

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Tertiary Phase Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Tertiary Phase by Douglas Adams
an audio review by Steven H Silver
The BBC has successfully put together the surviving cast from the first series. Simon Jones, Stephen Moore, and Mark Wing-Davey, who played Arthur Dent, Marvin, and Zaphod Beeblebrox on both radio and television, and Geoffrey McGivern (Ford Prefect) return for their third series. Susan Sheridan, who portrayed Trillian in the first series has returned to the role for the third series. The replacement of Peter Jones (the Book) by William Franklyn and Richard Vernon (Slartibartfast) by Richard Griffiths works well.

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy by Douglas Adams
reviewed by David Maddox
This trilogy needs no introduction. It has become one of the most recognizable series in the SF genre, transcending SF barriers and delighting fans of all ages for decades. If you haven't read it, go read it now because you're missing out. Although the increasingly inaccurate trilogy has been in print for many years, these three new editions by Victor Gollancz truly do the books justice.

The Salmon of Doubt The Salmon of Doubt by Douglas Adams
reviewed by Jayme Lynn Blaschke
This is a sad, sad book. That much is obvious from the moment one opens it up -- the large type gives it away. There's padding here. Lots of it. Never mind that every page serves as a reminder that the author will write no more, will never again miss deadlines by spectacularly wide margins. This book was inevitable, however, given the fact he was almost a decade late on delivering a novel for which he'd been advanced an obscene amount of money.

The Salmon of Doubt The Salmon of Doubt by Douglas Adams
reviewed by Steven H Silver
The book is divided into three sections, named "Life," "The Universe," and "and Everything." The first section contains numerous interviews and essays in which the author talks about his own experiences. The second section of the book contains essays he wrote about causes he was concerned about. The final section of the book contains notes on the as yet unmade Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie, two short stories and the titular novel fragment.
