Infolge einer Reihe von atemberaubenden Katastrophen findet sich Arthur Dent überraschenderweise in einer schrecklich primitiven Höhle auf der prähistorischen Erde wieder. Am richtigen Ort, nur leider zur falschen Zeit, und die Zeit ist schließlich der ungeeignetste Ort, an dem man verloren gehen kann. Um wieder zurück in die Weiten der Galaxis zu gelangen, sind er und Ford Prefect angewiesen auf Slartibartfass. Doch als Arthur einen intergalaktischen Krieg unterbinden soll und den Freunden allmählich klar wird, in welche Abenteuer sie sich da gestürzt haben, wünschen sie sich wieder zurück in ihre Steinzeithöhle. Der dritte Band der inter-galaktischen Kult-Serie »Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis«.

Daumen raus – die Reise per Anhalter durch die Galaxis geht weiter Arthur Dents zufällige Beziehung zum außergewöhnlichen Reiseführer "Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis" blieb nicht gänzlich ohne Zwischenfälle. Arthur hat den bekannten (und unbekannten) Weltraum bis in die letzten Winkel und darüber hinaus bereist, nachdem sein Haus (und der gesamte Planet Erde) an einem furchtbar dummen Donnerstag einer Hyperraum-Schnellstraße weichen musste. Nach diversen Eskapaden im Raum-Zeit-Kontinuum landet er schließlich zu Hause auf der geliebten Erde – die gleich darauf wieder in die Luft fliegt. Arthurs Aussichten auf eine gemütliche Tasse Tee sind nicht gerade rosig ... In "Und übrigens noch was ..." bekommt er es unter anderem mit arbeitslosen Göttern zu tun, abtrünnigen galaktischen Präsidenten, verliebten grünen Aliens, lästigen Computern und einer ziemlich großen Scheibe Käse.

DON'T PANIC: collected together in the Hitchhiker's Guide Trilogy are the five titles that comprise Douglas Adams' wildly popular and wholly remarkable comedy science fiction series.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be rather a lot to cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun. The Galaxy may offer a mind-boggling variety of ways to be blown up and/or insulted, but it’s very hard to get a cup of tea. The Restaurant at the End of the Universe When all questions of space, time, matter and the nature of being have been resolved, only one question remains - 'Where shall we have dinner?' The Restaurant at the End of the Universe provides the ultimate gastronomic experience, and for once there is no morning after to worry about. Life, the Universe and Everything Following a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent is surprised to find himself living in a hideously miserable cave on prehistoric Earth. However, just as he thinks that things cannot get possibly worse, they suddenly do. An eddy in the space-time continuum lands him, Ford Prefect, and their flying sofa in the middle of the cricket ground at Lord's, just two days before the world is due to be destroyed by the Vogons. Escaping the end of the world for a second time, Arthur, Ford, and their old friend Slartibartfast embark (reluctantly) on a mission to save the whole galaxy from fanatical robots. Not bad for a man in his dressing gown. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish There is a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. It's not an easy thing to do, and Arthur Dent thinks he's the only human who's been able to master this nifty little trick - until he meets Fenchurch, the woman of his dreams. Fenchurch once realised how the world could be made a good and happy place. Unfortunately, she's forgotten. Convinced that the secret lies within God's Final Message to His Creation, they go in search of it. And, in a dramatic break with tradition, actually find it . . . Mostly Harmless Arthur Dent has settled down on the small planet Lamuella and has embraced his role as a Sandwich Maker. However, his plans for a quiet life are thrown awry by the unexpected arrival of his daughter. There's nothing worse than a frustrated teenager with a copy of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in their hands. When she runs away, Arthur goes after her determined to save her from the horrors of the universe. After all - he's encountered most of them before. This publishing phenomenon began as a radio drama and now exists in a number of wildly contradictory versions (including a TV series, a movie and a towel) - this version, produced by Douglas Adams' original publisher, is, at least, definitively inaccurate.

This is the "philosophy and. ." book that really needed to be written – because it is about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. For (to paraphrase the great man himself) Hitchhiker's is not above a little philosophy in the same way that the sea is not above the sky. Moreover: this edited collection combines accessibility – and some humor – with rigor. It contains an introduction, nine chapters, a glossary, and multiple indexes. Topics covered include the meaning of life (and "42"), vegetarianism, the ethics of entertainment, artificial intelligence, multiple worlds, God, and philosophical method.

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Theology - Miscellaneous, grade: A, University of Glasgow, course: Religion and Literature, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Die Arbeit wurde im Rahmen meines Auslandssemesters in Theologie geschrieben und von meinem Schottischen Dozenten mit A bewertet und in Deutschland von meinem Englisch-Prof als ANGLISTIK-LITERATUR HAUPTSEMINAR Schein anerkannt und mit 1,7 bewertet., abstract: Douglas Adams says about himself that he is not just a confessing atheist, but rather a radical atheist. This attitude leads us to the task of this seminar paper. It will examine some of the theological and philosophical elements, which appear in the text, and how the author's personal confession influenced their use. Furthermore, as a result, we will see in how far this piece of literature can be regarded as serious criticism of religion.

Twenty-five years after the original radio series of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy exploded into the public consciousness, the further exploits of its bewildered hero Arthur Dent were finally adapted for radio by Dirk Maggs, in part using drafts written by Douglas Adams before his death. The resulting fourteen completely new episodes were produced by Above the Title Productions and broadcast on BBC Radio 4, with nearly all of the original cast reunited for recording. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Radio Scripts Volume 2 brilliantly bring to life the last three books in Adams' perennially popular Hitchhiker series: Life, the Universe and Everything; So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish; and Mostly Harmless. Dirk Maggs supplies notes which highlight original Adams material and explain how the cast, special effects and music were directed. The scripts are introduced by Simon Jones, who played Arthur Dent in both the original and the recent radio series, as well as in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy television series. Douglas Adams first conceived The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for radio and it is an honour to his memory that all five Hitchhiker novels have now been adapted for this medium. These scripts exemplify the freshness of perspective, humour and perspicacity that epitomize the work of Douglas Adams.

For the first time, the full story behind the Hitch-Hiker's Guide is told in all its bizarre detail: the Finnish radio series, the German one-man stage show, the modern jazz suite, the two-headed teddy bears... Every variant of the story, every spin-off and cash-in, is documented in context, including the feature film, which has been stuck in development hell for more than 20 years. Based on 20 years of research and extensive interviews with the cast and crew of Hitchhiker's Guide, this book also includes details of Adams's other projects.
