READING: Hugo Veld zit dankzij zijn tijdreizen nog altijd vast op de Aarde in de tijd vóór die vernietigd werd. De voormalige planeetontwerper Magdiragdag helpt hem vluchten en vraagt hem om hulp in de strijd tegen de Hokkiërs. De Hokkiërs waren ooit een vredelievend volk, tot ze een ruimteschip leerden bouwen.Toen ze de rest van het universum zagen, schrokken ze zó dat ze besloten dat het vernietigd moest worden. Veld moet dat zien te voorkomen en beleeft onderweg een bizar avontuur. Onderwijl vernietigt hij bijna eigenhandig het leven, het heelal en de rest Douglas Adams (1952-2001) bedacht deze klassieke sf-reeks in 1978, als een BBC-radiohoorspel. Al snel volgden andere media, waaronder een televisiebewerking, een computerspel, drie toneelbewerkingen, negen graphic novels, een speelfi lm en heel veel merchandise. De boeken bleven echter het succesvolst. In 2008 kreeg auteur Eoin Colfer toestemming van Adams weduwe om de reeks af te maken met een zesde deel: En dan nog iets

READING: Jaren geleden, toen de Vogons naar onze planeet kwamen om die te vernietigen, sloeg Hugo Veld aan het liften door het transgalactisch universum. Hugo heeft inmiddels de lengte, breedte en diepte van het bekende universum doorkruisd; is voorwaarts en achteruit door de tijd gegaan; opgeblazen, opnieuw in elkaar gezet, kleurrijk beledigd (meer dan strikt noodzakelijk), wreed gevangengezet en op nog tenenkrommendere wijze vrijgelaten. En natuurlijk heeft hij nog steeds de zin van het leven, het universum en de rest niet door. Nu is Hugo weer thuis: de aarde bestaat nog! Maar voor hij zijn eerste langgewenste kop koffie kan nemen, ziet hij zijn dromen weer in rook opgaan net als alle oceanen op aarde. De planeet dreigt opnieuw te vergaan. En dan nog iets... is het onverwachte maar heel erg gewenste zesde deel in de Hitchhikers-saga. Met een pantheon van werkloze goden, de alom geliefde losgeslagen Galactische president, een groen buitenaards wezen met liefdesverdriet, een heel irritante computer en op zijn minst één heel groot stuk kaas.

READING: De Aarde is vergaan om ruimte te maken voor een hyperruimtesnelweg, gebouwd door een ras van bureaucratische Vogoniërs. Maar waarom blijft de laatste aardbewoner Hugo Veld bij zijn reizen door tijd en ruimte dan steeds terugkomen op versies van de Aarde? Is hier wellicht een hogere macht in het spel? Het raadsel ontvouwt zich maar niet helemaal. Hoewel zijn zoektocht hem leidt naar Gods laatste boodschap aan zijn schepping, kan hij zich later tragisch genoeg met geen mogelijkheid nog herinneren wat die boodschap was Douglas Adams (1952-2001) bedacht deze klassieke sf-reeks in 1978, als een BBC-radiohoorspel.

READING: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Extremely funny . . . inspired lunacy . . . [and] over much too soon.”—The Washington Post Book World Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read Seconds before Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last fifteen years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor. Together, this dynamic pair began a journey through space aided by a galaxyful of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox—the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian (formerly Tricia McMillan), Zaphod’s girlfriend, whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; and Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he’s bought over the years. Where are these pens? Why are we born? Why do we die? For all the answers, stick your thumb to the stars! Praise for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy “A whimsical oddyssey . . . Characters frolic through the galaxy with infectious joy.”—Publishers Weekly “Irresistable!”—The Boston Globe

READING: 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. This one volume ebook edition comes complete with an unhelpful introduction from the author, a bonus short story, Young Zaphod Plays It Safe, and a special undeleted scene . . . 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.

READING: Het Transgalactisch Liftershandboek (Engels: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy) is een komisch sciencefictionfranchise bedacht door Douglas Adams. Het begon als een radiohoorspel van twaalf afleveringen, voor het eerst uitgezonden in 1978 door BBC Radio, daarna door de BBC World Service. In 1981 werd er een zesdelige televisieserie gemaakt. Al snel volgden andere media, waaronder een computerspel, drie toneelbewerkingen, negen graphic novels, een speelfilm en heel veel merchandise. De boekenserie was echter het succesvolst: tussen 1979 en 1992 verschenen vijf delen van de reeks. In 2008 kreeg auteur Eoin Colfer toestemming van de weduwe van Douglas Adams om de reeks af te maken met een zesde deel dat dit jaar in het Nederlands verschijnt: En dan nog iets...

READING: 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.

Furthermore, as a result, we will see in how far this piece of literature can be regarded as serious criticism of religion.
