Douglas Adams continues his ‘trilogy in five parts’ with the story of Arthur Dent and his friends. They have escaped the Vogons and are on the Heart of Gold spaceship, but it is not long before disaster strikes. Arthur asks the ship’s computer to make a cup of tea, which occupies it so completely that it is unable to evade an angry Vogon battleship. Fortunately, Zaphod’s great-grandfather (contacted during a séance) succeeds in rescuing the ship and sending Zaphod to the headquarters of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – where the trouble really begins. At least their adventures will take them to Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, ‘one of the most extraordinary ventures in the entire history of catering’.

Douglas Adams’s work has been compared to that of Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Stoppard and even Lewis Carroll and Jonathan Swift. He combines entertaining inventions such as Playbeing magazine with original thoughts on everything from politics to evolution. In his introduction, science-fiction writer Adam Roberts describes The Restaurant at the End of the Universe as ‘that rare thing: a sequel that surpasses its original’. Illustrator Jonathan Burton has outdone himself with depictions of scenes such as the appalling paradise of Ursa Minor Beta and the captain of the Golgafrinchan regiment having a bath.
