The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, aka the day Douglas Adams discovered cut and paste.

This book is actually something of a technical challenge given portions were hand written and cut and paste was actually somewhat new technology at least at the desktop.  The book however addresses a number of the weaknesses of the second radio play, ditching the overdone shoe economy in favour of a more economical book and the result is definitely easier to read even if it’s not got a lot of additional material.

While this book is still not as accessible as the original it’s a lot of fun.

Plus you get the bonus of the stage play and game.

Highway To Mars

Welcome to Martian Central, please take a ticket, the sheep ray will be with you shortly. Highway to Mars was created by Author Stefan Sawynok as an excuse to ramble his way through Science Fiction that he liked and to shine a light on things such as books that don't get covered all that often in fandom. Mostly covers British and American sci-fi but occasionally steps out to cover pieces from around the world. There is so much Sci-fi out there and so little time. :)
