New Book By Douglas Adams!
Yes I know hes dead. Its a newly published collection of various articles hes written plus the unfinished Dirk Gently novel Salmon of Doubt.
Being a Dogulas Adams worshiper I just felt I should post this.
It Will Change Your Life.
The Illuminatus Commands It.

There are a number of reasons why you should buy it.
I could mention the trouser horror of September '64, the fish that orbits Jupiter, whisky-fuelled furniture snarling, an accurate horoscope, conclusive proof of time travel and why a policeman confidently informed him he wasn't in the Universe now, he was in England. Douglas once worked as a bodyguard to an Arabic royal family, which generally involved directing girls in the "executive entertainment industry" to the right hotel suite. If you want to know which royal family, or to whom he passed the job when he left, you will need to read this book. Do you know which Hitchhiker novel was inspired by a Procul Harum song? You will soon. If you feel in an appreciative mood later on of course, the final page has ZZ9's contact details.

Could someone post the order that the books go in? The latest one I read was 'Life, the Universe, and Everything.' I'm pretty sure they were all in chronological order until that point but I haven't been able to figure it out.
