Don't panic! You're not timetripping! It's the tenth anniversary of the publication of Douglas Adams's zany, best-selling novel, and to celebrate Harmony is reissuing a special edition of this cult classic!By now the story is legendary. Arthur Dent, mild-mannered, out-to-lunch earth-ling, is plucked from his planet by his friend Ford Prefect just seconds before it was demolished to make way for a hyper-space bypass.

I know I need to give it credit for being the OG-Original Galaxy- but there have been so many fun, intelligent, well-written books in this genre since then that this jus...
I would call this sci-fi on mushrooms. Funny, but very weird.On a side note: I've never been afraid of rats, but I might reconsider.
