Sep. 17th, 2008 @ 12:49 pm New Hitchhiker book in October next year
New Hitchhiker's author announced
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7619828.stm
Children's author Eoin Colfer has been commissioned to write a sixth instalment of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy series...

I feel sorry for Adams' family. I'm guessing they're still in the enormously deep financial hole that bopAd left them in when he unexpectedly died. Here's hoping this pulls them out of it.

Oh, and hoping that it doesn't suck of course, as well.

Interesting... I love the Artemis Fowl series, so I'm hopeful, I suppose. We'll have to see.

This makes me so sad. Like the world is moving on. :(

I'll still probably end up buying the book though...

That's quite okay. It was our nickname for Douglas back in the day. If you've ever seen his signature, you'll soon work out why.

I was wondering if someone else owned the character rights. Guess not. Must be pretty bad if they're doing this. I'd rather see a TV series. Set in the universe, but not necessarily involving Arthur or Ford. It would give it some separation and some room to grow.

How do you know they were left in a financial hole? Was the guy so bad in financial affairs?

Adams' financial situation was documented in both Wish You Were Here and Hitchhiker (the biographies published after his death), as well as in other published sources.

Okay, I haven't read those yet. Thanks!
