I’m sorry, but this is wrong, all wrong.
NO. 1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR EOIN COLFER TO WRITE THE SIXTH HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
Penguin will publish the sixth novel in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. Eight years after the death of its creator, Douglas Adams, widow Jane Belson has sanctioned the project to be written by the bestselling children’s writer, Eoin Colfer. The new book is entitled “And Another Thing…” and will be published in October 2009.
This from the Penguin Blog UK.
Aside from the fact that I really don’t think anyone should be mucking about with Adams’ work, I’m really not feeling Eoin Colfer as the one to carry the mantle. I could be wrong, but I totally see myself reading this and going “Nope, that’s not how Adams would have done it,” and that’ll be that.
Does anyone out there have more faith than I do?
