Thursdays. I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy
Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy

If you know who said those words, you’ll be very pleased to learn that the sixth book in a particular series penned on a small, blue-green planet in the south-western arm of the Milky Way is coming out next October. For the uninitiated, Arthur Dent immortalised the phrase in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the galaxy – the hilarious radio series which became books, TV programmes and films.

Eoin Colfer, best-known for his Artemis Fowl series, will write And another thing … and has described the opportunity to write the book as ‘suddenly being offered the superpower of your choice’.

It won’t be Colfer writing as Adams, the Guardian reports, but it will be great to see the characters given a new lease of life.

    Why oh why??!! Getting someone to take over another writers work is so…icky. And I can’t think of a successful instance of it, unless you count ones like Virginia Andrews where people just PRETEND to be her. Blrgh, it won’t be on my reading list unless it gets some especially spectacular reviews.
