Science Fiction Brewed Fresh Daily

Panic.

Eoin Colfer, Irish author of children’s books and something called the Artemis Fowl novels (never heard of him or them), has been tapped to write a sixth Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy installment.

…And Another Thing is due out October of next year, and will feature all of the old standards: Arthur, Ford, Zaphod, Marvin, blah, blah, blah. It will apparently have a shiny, happy ending, as the article quotes Douglas Adams as saying that he wanted the series to end on a more upbeat note.

Oh, goody.

Everybody who feels that Douglas Adams had a singular voice which can’t be imitated, raise your hands.

Yeah, me too.

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to treat this book like the Matrix sequels, the three Star Wars prequels, and everything that happened after Aliens and simply pretend it doesn’t exist. La la la, nothing to see here, move along.
