We don’t really have a book section but I knew lots of you would be keen to hear that Penguin has confirmed that And Another Thing, the 6th novel Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series will be published on 12th October 2009, the 30th anniversary of publication of the first book in Douglas Adams’ phenomenally successful series.
Written by international bestselling children’s writer Eoin Colfer, And Another Thing will get a simultaneous global publication, a move likely to please legions of eager fans . So far rights have been sold to Hyperion in the US and to other prominent publishers in Germany, Italy, France, Denmark, Sweden and Finland.
Alex Clarke, Editorial Director, Penguin UK, said “I have been talking to Eoin, who tells us he is busy working out just how it is he is going to bring back Arthur, Ford and Trillian from the dead. We are all hugely looking forward to the publishing event of 2009.”
