Few years ago I made the following 3 PDF's of The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy 5-books My fave Douglas Adams quotesIn "Books".
At this point they said, very pleasantly and politely, that I had already passed ten deadlines, so would I please just finish the page I was on and let them have the damn thing. Meanwhile, I was busy trying to write another series and was also writing and script editing the TV series "Dr.
Who," because while it was all very pleasant to have your own radio series, especially one that somebody had written in to say they had heard, it didn't exactly download you lunch.
Clearly, somebody had been listening. This is where things start getting complicated, and this is what I was asked, in writing this Introduction, to explain. The radio series began in England in March The first series consisted of six programs, or "fits" as they were called. Fits 1 thru 6. Later that year, one more episode was recorded and broadcast, commonly known as the Christmas episode.
It contained no reference of any kind to Christmas. It was called the Christmas episode because it was first broadcast on December 24, which is not Christmas Day. After this, things began to get increasingly complicated. It was a substantially expanded version of the first four episodes of the radio series, in which some of the characters behaved in entirely different ways and others behaved in exactly the same ways but for entirely different reasons, which amounts to the same thing but saves rewriting the dialogue.
At roughly the same time a double record album was released, which was, by contrast, a slightly contracted version of the first four episodes of the radio series. These were not the recordings that were originally broadcast but wholly new recordings of substantially the same scripts. This was done because we had used music off gramophone records as incidental music for the series, which is fine on radio, but makes commercial release impossible. In January , five new episodes of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" were broadcast on BBC Radio, all in one week, bringing the total number to twelve episodes.
In the fall of , the second Hitchhiker book was published in England, around the same time that Harmony Books published the first book in the United States. It was a very substantially reworked, reedited and contracted version of episodes 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, S and 6 in that order of the radio series "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. At roughly the same time, a second record album was made featuring a heavily rewritten and expanded version of episodes 5 and 6 of the radio series.
This record album was also called The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. This was based, more or less, on the first six episodes of the radio series.
In other words, it incorporated most of the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the second half of the book The Restaurant at be End of the Universe.

Therefore, though it followed the basic structure of the radio series, it incorporated revisions from the books, which didn't. In the summer of , a third Hitchhiker book was published simultaneously in England and the United States, called Life, the Universe and Everything.
This was not based on anything that had already been heard or seen on radio or television. In fact it flatly contradicted episodes 7, 8, 9, 10, I 1 and 12 of the radio series. These episodes of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," you will remember, had already been incorporated in revised form in the book called The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
At this point I went to America to write a film screenplay which was completely inconsistent with most of what has gone on so far, and since that film was then delayed in the making a rumor currently has it that filming will start shortly before the Last Trump , I wrote a fourth and last book in the trilogy, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.
This was published in Britain and the USA in the fall of and it effectively contradicted everything to date, up to and including itself. As if this all were not enough I wrote a computer game for Infocom called The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which bore only fleeting resemblances to anything that had previously gone under that title, and in collaboration with Geoffrey Perkins assembled The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy: The Original Radio Scripts published in England and the USA in Now this was an interesting venture.
The book is, as the title suggests, a collection of all the radio scripts, as broadcast, and it is therefore the only example of one Hitchhiker publication accurately and consistently reflecting another. People often ask me how they can leave the planet, so I have prepared some brief notes. How to Leave the Planet I. Phone NASA. Explain that it's very important that you get away as soon as possible.
They don't have any friends there either at least, none to speak of , but they do seem to have a little influence, so you may as well try. If that also fails, phone the Pope for guidance. If all these attempts fail, flag down a passing flying saucer and explain that de's vitally important you get away before your phone bill arrives. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches. Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place.
And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans. And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, one girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything. Sadly, however, before she could get to a phone to tell anyone about it, a terribly stupid catastrophe occurred, and the idea was lost forever. This is not her story. But it is the story of that terrible stupid catastrophe and some of its consequences. Nevertheless, a wholly remarkable book. In many of the more relaxed civilizations on the Outer Eastern Rim of the Galaxy, the Hitch Hiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects.
But the story of this terrible, stupid Thursday, the story of its extraordinary consequences, and the story of how these consequences are inextricably intertwined with this remarkable book begins very simply.
It begins with a house. Chapter 1 The house stood on a slight rise just on the edge of the village. It stood on its own and looked over a broad spread of West Country farmland. The only person for whom the house was in any way special was Arthur Dent, and that was only because it happened to be the one he lived in.
He had lived in it for about three years, ever since he had moved out of London because it made him nervous and irritable. Hedgehope, July 3rd. Dalfibble vb. Dalmilling ptcl. Darvel vb. Deal n.
