Also reprising their roles from the original radio series were Jonathan Pryce as Zarniwoop here blended with a character from the final novel to become Zarniwoop Vann Harl , Rula Lenska as Lintilla and her clones and also as the Voice of the Bird , and Roy Hudd as Milliways compere Max Quordlepleen, as well as the original radio series' announcer, John Marsh. Finally, Adams himself played the role of Agrajag, a performance adapted from his book-on-tape reading of the third novel, and edited into the series created some time after the author's death.

The novels are described as "a trilogy in five parts", having been described as a trilogy on the release of the third book, and then a "trilogy in four parts" on the release of the fourth book. The US edition of the fifth book was originally released with the legend "The fifth book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Trilogy" on the cover. Subsequent re-releases of the other novels bore the legend "The [first, second, third, fourth] book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Trilogy".
In addition, the blurb on the fifth book describes it as "the book that gives a whole new meaning to the word 'trilogy ' ". The plots of the television and radio series are more or less the same as that of the first two novels, though some of the events occur in a different order and many of the details are changed. Much of parts five and six of the radio series were written by John Lloyd , but his material did not make it into the other versions of the story and is not included here. Many consider the books' version of events to be definitive because they are the most readily accessible and widely distributed version of the story.
However, they are not the final version that Adams produced. Before his death from a heart attack on 11 May , Adams was considering writing a sixth novel in the Hitchhiker's series. He was working on a third Dirk Gently novel, under the working title The Salmon of Doubt , but felt that the book was not working and abandoned it. In an interview, he said some of the ideas in the book might fit better in the Hitchhiker's series, and suggested he might rework those ideas into a sixth book in that series. He described Mostly Harmless as "a very bleak book" and said he "would love to finish Hitchhiker on a slightly more upbeat note".
Adams also remarked that if he were to write a sixth instalment, he would at least start with all the characters in the same place. In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy published in , the characters visit the legendary planet Magrathea, home to the now-collapsed planet-building industry, and meet Slartibartfast , a planetary coastline designer who was responsible for the fjords of Norway. Through archival recordings, he relates the story of a race of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings who built a computer named Deep Thought to calculate the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

When the answer was revealed to be 42 , Deep Thought explained that the answer was incomprehensible because the beings didn't know what the Question they were asking actually was. It went on to predict that another computer, more powerful than itself, would be made and designed by it to calculate the question for the answer. Later on, referencing this, Adams would create the 42 Puzzle , a puzzle which could be approached in multiple ways, all yielding the answer The computer, often mistaken for a planet because of its size and use of biological components , was the Earth, and was destroyed by Vogons to make way for a hyperspatial express route five minutes before the conclusion of its million-year program.
Two members of the race of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings who commissioned the Earth in the first place disguise themselves as Trillian's mice , and want to dissect Arthur's brain to help reconstruct the question, since he was part of the Earth's matrix moments before it was destroyed, and so he is likely to have part of the question buried in his brain. Trillian is also human but had left Earth six months previously with Zaphod Beeblebrox, the President of the Galaxy with two heads and three arms.
The protagonists escape, setting the course for "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe". The book was adapted from the first four radio episodes. It was first published in , initially in paperback, by Pan Books , after BBC Publishing had turned down the offer of publishing a novelization, an action they would later regret.
A hardback edition was published by Harmony Books, a division of Random House in the United States in October , and the US paperback edition was promoted by the give-away of 3, free copies in the magazine Rolling Stone to build word of mouth. In , Del Rey Books re-released the Hitchhiker series with new covers for the release of the movie.
A photo-illustrated edition of the first novel appeared in In The Restaurant at the End of the Universe published in , Zaphod is separated from the others and finds he is part of a conspiracy to uncover who really runs the Universe. Zaphod meets Zarniwoop , a conspirator and editor for The Guide , who knows where to find the secret ruler. Zaphod becomes briefly reunited with the others for a trip to Milliways , the restaurant of the title.
Zaphod and Ford decide to steal a ship from there, which turns out to be a stunt ship pre-programmed to plunge into a star as a special effect in a stage show. Unable to change course, the main characters get Marvin to run the teleporter they find in the ship, which is working other than having no automatic control someone must remain behind to operate it , and Marvin seemingly sacrifices himself.

Zaphod and Trillian discover that the Universe is in the safe hands of a simple man living on a remote planet in a wooden shack with his cat. Ford and Arthur, meanwhile, end up on a spacecraft full of the outcasts of the Golgafrinchan civilization. The ship crashes on prehistoric Earth; Ford and Arthur are stranded, and it becomes clear that the inept Golgafrinchans are the ancestors of modern humans, having displaced the Earth's indigenous hominids.
This has disrupted the Earth's programming so that when Ford and Arthur manage to extract the final readout from Arthur's subconscious mind by pulling lettered tiles from a Scrabble set, it is "What do you get if you multiply six by nine? The book was adapted from the remaining material in the radio series—covering from the fifth episode to the twelfth episode, although the ordering was greatly changed in particular, the events of Fit the Sixth , with Ford and Arthur being stranded on pre-historic Earth, end the book, and their rescue in Fit the Seventh is deleted , and most of the Brontitall incident was omitted, instead of the Haggunenon sequence, co-written by John Loyd, the Disaster Area stunt ship was substituted—this having first been introduced in the LP version.
Adams himself considered Restaurant to be his best novel of the five.

There they run into Slartibartfast, who enlists their aid in preventing galactic war. Long ago, the people of Krikkit attempted to wipe out all life in the Universe, but they were stopped and imprisoned on their home planet; now they are poised to escape. With the help of Marvin, Zaphod, and Trillian, our heroes prevent the destruction of life in the Universe and go their separate ways.
This was the first Hitchhiker's book originally written as a book and not adapted from radio. Its story was based on a treatment Adams had written for a Doctor Who theatrical release,  with the Doctor role being split between Slartibartfast to begin with , and later Trillian and Arthur. In it was adapted for radio as the Tertiary Phase of the radio series. In So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish published in , Arthur returns home to Earth, rather surprisingly since it was destroyed when he left. He meets and falls in love with a girl named Fenchurch , and discovers this Earth is a replacement provided by the dolphins in their Save the Humans campaign.
Eventually, he rejoins Ford, who claims to have saved the Universe in the meantime, to hitch-hike one last time and see God's Final Message to His Creation. Along the way, they are joined by Marvin, the Paranoid Android, who, although 37 times older than the universe itself what with time travel and all , has just enough power left in his failing body to read the message and feel better about it all before expiring.
This was the first Hitchhiker's novel which was not an adaptation of any previously written story or script. In it was adapted for radio as the Quandary Phase of the radio series. Finally, in Mostly Harmless published in , Vogons take over The Hitchhiker's Guide under the name of InfiniDim Enterprises , to finish, once and for all, the task of obliterating the Earth.
After abruptly losing Fenchurch and travelling around the galaxy despondently, Arthur's spaceship crashes on the planet Lamuella , where he settles in happily as the official sandwich-maker for a small village of simple, peaceful people. Meanwhile, Ford Prefect breaks into The Guide's offices, gets himself an infinite expense account from the computer system, and then meets The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Mark II , an artificially intelligent, multi-dimensional guide with vast power and a hidden purpose.
After he declines this dangerously powerful machine's aid which he receives anyway , he sends it to Arthur Dent for safety "Oh yes, whose? Trillian uses DNA that Arthur donated for travelling money to have a daughter, and when she goes to cover a war, she leaves her daughter Random Frequent Flyer Dent with Arthur. Arthur, Ford, Trillian, and Tricia McMillan Trillian in this alternate universe follow her to a crowded club, where an anguished Random becomes startled by a noise and inadvertently fires her gun at Arthur.
The shot misses Arthur and kills a man the ever-unfortunate Agrajag. All of the main characters, save Zaphod, were on Earth at the time and are apparently killed, bringing a good deal of satisfaction to the Vogons. In it was adapted for radio as the Quintessential Phase of the radio series, with the final episode first transmitted on 21 June It was announced in September that Eoin Colfer , author of Artemis Fowl , had been commissioned to write the sixth instalment entitled And Another Thing The story begins as death rays bear down on Earth, and the characters awaken from a virtual reality.
Zaphod picks them up shortly before they are killed, but completely fails to escape the death beams. They are then saved by Bowerick Wowbagger , the Infinitely Prolonged, whom they agree to help kill. Zaphod travels to Asgard to get Thor 's help. In the meantime, the Vogons are heading to destroy a colony of people who also escaped Earth's destruction, on the planet Nano. Arthur, Wowbagger, Trillian and Random head to Nano to try to stop the Vogons, and on the journey, Wowbagger and Trillian fall in love, making Wowbagger question whether or not he wants to be killed.

Zaphod arrives with Thor, who then signs up to be the planet's God. With Random's help, Thor almost kills Wowbagger. Wowbagger, who merely loses his immortality, then marries Trillian. Thor then stops the first Vogon attack and apparently dies. Meanwhile, Constant Mown, son of Prostetnic Jeltz, convinces his father that the people on the planet are not citizens of Earth, but are, in fact, citizens of Nano, which means that it would be illegal to kill them.
As the book draws to a close, Arthur is on his way to check out a possible university for Random, when, during a hyperspace jump, he is flung across alternate universes, has a brief encounter with Fenchurch, and ends up exactly where he would want to be. And then the Vogons turn up again.
In it was adapted for radio as the Hexagonal Phase of the radio series, with its premiere episode first transmitted on 8 March   exactly forty years, to the day, from the first episode of the first series, the Primary Phase . Two omnibus editions were created by Douglas Adams to combine the Hitchhiker series novels and to "set the record straight". Therefore, he stated in the introduction of The More Than Complete Hitchhiker's Guide that "anything I put down wrong here is, as far as I'm concerned, wrong for good.
Published in , this page leatherbound omnibus edition contains "wrong for good"  versions of the four Hitchhiker series novels at the time, and also includes one short story:. Published in , this page leatherbound final omnibus edition contains five Hitchhiker series novels and one short story:. Also appearing in The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide , at the end of Adams's introduction, is a list of instructions on "How to Leave the Planet", providing a humorous explanation of how one might replicate Arthur and Ford's feat at the beginning of Hitchhiker's.
The popularity of the radio series gave rise to a six-episode television series, directed and produced by Alan J. It employed many of the actors from the radio series and was based mainly on the radio versions of Fits the First to Sixth. A second series was at one point planned, with a storyline, according to Alan Bell and Mark Wing-Davey that would have come from Adams's abandoned Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen project instead of simply making a TV version of the second radio series.
However, Adams got into disputes with the BBC accounts differ: problems with budget, scripts, and having Alan Bell involved are all offered as causes , and the second series was never made. A new television series for Hulu was announced in July Carlton Cuse was named as the showrunner alongside Jason Fuchs , who will also be writing for the show.
Segments of several of the books were adapted as part of the BBC 's The Big Read survey and programme, broadcast in late After several years of setbacks and renewed efforts to start production and a quarter of a century after the first book was published, the big-screen adaptation of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was finally shot. Pre-production began in , filming began on 19 April and post-production began in early September A full list of release dates is available at the IMDb.
The plot of the film adaptation of Hitchhiker's Guide differs widely from that of the radio show, book and television series. The romantic triangle between Arthur, Zaphod, and Trillian is more prominent in the film; and visits to Vogsphere, the homeworld of the Vogons which, in the books, was already abandoned , and Viltvodle VI are inserted. The film covers roughly events in the first four radio episodes, and ends with the characters en route to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, leaving the opportunity for a sequel open. A unique appearance is made by the Point-of-View Gun , a device specifically created by Adams himself for the movie.
Both a standard double-disc edition and a UK-exclusive numbered limited edition "Giftpack" were released on this date. The "Giftpack" edition includes a copy of the novel with a "movie tie-in" cover, and collectible prints from the film, packaged in a replica of the film's version of the Hitchhiker's Guide prop.
Single-disc releases in the Blu-ray format and UMD format for the PlayStation Portable were also released on the respective dates in these three countries. There have been multiple professional and amateur stage adaptations of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. There were three early professional productions, which were staged in and This show was adapted from the first series' scripts and was directed by Ken Campbell , who went on to perform a character in the final episode of the second radio series.
