In a sense of serving a potentially cornfused viewing public, I'll ask right now:

Is there anyone here that isn't familiar with Douglas Adam's "HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy"?

If so you're best advised to either ignore all references to Improbability Drive, a drink called a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, and simpering robots. . . or read the five volume trilogy.

Great, now that you've said there is a fifth volume, I'll have to read that too.

Edit: there are actually six novels in this trilogy...

So tell me -- if there's a sixth - what is it?  I presume it comes after Young Zaphod Play it Safe?

Never mind, there is only five. What I thought was the sixth was something else altogether.

There is a sixth, though not written by Douglas Adams, it is an official part of the series authorized by Adams' estate. Called "And Another Thing".
