This collection of writings is the unique last word from one of the world's most successful science fiction writers. Douglas Adams created the extraordinarily successful novel 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy', which has won him almost cult status amongst his fans all over the world. With his fondness for paradox, his galactic perspective on things and his wonderful and inimitable way with meaningful nonsense he has earned a reputation as 'the Lewis Carroll of the twentieth century'. 'The Salmon of Doubt' includes the unfinished novel that Douglas Adams was working on at the time of his death, together with a fascinating collection of writings from 3,000 unpublished files stored on his computer hard drive. This is an absolute must for all fans of this comic genius.
