Children's author Eoin Colfer is to write a sixth novel in the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series, seven years after the death of its creator Douglas Adams, Penguin said on Wednesday.

Can you fix your title, make it "New" instead of "Hew" or does it takes an Uber-Super-Mod?

I read the first three in the series, and perhaps something else by Adams, his stuff is mostly good, but I dunno, it sometimes feels tedious or something. So I suppose this announcement doesn't excite me. Maybe it should, who knows, this author just might do better.

I reread Robert Sheckley's "Miindswap" a couple years ago (a humorous SF novel that predates Adams' books) and found it hilarious.

Didn't I just see another of these threads (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116179) around here somewhere?

Scene: Heaven, the Humidor bar.

Ian Fleming to Douglas Adams: Told you so, old chap.

Douglas Adams: Pass the brandy.
