HGTTG VI OMG (and another thing)

The Guardian yesterday released the news that Eoin Colfer of Artemus Fowl fame is to write the sixth book in Douglas Adams' iconic trilogy The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy; which it to be titled And Another Thing... It's due for completion by October next year.

From TFA:
Colfer, who has been a fan of Hitchhiker since his schooldays, said being given the opportunity to continue the series was "like suddenly being offered the superpower of your choice". "For years I have been finishing this incredible story in my head and now I have the opportunity to do it in the real world," he added. "It is a gift from the gods. So, thank you Thor and Odin."
