Dirk Gently s Holistic Detective Agency Book Excerpt:

From Douglas Adams, the legendary author of one of the most beloved science fiction novels of all time, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, comes a wildly inventive novel—in trade paperback for the first time—of ghosts, time travel, and one detective's mission to save humanity from extinction. Quirky and bumbling private investigator Dirk Gently stumbles upon a ghost, millions of years old, wandering the earth and disturbing its people. Dirk soon discovers this phantom yearns for more than a good haunting: it is desperately trying to go back in time to prevent its own death. But this ghost was no ordinary person, and helping it save itself just might change the modern world as we know it. And not in a good way… Endlessly entertaining, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency proves that, indeed, “few writers have had such an infectious prose style as Adams” (The Observer). As Dirk Gently tries to solve the mysteries of the universe and the human soul, readers will have their own mystery to solve: Where did the time go?

Dirk Gently s Holistic Detective Agency Box Set Book Excerpt:

Discover the hilarious and beloved Dirk Gently novels from legendary science fiction author Douglas Adams—now the basis for the all-new TV series on BBC America! Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency Douglas Adams, the “master of wacky words and even wackier tales” (Entertainment Weekly), once again boggles the mind with a completely unbelievable story of ghosts, time travel, eccentric computer geniuses, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the end of the world, and—of course—missing cats. The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul When a check-in desk at London’s Heathrow Airport disappears in a ball of orange flame, the event is said to be an act of God. But which god, wonders holistic detective Dirk Gently. And how is this connected to Dirk’s battle with his cleaning lady over his filthy refrigerator…or to the murder of his latest client? Or are these events just another stretch of coincidences in the life of the world’s most off-kilter private investigator?

Dirk Gently s Holistic Detective Agency The Interconnectedness of All Kings Book Excerpt:

After writing all the many and conflicting versions of the legendary Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, beloved author Douglas Adams created Dirk Gently: a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability and physics, and a love of cats and pizza. In his first-ever comic series, Dirk has been forced to leave his beloved England behind, coming to the too-sunny, too-cheery, and altogether too-bizarre-even-for-Dirk city of San Diego, California, where he gets embroiled in three separate (or are they?) cases involving reincarnated Egyptians, golden cell phones, and copycat killers. All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea.

In Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Dirk finds himself on the trail of a gruesome murderer who is somehow involved with the works of Coleridge, quantum physics, and the enigmatic study of the Cambridge Professor of Chronology. Ultimately, the stakes of the case are far greater than a single murder, but go to the fate of life on Earth. Confused? Don't be - everything is connected.

The Hitchhiker s Guide Book Excerpt:

Don't panic! Everything you need to know about cult author Douglas Adams and his most famous creation, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, is in here. From its unlikely start as a BBC radio serial in 1978, Hitchhiker's Guide developed into five bestselling novels, a BAFTA-winning television series, spoken word LPs that made the pop charts, dozens of extraordinary stage productions around the world, a computer game which topped the charts for a whole year - and now a Hollywood feature film. The Pocket Essential Hitchhiker's Guide is the only book in the galaxy to document and explain all the contradictory variants of the story, packed with bizarre trivia and illuminating quotes from many of those directly involved in Hitchhiker's Guide, including Douglas Adams himself. Also included is information on Douglas Adams' other work: the Dirk Gently novels, The Meaning of Liff, Last Chance to See, Starship Titanic and his contributions to Doctor Who, Monty Python and Comic Relief. This new edition is fully revised and updated to include the Hitchhiker's Guide movie and the brand new radio series.
