Out of the Blue

If publishing the third book in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy couldn't stop the series, I guess there's no reason the death of its author should make it that much more difficult to continue hitching along. Sure enough Final Adams novel 'to be published' (thanks RebelScum and Maverick) is a BBC news story with news that A Salmon of Doubt, the sixth novel in the series, will be published as part of a collection of the author's final writing next May, on the first anniversary of Adams' untimely death. The novel, which Adams was apparently working on for the last 11 years, was found on his hard drive by his widow and personal assistant. It is unclear who will finish the book, as several different drafts have been discovered.

Happy Birthday to 3D Realms' Lee Jackson, another old codger.
