Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the bookstore, Douglas Adams presents The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
• The Time: Infinity
• The Place: The Universe
• The Survivors: Arthur Dent(earthling)—a mild-mannered, out-to-lunch space traveler, searching the cosmos for a decent cup of tea. Ford Prefect (alien)—unflap-pable researcher for that most successful and useful book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Trillian (earthling)— sexy space cadet who gave Arthur the cold shoulder at a cocktail party; she is now the girlfriend of Zaphod Beeblebrox (alien)—two-headed, three-armed ex-head honcho of the Universe.

This fantastic foursome encounters paranoid androids, existential elevators, improbability drives, and kill-o-zap blasters on an interstellar romp that takes them from a thirty-megaton rock concert on Kakrafoon to Milliways, the restaurant at the end of the Universe, where the main dish of the day introduces itself and the floor show is doomsday.

How will it all end? Will they discover the origin of the bathtub? Will they find the significance of gin and tonic? Will they find out the question to the answer 42? For the answers to these and other cosmic questions, climb aboard Douglas Adams's zany spaceship and get ready to blast off. Take an improbable ride; your table is ready at The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
