The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, whose house was demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadely, however, the weekend has only just begun, and the Galaxy is a very, very, very large and startling place.
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe - When all questions of space, time, and matter and the nature of being have been resolved, only one question remains - 'Where shall we have dinner?' The restaurant at the end of the universe provides the ultimate gastronomic experience, and for once there is no morning after to worry about.
Life, the Universe and Everything - In consequence of a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent finds himself living in a hideously miserable cave on prehistoric earth. He discovers that the galaxy is not only mind-bogglingly big and bewildering but also that most of the things that happen in it are staggeringly unfair.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish - Just as Arthur Dent's sense of reality is in its dickiest state he suddenly finds the girl of his dreams - in the last place in the universe in which he would expect to find anything at all, but which 3,976,000,000 people would find oddly familiar. They go in search of God's Final Message to his Creation and, in a dramatic break with tradition, actually find it.
Mostly Harmless - It's easy to get disheartened when your planet has been blown up, the woman you love has vanished in a misunderstanding about the nature of space/time, the spaceship you are on crashes in flames and all you have to fall back on are a few sandwich-making skills. And all hell really breaks loose for Arthur Dent with the arrival of his daughter and a mission to save the Earth.
