O salmão da dúvida

Editora Arqueiro
35

Douglas Adams mudou a cara da ficção científica com a série interplanetária O Mochileiro das Galáxias. Infelizmente, ele fez sua própria viagem para além da Terra cedo demais, deixando milhares de fãs órfãos. Agora mais uma vez os leitores vão poder se deleitar com a sagacidade desse grande autor. Reunindo textos encontrados no computador de Adams após sua morte, este livro traz uma coletânea de histórias, resenhas, artigos e ensaios inéditos, além de oferecer um retrato raro da personalidade do homem por trás da obra: a devoção aos Beatles, o ateísmo radical, o entusiasmo pela tecnologia, a luta obstinada pelos animais em vias de extinção. Mistura de homenagem póstuma ao autor com último presente a seus fãs, O salmão da dúvida é profundo, excêntrico, provocante e divertido. Entre arraias-jamantas, alienígenas de duas cabeças, teorias quânticas e sinfonias de Bach, você vai encontrar: • Dez capítulos do livro em que ele trabalhava quando morreu. • Um ensaio filosófico questionando a existência de Deus. • Comentários sobre a constante evolução da tecnologia.• Um conto protagonizado por Zaphod Beeblebrox.• Relatos sobre sua infância, seus traumas e seu nariz.

In one complete volume, here are the five classic novels from Douglas Adams’s beloved Hitchhiker series.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Seconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is saved by Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised Guide. Together they stick out their thumbs to the stars and begin a wild journey through time and space.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
The moment before annihilation at the hands of warmongers is a curious time to crave tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his comrades as they hurtle across the galaxy in a desperate search for a place to eat.

Life, the Universe and Everything
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky– so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals can avert Armageddon: mild-mannered Arthur Dent and his stalwart crew.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Back on Earth, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription thrusts him back to reality. So to speak.

Mostly Harmless
Just when Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, all hell breaks loose. Can he save the Earth from total obliteration? Can he save the Guide from a hostile alien takeover? Can he save his daughter from herself?
