It was just announced that Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl author) is to write a 6th book in the Hitchhiker's Guide series! I hope he does a good job...

I'm so excited/terrified!!! lol.  One one hand, I had read that Adams was unhappy with the way he had ended the whole thing (something that is apparently somewhat addressed in Salmon of Doubt ) and so it's kind of like the continuation of Dune that Brian Herbert's done...on the other hand, I feel apprehensive...I mean, what if it sucks?  I haven't read any of the Artemis Fowl books so I don't know if this author's a good choice for it (I would have thought maybe Pratchett?) but I guess we'll just have to wait and see, eh?  Thanks for the info!!!
