Introduction by Graham Sleight
When the Earth is demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass, Arthur Dent finds himself hitching a ride on a spaceship full of grumpy bureaucrats, accompanied by his now-revealed-as-an-alien best friend, while still in his pyjamas and dressing gown. Frankly, it´s all a bit much before lunchtime. Thank goodness for the most remarkable book ever to come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor: The Hitchhiker´s Guide to the Galaxy, which carries a very helpful message on its cover: Don´t Panic.
