Oh Freddled Gruntbugly

Taken from Slashdot today:

“Eoin Colfer, the Irish author of a number of books (including the popular children’s book series ‘Artemis Fowl’), has been directly approached by Douglas Adam’s widow, Jane Belson, to write a sixth book to continue the (even more) increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy.”

Part of me wonders if another writer could actually write another HHGTTG novel like Dougls Adams (the closest I’ve found is Terry Pratchett), and another part of me wonders HOW a sequel can be written when Mr. Adams killed off all the Earthly characters (Arthur Dent and Trillian) at the end of the 5th novel. I was always upset at Adams for ending the series how he did. Maybe there’s redemption after death?

This could be very interesting.
