Douglas Adams, on Ultimate Editions

“The history of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is now so complicated that every time I tell it I contradict myself, and whenever I do get it right I’m misquoted. So the publication of this omnibus edition seemed like a good opportunity to set the record straight — or at least firmly crooked. Anything that is put down wrong here is, as far as I’m concerned, wrong for good.” – Douglas Adams, “Introduction: A Guide to the Guide; ‘Some unhelpful remarks from the author'” in The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
