Eoin Colfer + Hitchhiker's Guide = OMG!!!

The world is a more glorious place this morning, dear readers, due to Wednesday's announcement that Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer has been given the opportunity to write a sixth book in Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy".

Seriously, words cannot express the awesomeness of this news.

The book will feature an original, 100% Colfer-created plot, using Adams's characters*. Colfer will not be writing this book "as Adams" (unlike Sebastian Faulks, who recently wrote a James Bond novel "as Ian Fleming"). The project has been sanctioned by Adams's widow, Jane Belson, and will come out in October of 2009.

Happy Friday, guys!

*Making it fanfiction of the coolest kind.
