    His wife has Eoin Colfer finish the series off. Much like Robert Jordan's wife.

    You sir will not regret it, and with a reason like that. The book is made for you.

    Eh? How did I miss this?

    It seems rather wrong though, messing with other people's work after they've died. I'll probably read it regardless though, just to see what it's like.

    Shameless attempt to grab money from the established name by surviving relatives and also the has-been author Eoin Colfer, who after a great start has faded completely into obscurity

    Douglas Adams is dead. It would be like a grandchild of Isaac Assimov writing a continuation of the Foundation Series. It is completely unacceptable, and in very poor taste

    What book? The series ended with number 5.

    A trilogy in 4 parts was funny, a trilogy in 5 parts was pushing it, a trilogy in 6 parts is like ''yeah we get it, stfu now''.

    I read both, as I'm open minded and cope with two different styles of writing.
