Douglas Adams, the “master of wacky words and even wackier tales” (Entertainment Weekly) once again boggles the mind with a completely unbelievable story of ghosts, time travel, eccentric computer geniuses, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the end of the world, and—of course—missing cats.

Two wildly inventive novels by this superselling master of wit, zaniness, mystery, time-travel, and more. In these inspired stories detective Dirk Gently tries to solve the mysteries of the universe and the human soul. Includes Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Dark Tea Time of Soul.
