The Wide World The True Adventure Magazine for Men

By: N/A

Price: $25.00

Publisher: UK, George Newnes: 1960

Seller ID: 009469


June 1960 issue, maybe 80 or so pp (numbering seems to run from earlier issues & there's a spinkle of romans for good measure. I think you'll buy this not just for the fiction but the ads are a treat too "Enjoy life in a Morris Oxford" or get a folding dinghy for fifteen pounds. Index to stories is in map form - a pretty good idea. View more info

The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time is a posthumous collection of previously published and unpublished material by Douglas Adams. It consists largely of essays about technology and life experiences, but its major selling point is the inclusion of the incomplete novel on which Adams was working at the time of his death, The Salmon of Doubt (from which the collection gets its title, a reference to the Celtic myth of the Salmon of Wisdom). 299pp View more info

224 perfect white pp hold the plot of this novel & if after reading you're inclined to a more detailed look at the ship herself we have several books along those lines & even a "Titanic Lifeboat Crew" t-shirt! review >>> This was simply brilliant. The writing was so powerful I had tears in my eys at the end. I thought the plot was very clever. Frequently (but not too frequently) it foreshadowed the end, but in a subtle and poignant way.
