There's much love for the Penguin Classics on my part. It makes my textbooks cost about 10 cents. Ghavrel Send a noteboard - 18/01/2010 09:45:26 PM
As Camilla said, they published what they called a sixth Hitchhiker book. And it was that person who writes Artemis Fowl. Colfer. Terrible author.
"We feel safe when we read what we recognise, what does not challenge our way of thinking.... a steady acceptance of pre-arranged patterns leads to the inability to question what we are told."
