What’s on the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Timeline?

This is the unofficial Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy timeline, pulled from the series created by Douglas Adams. This includes the radio plays, the novels, and the works produced after Adams’ death. The series is hailed as one of the best sci-fi series of all time. Eoin Colfer was selected to finish Douglas Adams’ series with a sixth book, though there doesn’t appear to be any plans in the works to further continue the series with Colfer.
