Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul

Douglas Adams. Pocket Books, $4.95 (320pp) ISBN 978-0-671-69404-3

``The British author of the Hitchhiker trilogy and other immensely popular lunacies, Adams permits no whiff of common sense to spoil his new novel, which combines fantasy, hilarity and creeping horrors,'' remarked PW . Here, sleuth Dirk Gently investigates a lawyer and an advertiser who possess the soul of the god Odin. ``The plot's ramifications are marvelous, bloody and irresistible.'' (Jan.)
