Eoin Colfer - And Another Thing...
An Englishman's continuing search through space and time for a decent cup of tea . . . Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, has not been entirely without incident. Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary. And of course Arthur Dent has comprehensively failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. Arthur has finally made it home to Earth, but that does not mean he has escaped his fate. Arthur's chances of getting his hands on a decent cuppa have evaporated rapidly, along with all the world's oceans. For no sooner has he touched down on the planet Earth than he finds out that it is about to be blown up . . . again. And Another Thing . . . is the rather unexpected, but very welcome, sixth installment of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. It features a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese.

Howard Jacobson - The Mighty Walzer
Teenage table tennis champion Oliver Walzer knows a lot about ping-pong, but he's yet to learn how to use his own balls — and so Howard Jacobson's coming of age story gets its theme and endless opportunity for comic set pieces. The humour is deadpan and bites hard, while Walzer's worldview is shot through with misanthropy. But there's still an irresistible charm to the novel's affectionate nostalgia for Jewish life in 1950s Manchester, born of the fact that so much of it is taken from the author's own intriguing autobiography.
Boyd Morrison - The Noah's Ark Quest
The greatest archaeological discovery in history could mean the end of mankind. When brilliant archaeologist Dilara Kenner is contacted by Sam Watson, an old family friend who says that he has crucial information about her missing father, Dilara abandons her Peruvian dig and rushes to Los Angeles to meet him. But at the airport, Sam speaks instead of Noah's Ark—the artifact her father had long been searching for—and the possible death of billions. Before Sam can explain, he collapses. With his dying breath, he urges Dilara to find Tyler Locke—a man she's never heard of. Two days later Dilara manages to track down former combat engineer Tyler Locke on an oil rig off Newfoundland. Her helicopter transport goes down well short of the oil rig's landing pad and Dilara and those aboard nearly drown. After Tyler accomplishes a daring rescue, Dilara convinces him that the crash was no accident. Tyler agrees to help her unearth the mystery behind Noah's Ark and, more importantly, her father's disappearance. Their investigation soon reveals that a group of religious fanatics has recovered a weapon from the Ark that will let them recreate effects of the biblical flood and recreate humanity according to their leader's twisted vision. Now Tyler and Dilara have just seven days to find the Ark and the secret hidden inside before it's used to wipe out civilization again.
