First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978 and recently voted the Nation's Favourite Audiobook in a Guardian Poll. Stranded on Prehistoric Earth since the end of the first series, Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect are once again trying to hitch their way off the planet. Zaphod Beeblebrox, meanwhile, finds his visit to the offices of the Guide rudely interrupted by Frogstar fighters, who further threaten to feed him to the Total Perspective Vortex. Could this prove fatal for his ego? With the three reunited, Arthur's preoccupation with tea soon gets them all into hot water before they fetch up on the planet Brontitall. There they find an enormous guano-encrusted statue of Arthur, and an indigenous species in something of a flap. As a woeful story of economic collapse at the hands (feet?) of the shoe shop industry unfolds, Arthur meets Lintilla -- for whom fate has in store a very unhappy marriage -- and Marvin gets to be a hero once again. All this culminates in a meeting with the Man in the Shack who apparently runs the Universe

Clouds of witness a Lord Peter mystery by Dorothy L Sayers ( Recording )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rustic old Riddlesdale Lodge was a Wimsey family retreat filled with country pleasures and the thrill of the hunt -- until the game turned up human and quite dead. He lay among the chrysanthemums, wore slippers and a dinner jacket and was Lord Peter's brother-in-law-to-be. His accused murderer was Wimsey's own elder brother, and if murder set all in the family wasn't enough to boggle the unflappable Lord Wimsey, perhaps a few twists of fate would be -- a mysterious vanishing midnight letter from Egypt .... a grieving fiancee (Lord Peter's sister!) with suitcase in hand .... and a bullet destined for one very special Wimsey
