The Relentless Adventures of Captain Speedo Episode 42 - So Long, and Thanks for All the Books is a Hugo interactive fiction game and is © 2001 by Gilles Duchesne. It was a participant in the Douglas N. Adams Tribute Speed-IF event.

In this tribute to Douglas Adams, you once again play as Captain Speedo, the hero of a popular sci-fi radio series. In the last episode, our hero's spaceship was captured by the evil crime lord, Lord Feeblekaterbrop. Powerless to fight him, you must now follow his order to find his childhood blankie hidden somewhere in this space complex.

This solution is by David Welbourn.

The actor playing Lord Feeblekaterbrop leaves the set, overcome by the sad news.

The game has ended.





Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
