I love the entire Spacejock series, but to compare it to THHGTTG is to compare apples and meteorites. Both contain sharp and witty exchanges between the main characters, but The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is more firmly based in speculative science-fiction with smatterings of popular philosophy thrown into the mix while the Spacejock series is more slapstick and draws on the get-rich-quick schemes of its main character to drive the story forward.
