That was dealt with by me, in a message posted to the list, in response to a similar claim, I believe by you, in mid-July.

My citation was correct.

See the message below.

The citation is correct.

The edition was
"published in 1992 by Pan Books
an imprint of Pan MacMillan Ltd
Pan MacMillan, 20 New Wharf Road, London N1 9RR
Basingstoke and Oxford
...
ISBN 0 330 31611 7".

The front cover is a picture of a bathroom wall, with a Philishave (?) (three-headed) electric shaver on a glass shelf, on the left, on the right hand end of the glass shelf, is a digital watch, above that, is a glass hanging on the wall, containg three toothbrushes, and between the electricity supply socket ito which the electric shaver is plugged, and the glass hanging on the wall, is a mirror, containing an image of the Vogon bulldozer, oriented in the direction of travel from the top right corner of the mirror, to the bottom left corner of the mirror. The wall tiles are coloured darkish blue.

See http://www.sfbok.se/asp/artikel.asp?VolumeID=24535 , for an illustration of the cover of the book.

And, the cited quote is from the topmost paragraph on page 129 of the cited book. It is the second sentence of the
paragraph.

The first sentence of that paragraph, is
" 'Exactly!' said Deep Thought".
