Thursday E. Next to Tricia Marie McMillan, aka Trillion Astra

We meet Thursday E. Next in Jasper Fforde’s The Eyre Affair. She was recruited into the Special Operations Network, where she joined the London division after a career in the police force and the military. Thursday first discovered bookjumping* as an eight-year old; Mrs. Nakajima helped her into the manuscript for Jane Eyre during a visit to Haworth House.

Tricia Marie McMillan, aka Trillian Astra, appears in Douglas Adams' The Restaurant at the End of the Galaxy. An astrophysicist and mathematician, she is now on a spaceship with Zaphod Beeblebrox, Arthur Dent and the clinically depressed robot Marvin.

* Bookjumping is the act of travelling into a book, travelling back out of the book to the real world or travelling between books and places within BookWorld. All fictional characters are able to do it, as well as a few real people.
