I find the situation far preferable to the other option, which would be to put Douglas Adams' name huge on the cover as if he had somehow written this book from beyond the grave. Far too often dead authors' names are carried on by ghostwriters, turned into a brand name. Good to see that they went the honest route here.

(Adams' name is right at the top of the cover, and is the first thing my eyes went to when I saw the image, so I disagree that they failed to credit him, too.)
