So what gets a 42?
I've read it at least 7 times: Piers Anthony's great fusion of magic, science and supernatural, "On a Pale Horse." Genre bending, mixing theology and adventure, there is nothing quite like the story of Zane, the man who became death. A book you can read over and over and each time find something new about it - or yourself- that gets a 42. Dune, it goes without saying, is a 42. Another? Memory, by Lois Bujold gets the 42, with her works A Civil Affair and Curse of Challion hot on its heels at 40.
