Ever since reading the holy trilogy soon to be hexology in my early teens, I have had a “secret” obsession with the number 42. My phone number begins with 4242, my license plate is 42, I have a lot of pictures on flickr in the 42 group. Just the other day I was playing around with twitter and discovered that my twitter id ends with 4242. Coincidence? - Maybe, but the number still carries a very special meaning for me and always will :-) > “Six by nine. Forty two.” “That’s it. That’s all there is.” “I > always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe” > ((Douglas Adams (1 January 1980). > The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.))
I look forward to the 6th book in the trilogy, and even though it won’t be Douglas Adams’ own words directly, I still believe Eoin Colfe ((He’s even on twitter! - but then again who isn’t)) will be able to capture the mood and the spirit of previous books in the series.
Don’t forget your towel!
