Trivia Quiz - Joseph_Goldin - May 30th, 2004

I found a copy of an old Wiscon V, Andre Norton Workshop, Trivia Quiz that I thought might be fun.
1. The name of Captain Jellico's pet hoobat:
2. Name for space-going branch of the Thieves Guild:
3. Eighth-house card in Kethan's tarot reading:
4. Gypsy tribe that produces moon-singers:
5. Slum of Korwar where two novels begin:
6. Goddess of fruitfulness to whom women pray during childbirth:
7. Tune played on drum by Dane Thorson to combat mass hypnosis:
8. Most important trade item to a Salarik:
9. Term for a high but not top-ranking official:
10.Common game of chance played across many worlds:

And as a matter of real trivia: The largest Special Norton Boxed set produced was a 77-book special boxed set of books made up by Books, Inc. in San Jose, was purchased as a Christmas present for $146.80. It was originally made up as a display joke, and was one of a kind, since so many of the books were going out of print at the time. Joe

Cool! Without any checking I got all but 3 & 7. And at 11 PM too. I am sooooo proud of myself--Later Kind Folks--Paul


Trivia Quiz - Irene - June 1st, 2004

It's after 10 pm & I'm just back from Baltimore.
I didn't have a clue on most of these. I better wait until tomorrow.

Sleep now.


PS: There was a huge box on my door step. I'm was to tired to do more than get the thing open. More stuff from under the table.


Trivia Quiz - Irene - June 1st, 2004

Much more rest has been gotten now. But I'm embarassed to say, that I definitely don't remember 2, 3, 4. I think I know 1 and 7. Gosh that's only 50%. Maybe that's why I can read the books over & over. I never remember the tiny details that make the books real interesting.

...

So Joe, do you own that 77 volume "boxed" set?


Trivia Quiz - Joseph_Goldin - June 2nd, 2004

No Irene, I don't own the set, I found an old press clipping, and found it of interest, I have a small B&W photo showing it. I must admit that I only got 8 of the answers myself. Joe


Trivia Quiz - Paul B. - June 6th, 2004

Ok,

I am emarassed to say I only got 6 of 10.

On the other hand, I'm sure we could come up with some additional trivia questions from our vast, combined knowledge of the Lady's works.....
