In an effort to liven up the boards again, some of us have decided to resuscitate the Daily pub quiz but we will be doing

it on a weekly basis. This is a tribute to the original founder, jstkdn. We have decided to take turns coming

up with the questions. The team consists of myself, Ms. Helen, nicnic and detectivehappy.


1. Each week we will post 10 questions.
2. Each Quiz runs exactly one week.
3. The first person that has all 10 questions right, wins. Or if no one has all questions right, the best one wins.
4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.
5. No cash involved. Just glory. :)

Well, time's up and it looks like the winner, with all questions correctly answered, is Ctown... wait... this is a FAKE hundred dollar bill!

So the winner is Nic, with nine of ten answers correct! See? Y'all complained it looked so hard, but it was so easy.

1. Sells the next book. Mickey Spillane

Nobody reads a mystery to get to the middle. They read it to get to the end. If it's a letdown, they won't buy anymore. The first page sells that book. The last page sells your next book.
Author: Mickey Spillane

2. The observance of trifles.

You know my method. It is founded upon the observance of trifles.
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

3. Blockheads

Mystery is the wisdom of blockheads.
Author: Horace Walpole

4. Anais Nin

The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery.
Anais Nin

5. Completely unimportant. (the Dame is, of course, Dame Agatha Christie)

It is completely unimportant. That is why it is so interesting!”
Agatha Christie quotes

6. Sue Grafton

I spent the first twenty years of my writing career preparing for the mystery genre, which is my favorite literary form.
Sue Grafton

7. You can often miss the truth that is staring you in the face.

It's a great thriller or mystery, but on another level it's a film about the fact that, if you only look at a person through one lens, or only believe what you're told, you can often miss the truth that is staring you in the face.
Kevin Spacey (about The Usual Suspects)

8. Most everybody.

Mystery is something that appeals to most everybody.
Angela Lansbury

9. Mystery and surprise. Julia Cameron

Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise.”
Julia Cameron quotes

10. Jean Genet

This summer, I'll be bringing out a mystery that involves a young lawyer and a court scene the likes of which I don't think you've ever seen.
James Patterson (who says he was most influenced by Jean Genet)
