Quiz of the Month – January 2016

You may have noticed that the Quiz of the Month is not actually a monthly feature. However, it’s back for January 2016.

Below you will find a list of authors with clues after their names. Each answer is the title of a book by the listed author, and that title contains a number in it. Some of the clues may be simple and direct while others may be a bit obscure. Example: Ken Kesey, the big Indian – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  The big Indian is a character in Kesey’s classic.

As always, you will find the answers to the quiz on my Quiz Answers page.
