Hey, I put in my entries of Palestine and Egypt before Stitchy put in his amendments which included Israel and Egypt.

But you have clearly won anyway, Stitchy.

You're absolutely right, BP! I never really checked when I got home, trying to remember the books I though of while I was out riding. You did get those in earlier than me.

The advantage of being a day ahead of everyone, and grabbing all the easy ones. But I gave the question right before this one, so why doesn't someone else pose the next question, just to freshen up the kitty?

OK (since I missed out of these turbo-charged questions), here's a quiz question with only ONE correct answer. That's right folks - ONE!

What is Herman Webster Mudgett's claim to fame?

First man (intentionally) over Niagara Falls in a barrel?

[EDIT: Wild guess proves to be wrong. It was Annie Edson Taylor]

Very wildly wrong.

The first man to drive across the US in an automobile. I read about this last year in the Smithsonian Magazine, but don't really recall the man's name. So yeah it's a complete guess.

I'm pretty sure that Orlok is right. I think he was the one that built a big weird house (sort of like a maze) opened it as a hotel and murdered a load of guests.

The heart transplant guy was called Barnard, I think.

Indeedly - he was one of the first documented serial killers in the USA - who designed a "hotel of death" for the Chicago 1893 World's fair - and made famous in Erik Larson's "The Devil in the White City" - which book has been optioned by Mr. di Caprio for a future film.

It was a pure guess - never heard of him.

Ok, some more linkages to guess. What are the links between the following:

A. House, Knock, Mate, Peg Out

B. +, Checkout, Chrome, Earth

C. Images, MASH, Nashville, Short Cuts

D. Errand, Gold Paradise, Parsley
