Fictionary 6 (WCCQ)

examplepuzzI used to work as a puzzle editor and compiler and thought it might be fun to make up a book puzzle. This is a wordplay challenge in which each circle contains a cryptic-style clue. For the example, over on the right here, for a puzzle where the theme is ‘British Literature’, the answer is ‘Trainspotting’. (TRA – in -SPOTTING, yes?)

See if you can work out the answer to the nine challenges below, arranged in approximate order of difficulty.

This one’s a little different. It’s a puzzle I made up for the venerable Windsor Castle Christmas Quiz, a seasonal challenge of tough puzzles and hard drinking for eggheads. Which meant that this one had to be hard, almost impossibly so. Therefore, be warned, this is not for the faint-hearted. But with that health warning in mind, let’s proceed.

The WCCQ Fictionary contains clues to 5 novels, 1 collection and 3 writers; the resulting answers can be grouped, via a common link, into 3 groups of 3 (Nobel Prizewinners, for example, or Novels About Whales, say).

I’ll add a link to the answers in a week or so. And let me know what you think? Too easy? Too hard? Like some more? (You can use the comment box for this, but please don’t put answers in comments.)

Oh, and in case you missed them, here are the previous Fictionary puzzles.

OK, let’s do it, let’s play Fictionary.

  2. สิ่งหนึ่งที่ควรพิจารณาในขณะที่คุณเล่นระหว่างเดินทางคือ คุณจะต้องมีการเชื่อมต่ออินเทอร์เน็ตที่แรง เนื่องจากคุณภาพของเกมคาสิโนสดจะลดลงอย่างรวดเร็วเมื่อคุณไม่มีข้อมูล ซึ่งอาจส่งผลต่อการสตรีมและการเดิมพันคาสิโนโดยรวมของคุณ
