So how did you all do?


Enjoy!

How did The Great Arch Lich Thoth-Amon do? He got a 7. Pretty good considering he reads mostly dark and gritty fantasy.

First in with 10 out of 10! This should have been called the "old science fiction quiz," though. Nearly all of them came out before I was even born. My roommate got 9 out of 10; like Freejack, he missed A Canticle for Leibowitz.

Oh dear, I got 10 out of 10. This makes me officially a Scifi Geek!
You got 10 correct out of 10 (100%) Of the 7142 times this quiz has been taken: Average Score: 5.9 / 10 = 59% High Score: 10 / 10 = 100% Edit: reading Umiushi's post above ... maybe the high score just makes me old :)

I agree, it's an Old Science Fiction quiz! Nothing wrong with old sci-fi, but with so much written out there, how do you determine what's an accurate quiz. Oh by the way, got 9 out of 10, missed number 8 but I've never read any Foundation books.

Yeah, I suppose I'll have to just accept that I'm also very long in the tooth.

Somehow, I got 8 out of 10. But to be honest, I guessed at most of them. (Or was it deductive reasoning? Hmmm.)

Well, what do you know.

You got 10 correct out of 10 (100%)

High Score: 10 / 10 = 100%


I managed to score higher than the great Arch Lich himself. Guess that either means that, 1. I am old, 2. did really good at reasoning out which answer was correct, or 3. both.

9 out of 10 for me. Only 2 guesses and I got the opening to Foundation wrong.

Nice bit, T-A, keep it up :)

If you read any SF they fairly telegraph themselves. 10 for 10.

Actually, I would not have been surprised if tesral would have gotten an 11 out of 10.

The Foundation Trilogy was one of the first SF books I got my hands on.
