11. Riders of the Purple Wage, by Philip José Farmer

  • I got 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 12. Largely because I've often re-read The Science Fiction Hall of Fame Vol 1, Ed: Robert Silverberg.

  • You got the secret behind this quiz. All the stories in it appeared either in Science Fiction Hall of Fame, vol. 1, or The Hugo Winners.

    Soon I will post the post-1970s followup quiz.

  • Eh. I only got the one from 'Flowers for Algernon.' I suppose I've got some reading catch-up to do.
