Today's Special Quiz is Horror and Gothic, naturally. But tomorrow it could be Nabokov, Orwell, Beckett, Virginia Woolf, James Ellroy, Lorca or a lot of other writers featured in these amusing literary quizzes from The Barcelona Review. Just choose your own. Most quizzes are in English or Spanish; none are too easy or too erudite and, best of all, most of them have answers too.

Hmm. I got exactly 9.5/25 correct (Only knew the name of the book for #2).. that seems a fair measure of my gothic horror knowledge. I will now commence to play with their other quizzes. Gracias.

It might slightly improve the site if they were to employ a student CGI(*) programmer to change it to allow one to enter answers and then get a score. It might take half a day and cost them nothing but goodwill but, then, maybe they have a tight budget.

(*) CGI is what people use to provide a "customer experience" when they are too web-savvy to try and get away with some Flash(TM) fluff.


Am I being too bitter about this victory of the great uneducated/uneducatable ?
