I haven’t read most of these novels, so my score was low: 12
I hope next week brings an end to my low scores. Maybe it can save my pride like it saved Borders for a few years.

I wrote a few of these questions, so:
Round One: 9 (nine points)
Round Two: 10 (or, twenty points)
Round Three: 7 (or, 21 points)
Vernor Vinge pronounces the “e” in his last name, so it rhymes with “stingy.”
William Gibson in the 1967 CBC hippie doc (video shows only the first fifteen minutes. If you drop by some post-COVID day, I have the entire thing on tape somewhere, and the VCR still functions– or it did, the last time we tried it. Maybe I should digitize that doc).

Good to know. These pronunciation gaffs get me when I don’t write the questions (I go and find the pronunciation when I write the question). I should have known better since I know another German author, Cornelia Funke, gets the E pronounced as well (though with a “UH” sound).
