When I got back home today I had a pleasant surprise in that my prize from this quiz, a signed copy of Curse of the Pogo Stick by Colin Cotterill had been delivered. I have to admit that I only spotted the quiz after it became easier here but I might have guessed the original answer anyway.

How many world famous authors have spent time in a colonial club in Burma and written a book entitled Shooting an Elephant apart from George Orwell?

The interesting stamp and Heaven Lake Press label showed me that my prize had come all the way from Thailand, which I thought was rather exciting. Thanks Colin.

    >Congratulations, Norman! I have not read this installment of this excellent series yet.Rather than Thailand or Burma, I have been braving the wilds of Cheam tonight, at a school information evening for my younger daughter. Oh, the wilds of the no 213 bus on the way home – the teenage denizens of mid-evening SW-ish London….sigh…..
